The Tax Man

The Beatles
Schoolhouse Rock explains "taxes".

"The Taxman"

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 per cent 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.
you get too cold I'll tax the heat,
If you take a walk, I'll tax your feet.
Don't ask me what I want it for
If you don't want to pay some more
'Cause I'm the taxman, yeah, I'm the taxman
Now my advice for those who die
Declare the pennies on your eyes
'Cause I'm the taxman, yeah, I'm the taxman
And you're working for no one but me.

Needless to say, the Beatles were a band before their time.

Mr. Mayor didn't get his way this time :) Shame on you! Don't you know that "Management By Intimidation" and "Bullying" are tactics that qualify for the Chancellors Regulations against "Corporal Punishment?"
