 When you are in this prison

Of the body

Beware of the Taxman


It’s not “There is one for you, and nineteen for me”

He will “take it all”

Awaits patiently the Taxman


Your service begins at birth

You pay with your ailment, fear and sorrow

Mail comes from the Taxman


He is the Sovereign

You are the subject living in false premise

There is the Taxman


Your heat of life will inevitably dim

“The pennies on your eyes” will stare

Will you see the Taxman?


This is His system

If His advices are kept

Happy is the Taxman
