Radiohead Lyrics

How Do You?

He’s bitter and twisted, he knows what he wants.
He wants to be loved and he wants to belong.
He wants you to listen, he wants us to weep.
And he was a stupid baby who turned into a powerful freak.

But how do you?
How do you?
How do you?

He lives with his mother, but we show him respect.
He’s a dangerous bigot, but we always forget.
And he’s just like his daddy, ’cause he cheats on his friends.
And he steals and he bullies, any way that he can.

But how do you?
How do you?
How do you?

 

SONG INFORMATION

Released: February 1993
Found on: Pablo Honey

An in-yer-face song from the debut album, “How Do You?” was part of the band’s live set during 1993. The number seems to be directed at an enemy, though the band hasn’t offered a specific explanation. Listen closely to the guitar solo and you’ll hear a sample from the Jerky Boys’ “Pablo Honey,” which would have been taken from bootleg tapes.
