Myxomatosis. (Judge, Jury & Executioner.)  Radiohead


These chords are not completely accurate, but the lyrics are accurate (according to the

album booklet, but Radiohead has a tendency to have different lyrics in their booklets,

don’t ask me why). These are based off of the GP version by RicardoRAVB and tweaked by me.

The original note pattern (for the verse) is as following:

||: G E F D E (first bar)

C B D C B C :|| (second bar)

My edited version is this:


[(Cadd9)] [(Dsus4)]  

The extra chords (Cadd9 and Dsus4) are optionnal and consist of ”fiddling” around with

the pinky on these notes:

C (major) Cadd9 D (major) Dsus4

|-0-| |-0-| |-2-||-3-|
|-1-||-3-| |-3-| |-3-|
|-0-| |-0-| |-2-| |-2-|
|-2-| |-2-| |-0-| |-0-|
|-3-| |-3-| |—| |—|
|—| |—| |—| |—|

***The note added with Cadd9 covers the ”B” that is replaced from the original

sequence. The ”G” added in Dsus4 is compeletely irrelevent, but i believe it has a

good ring

to it. As I said before, these notes are optionnal so I won’t put them in the tabs, but

I play them with every ”C” or ”D” in exeption of the chorus. Enough explinations for

now, here are the tabs:

Intro/Riff x4


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

C (whole chorus)

I don’t know why I feel so tongue-tied

Riff x2:


I sat in the cupboard

And wrote it down in neat

They were cheering and waving

Cheering and waving


Twitching and salivating like with myxomatosis

But it got ed-it-ed fucked up

Strangled beaten up

Used in a photo in time magazine


Buried in a burning black hole in devon

C (whole chorus)

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 arse but we all like stars


That wasn’t my intention, I did it for a reason

Original Audio Ending:

It must have got mixed up

Strangled beaten up

I got myxomatosis

I got myxomatosis

C (whole chorus)

I don’t know why I feel so tongue-tied

Outro/Riff x?


The original (non-acoustic) is a fade. I preffer to end it with a ”G” but it’s totally

up to you.

Booklet Ending:

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

***I have no idea how that last part is played, but you can have fun figuring it out***
