    The first one has the Beatles paying taxes to the government and they accidentally hit one another in the head. Mainly it is Ringo's taxes as George sings the song "Taxman!" Then it is the sing a long in which the comic relief of Ringo booms the cannon with George and Ringo's hair missing as the latter bombs the apartment. Later, it is "Eleanor Rigby" in which the witch that the children say that is mean and hates children.
