myxomatosis lyrics – radiohead

the mongrel cat came home
holding half a head
proceeded to show it off
to all his new found friends
he said i been where i liked
i slept with who i like
she ate me up for breakfast
she screwed me in a vice
but now
i don’t know why
i feel so tongue-tied
i sat in the cupboard
and wrote it down real neat
they were cheering and waving
cheering and waving
twitching and salivating like with myxomatosis
but it got edited f*cked up
strangled beaten up
used in a photo in time magazine
buried in a burning black hole in devon
i don’t know why i feel so tongue-tied
don’t know why
i feel
so skinned alive.
my thoughts are misguided and a little naive
i twitch and i salivate like with myxomatosis
you should put me in a home or you should put me down
i got myxomatosis
i got myxomatosis
yeah no one likes a smart *ss but we all like stars
but that wasn’t my intention, i did it for a reason
it must have got mixed up
strangled beaten up
i got myxomatosis
i got myxomatosis
i don’t know why i
feel so tongue-tied
