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 percent 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
(taxman mr. Wilson)
If you don't want to pay some more
(Taxman 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.

    Not one american to ever pay taxes anymore, until mismanagement, waste, and corruption in government comes to a grinding halt. Will they put us all in jail? The government won't have the room or the money to do it. They will be forced to immediately take drastic action to avoid such a tax apocalypse. The government is the people, not the beauracracy. Only a unified america can totally transform its tax horrors.
