May 23



She said I’m sorry baby I’m leaving you tonight

I found someone new he’s waitin’ in the car outside

Ah honey how could you do it

We swore each other everlasting love

She said well yeah I know but when

We did–there was one thing we weren’t

Really thinking of and that’s money–

~Cindi Lauper, “Money Changes Everything” (1983)



(If you drive a car, car) – I’ll tax the street;

(If you try to sit, sit) – I’ll tax your seat;

(If you get too cold, cold) – I’ll tax the heat;

(If you take a walk, walk) – I’ll tax your feet.

Now my advice for those who die, (taxman)

Declare the pennies on your eyes. (taxman)

‘Cause I’m the taxman,

Yeah, I’m the taxman.

~George Harrison, The Beatles, “Taxman,” Revolver (1966)
