Myxomatosis (Judge, Jury and Executioner)
by 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 liked
She ate me up for breakfast
She screwed me in a vice

And now
I don't know why I feel so tongue tied'
I sat in the cupboard
And wrote it down in neat
They were cheering & waving
Cheering and waving
Twitching and salivating
Like with myxomatosis

But it got edited, fucked up
Strangled, beaten up
Used as 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 salivate
Like with myxomatosis
You should put me in a home or you
Should put me down

I got myxomatosis
I got myxomatosis
Now no one likes a smart arse
But we all like stars
That wasn't my intention
I did it for a reason

He shook hands with the cripples and
He gave them all milk
He did a few card tricks
For his mafia geeks
But now
I don't know why I feel so tongue tied
