Print Lyrics


Can't get the stink off
He's been hanging 'round for days [1]
Comes like a comet
Suckered you but not your friends
One day he'll get to you
And teach you how to be a holy cow

You do it to yourself, you do
And that's what really hurts is
You do it to yourself, just you
You and no-one else
You do it to yourself...
You do it to yourself...

Don't get my sympathy
Hanging out the 15th floor
You've changed the locks three times
He still comes reeling through the door
One day I'll get to you
And teach you how to get to purest hell

You do it to yourself, you do
And that's what really hurts is
You do it to yourself, just you
You and no-one else
You do it to yourself...
You do it to yourself...

You do it to yourself, you do
And that's what really hurts is
You do it to yourself, just you
You and no-one else
You do it to yourself...
You do it to yourself... [2]

Oasis Heart3's Notes:
[!!] According to Wikipedia, Thom Yorke wrote these lyrics about a narcissistic, freeloading friend of his.

[1] When Kana sings this line, it sounds like she says "He's been hanging out for days". I'm not sure if she mispronounced it, or if she sang it wrong all together.

[2] After this line is sung, both Thom Yorke (the lead vocalist for Radiohead) and Kana ad-lib a bit, but they say different things:

  • Radiohead's Version: the word "yourself..." is sung again.
  • I-lulu's Version: the line "you do it to yourself" is repeated.
