GEORGE 1980: ''Taxman' was when I first realized that even though we had started earning money, we were actually giving most of it away in taxes.
It was and still is typical.'

JOHN 1980: 'I remember the day he (George) called to ask for help on 'Taxman,' one of his first songs.
I threw in a few one-liners to help the song along because that's what he asked for.
He came to me because he couldn't go to Paul.
Paul wouldn't have helped him at that period.
I didn't want to do it.
I just sort of bit my tongue and said OK.
It had been John and Paul for so long, he'd been left out because he hadn't been a songwriter up until then.'

PAUL 1984: 'George wrote that and I played guitar on it.
He wrote it in anger at finding out what the taxman did.
He had never known before then what could happen to your money.'

GEORGE 1987: 'I was pleased to have Paul play that bit on 'Taxman.' If you notice, he did like a little Indian bit on it for me.'

1,2,3,4

Hrmm!

1,2...

1,2,3,4.

Let me tell you how it will be
There's one for you, nineteen for me
Cos I'm the taxman, yeah, I'm the taxman

Should five per cent appear too small
Be thankful I don't take it all
Cos 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!
Cos I'm the taxman, yeah I'm the taxman

Don't ask me what I want it for (Aahh Mr. Wilson)
If you don't want to pay some more (Aahh Mr. Heath)
Cos I'm the taxman, yeah, I'm the taxman

Now my advice for those who die
Declare the pennies on your eyes
Cos I'm the taxman, yeah, I'm the taxman

And you're working for no one but me
Taxman!
