DT Lyrics:

Subject: happy? – Jan 9 (Income tax)
From: Abby Sale
Date: 09 Jan 06 - 08:54 AM

One of Britain's great inventions,
the 1st income tax was introduced on 1/9/1799

        Oh what wonders what novels in this age there be,
        And the man that lives longest the most he will see;
        For fifty years back, pray what man would have thought,
        That a tax upon income would be brought
            Sing, tantara rara new tax.

                "The Income Tax," (a broadside) A Ballad History of England, Roy Palmer
