Radiohead Lyrics

A Punchup at a Wedding

No no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no
I don’t know why you bother
Nothing’s ever good enough for you
I was there and it wasn’t like that
You came here just to start a fight

You had to piss on our parade
You had to shred our big day
You had to ruin it for all concerned
In a drunken punchup at a wedding.

Hypocrite opportunist
Don’t infect me with your poison
A bully in a china shop
When I turn round stay frozen to the spot.

You had to piss on our parade
Uou had to shred our big day
You had to ruin it for all concerned
In a drunken punchup at a wedding.

The pointless snide remarks
Of hammer-headed sharks
The pot will call the kettle black

It’s a drunken punchup at a wedding.

No no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no

 

SONG INFORMATION

Released: June 2003
Found on: Hail to the Thief

This song was premiered in Lisbon, Portugal on July 22, 2002. On Thom’s lyric sheet he used for one of the concerts, the following “verse” was added at the end of the song but was never sung:

Go ahead the stage is yours.
if you think you can do better
you used to be alright, what-happened?
keep moving or you r dead. keep moving or you r dead.
how i wish you’d stay out of my face.
there’s always someone spoils the party
just you wait till your chained down
worried and unhinged
you have really gone and done it now
just a trick to make you stupid
all these sad heroics
let me tell you how it really is
we are here to spoil your party
empty vessels make the most noise
survival of the fittest
wading through the marshes
hypocrits, opportunists,
userers flatterers and thiefs.
im sick of all your bullshit.
im sick of all these fucking mindgames.
who invited you anyway?

The alternative title is “No No No No No No No No”

    I have loved this song for years, and although I have visited this site for over a decade now (approx.), I never read the additional lyrics posted after the official lyrics until tonight. I can’t express how much they resonate with me, or how much they add to the song. I wish they would have included them in the song.
