Time to reminsce with this tune throbbing in the background.
This song makes drinking an ice cold beer in the summer taste even better.
Another litmus test song - wrong or right, I just couldn't be friends with a person who dislikes this song.
I'm the taxman.
Love the kinks....... . . .
Haha "everybody party till the taxman comes" Even MCR knows this song
Couldn't you just hear My Morning Jacket doing this one? The more I hear the Kinks their influence on todays groups becomes even more pronounced and relevant.
George H.? Ha ha... 'cause I'm the taxman...
One of the best song. Makes me remove my weaknesses (:
A classic Kinks song, timeless
I just love this song.

Don't read this because it really works. You will be kissed by the love of your life on the nearest possible Friday. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. But if you don't post this you die in two days. Now you have started reading so don't stop. Put this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lovers name will come on the screen in big letters this is scary because it works! Don't read this because it really work
I love this song so much <3

One of the all time great bands.
Love the lyrics. Real characters. Nothing like it today
Luv it. Takes me back.
witty and mellow. good tune.
Until a short time ago, I always thought the was a Beatles song. It's a great tune.
This just showed up on a station seeded with The Damned, and The Jam, not that I'm complaining mind you.
Never really listened to these lyrics before.

"Now I'm sitting here sipping at my ice cold beer lazing on a sunny afternoon"

Nothin' better than that first ice cold beer on a hot summer day! I'm thirsty now...
Lay around in the summertime drinking fuzzy drinks and watching fatbottomed girls ridding bikes. Now thats the life.
