I pay my gardener to clean up my garden
I pay my doctor to check out da other ting
I pay my lawyer to fight for my rights
And I pay my bodyguard to guard my body
There's only one man I pay
But I don't know what I'm paying for
I'm talking about the taxman
I'm talking about the taxman
I'm talking about the taxman

What have you done for me lately
Mr Taxman
What have you done for me lately
Mr Taxman
What have you done for me lately
Mr Taxman
What have you done for me lately
Mr Taxman

You take from the rich, take from the poor
You even take from me, can't understand it now
I pay for the police to, err...I don't know why
'Cause if my dollar was good enough
There wouldn't be so much crime in the streets
They tell me you're a fat man
And you always take and never give

What have you done for me lately
Mr Taxman
