“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”

As you all know, these are part of the lyrics to The Beatles’ song “Taxman”.

On March 19, 1964, British Prime Minister Harold Wilson, yes the same one they would sing about in “Taxman”, presented The Beatles with the award for being “Show Business Personalities of 1963” at the Variety Club of Great Britain Annual Show Business Awards.

In 1964, the lads didn’t have quite the tax issues they would in the next few years.

Here is a picture of the lads with Mr. Wilson.
