TaxMan Song-Beatle-George Harrisons 1966 Song TAXES

In 1965-66, disgusted by what he viewed as confiscatory taxation by the IRS-UK- England Tax authorities --

a supertax instituted by both governments was taking 95 percent of top earners' income --like his.

George Harrison of The Beatles fame,
wrote a bitter song from the perspective
of a maniacal tax collector:

George's sister Louise Harrison lives in Merriam Woods, Missouri.
Louise owns The www.LiverpoolLegends.com .
They will open in June at The Moon River Theatre.
Here is their website link: www.LiverpoolLegends.com

Here's part of his song:

If you drive a car, I'll tax the street,
If you try to sit, I'll tax your seat.
If you get too cold I'll tax the heat,
If you take a walk, I'll tax your feet.
If you ride a horse, I'll tax it of course.
If you ride a mule to school, I'll tax the mule and the fool
who rode a mule to school,to learn to be a smart ass.

But even Harrison's "Taxman" never conceived of a levy on the RAIN TAX-weather, something currently being instituted in Branson,Mo.

Here's the entire song:

*Taxman*

by: George Harrison

********
Let me tell you how it will be
There's one for you nineteen for me
'Cause I'm the taxman
Yeah I'm the taxman

Should five percent appear too small
Be thankful I don't take it all
'Cause I'm the taxman, yeah I'm the taxman

If you drive a car I'll tax the street
If you try to sit I'll tax your seat
If you get too cold I'll tax the heat
If you take a walk I'll tax your feet
Taxman

'Cause I'm the taxman, yeah I'm the taxman

Don't ask me what I want it for
Ah-ah, Mister Wilson
If you don't want to pay some more
Ah-ah, Mister Heath

'Cause I'm the taxman, yeah I'm the taxman

Now my advice for those who die, Taxman!
Declare the pennies on your eyes, Taxman!
'Cause I'm the taxman, yeah I'm the taxman
And you're working for no one but me
Taxman
