true George Harrison true
If all taxmen were like George I think people would be a lot happier.
When Obama walks out on stage this should be playing
From what I've read this refers to a 200% supertax the Beatles were slapped with after they had become phenomenal. I'd be upset too.

@bannaniep9 I know right!
Imma go back in time and be a hippie like I should
They would probably be moving to another country ,like many of us here are thinking of doing...
Sounds like the Beatles had an opinion on taxes; wonder what they would have to say about our current situation in the USA?
This song is pretty groovy! Gotta dig some well done political satire :P
my fav
george wrote great tunes - my fav beatle

How about the "New York Commuter Mobility Tax"? If you work in your own house (or studio apartment, for that matter), you pay taxes for commuting from your bed to whatever room you have your computer. Your feet beeing taxed!
Such a great, FUNKY little bass line. Terrific song!
george always my fav beatle
I agree. I don't know why I it for the first time on Pandora.
Never heard this song. It's great.
Have my advice for those who die.Declare the pennies on your eyes. What a great and truthfull line. RIP George.

Excellent bass-line here by Paul!!!! I never knew a "Bass Guitar" was part of a rock band until i heard this very "up-front" riffing by Paul through-out the song. I was just a kid then & didn't really know what the sound was... Thanks Paul ~ you opened up a whole new approach to where the main melody lies with-in a song. Without Taxman, would we have ever had players like Geddy Lee or Steve Harris?
classic and true
TAXMAAAAAAN
