IF THEY EVER PUT A TAX ON LOVE (Music: Nat Osborne / Lyrics: Sam Erlich) Henry Lewis - 1918 Prince's Band - 1918 Mister William Brown hadn't been to town And his sweetheart wondered why For she longed to see a play Or to dance 'round at a cabaret She called him on the telephone And said, "I hate to be alone" So Mister Brown came in to town And gave her this reply There's a tax on sugar And there's a little tax on honey Why, they even tax your money It seems so funny when they tax your honey and your money too There's a tax on letters, soon there'll be a tax on stars above Broadway farmers will be out of place 'Cause there'll be no chickens there to chase Goodbye forever, if they ever put a tax on love Mister William Brown has to stay in town 'Cause he married her one night He said the safest plan Is to be a happy married man So after things had run their course She sued him for a quick divorce Now Mister Brown stays out of town And writes her when he can There's a tax on sugar And there's a little tax on honey Why, they even tax your money It seems so funny when they tax your honey and your money too There's a tax on letters, soon there'll be a tax on stars above All old maids who never had a chance Would grab onto anything in pants Goodbye forever, if they ever put a tax on love (Contributed by Mel Priddle - June 2011)
