You work hard, you make money
There ain't no one in this world who can stop you
You work hard, you went hungry
Now, the taxman is out to get you

You worked hard
And you slaved and slaved for years
Break your back, sweat a lot
Well, it's just not fair

He hates you, he loves money
And he'll steal your shit and think it is funny
Like the Beatles, even Dylan
Now, the taxman is out to get you

You worked hard
And you slaved, and slaved for years
You played and you played
And played for years

Taxman, Mr. Heath
He's looking for a run-in, yeah
Taxman, Mr. Heath
He's looking for a run-in
A run-in, yeah, yeah

Taxman, Mr. Heath
He's looking for a run-in, yeah
Taxman, he is a thief
He's looking for a run-in
A run-in, yeah, yeah

You work hard, you make money
There ain't no one in this world who can stop you
You work hard, you went hungry
Now, the taxman is out to get you

You worked hard
And you slaved, and slaved for years
Break your back, sweat a lot
Well, it's just not fair

Taxman, Mr. Heath
He's looking for a run-in, yeah
Taxman, he's a thief
He's looking for a run-in
A run-in, yeah, yeah
