If John Lennon Were Alive Today, Would He Be OWS or Tea Party? Decide For Yourself.

A lot of people think of the Beatles and automatically associate them with the far left wing of politics. But if you really pay attention to their lyrics, it's not so clear. John Lennon wrote most of their songs and it would really irk Lefties to see these lyrics. Enjoy.

The Beatles 'Tax Man'

Let me tell you how it will be
There's one for you, nineteen for me
'Cause I'm the taxman, yeah, I'm the taxman

Should five per cent appear too small
Be thankful I don't take it all
'Cause I'm the taxman, yeah I'm the taxman

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.

Don't ask me what I want it for
If you don't want to pay some more
'Cause I'm the taxman, yeah, I'm the taxman

Now my advice for those who die
Declare the pennies on your eyes
'Cause I'm the taxman, yeah, I'm the taxman
And you're working for no one but me.
