DON'T PUT A TAX ON THE BEAUTIFUL GIRLS (Milton Ager / Jack Yellen) Eddie Cantor - 1919 Sophie Tucker & Her Five Kings Of Syncopation - 1919 Nicole Reynolds - 1969 Also recorded by: Ernest Thompson: Doc Williams. Taxes here and there, taxes everywhere Taxes every place that they could be Though i'm getting by, still I can't deny There's a tax I know would ruin me I wrote my congressman a note I said if you want my vote.... Don't put a tax on the beautiful girls How can I live without love You can tax my business and all that I own But have a little pity, leave my pleasure alone What'll I do on a beautiful night If I should happen to fall Suppose I'm about to kiss a beautiful maid And she discovers that my tax isn't paid Don't put a tax on the beautiful girls Or I won't have any lovin' at all Every cent I make, tax collectors take They don't leave me with a single dime Though I'll get along without wine or a song There's a tax I know would just be wrong It's not a luxury for me It's a great neccessity Don't put a tax on the beautiful girls How could I live without love You can tax my soda, I'll pay it somehow But don't you think the price of sugar's high enough now What'll I do on a beautiful night If I should happen to fall Suppose I run into the handsomest lady The tax collector comes He says, "I know you haven't paid me" Don't put a tax on the beautiful girls Or I won't have any lovin' at all (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - June 2011)
