A A Asus4 Asus4 F#m F#m
Her green plastic watering can
Amaj7 Amaj7 Dsus2 Dsus2
For her fake Chinese rubber plant
A A D D Dsus2 Dsus2 D D Dsus2 Dsus2 D D
In the fake plastic earth
A A Asus4 Asus4 F#m F#m
That she bought from a rubber man
Amaj7 Amaj7 Dsus2 Dsus2
In a town full of rubber plans
A A D D Dsus2 Dsus2 D D Dsus2 Dsus2 D D
To get rid of itself

E7sus4 E7sus4 E7 E7 A A
It wears her out, it wears her out
E7sus4 E7sus4 E7 E7 A A
It wears her out, it wears her out

A A Asus4 Asus4 F#m F#m
She lives with a broken man
Amaj7 Amaj7 Dsus2 Dsus2
A A cracked polystyrene man
A A D D Dsus2 Dsus2 D D Dsus2 Dsus2 D D
Who just crumbles and burns
A A Asus4 Asus4 F#m F#m
He used to do surgery
Amaj7 Amaj7 Dsus2 Dsus2
For girls in the eighties
A A D D Dsus2 Dsus2 D D Dsus2 Dsus2 D D
But gravity always wins

E7sus4 E7sus4 E7 E7 A A
It wears him out, it wears him out
E7sus4 E7sus4 E7 E7 A A
It wears him out, it wears

A A Asus4 Asus4 F#m F#m
She looks like the real thing
Amaj7 Amaj7 Dsus2 Dsus2
She tastes like the real thing
A A D D Dsus2 Dsus2 D D Dsus2 Dsus2 D D
My fake plastic love
A A Asus4 Asus4 F#m F#m
But I can't help the feeling
Dsus2 Dsus2 D D
I could blow through the ceiling
A A D D Dsus2 Dsus2 D D Dsus2 Dsus2 D D
If I just turn and run

E7sus4 E7sus4 E7 E7 A A
It wears me out, it wears me out
E7sus4 E7sus4 E7 E7 A A
It wears me out, it wears

E7sus4 E7sus4 E7 E7
If I could be who you wanted
A A Bm6 Bm6 E7 E7
If I could be who you wanted all the time

A A
All the time...
D D Dsus2 Dsus2 D D Dsus2 Dsus2 D D A A
All the time...

About this song

According to singer Thom Yorke, the song was recorded as the band had just been to see Jeff Buckley play a set at The Garage in London and when they got back into the studio, Yorke recorded the vocals in one take and broke down in tears at the end. The song's lyrics are about Canary Wharf in London and about the world of mass marketing and mass consumption. One source of frustration for the band at the time was their US record label, Capitol, who wanted a strong track for American radio to follow the success of their previous hit single, "Creep".
