Share The Fake Plastic Trees Chords and Strumming:

Did You Know? Fake Plastic Trees was the US the follow up single to Creep. Radiohead singer Thom York described the song as 'The product of a joke that wasn't really a joke, a very lonely, drunken evening and, a breakdown of sorts'. It began with a melody that he had no idea what to do with and he decided not to force the song in any directly but to go with whatever was in his head at the time.

Fake Plastic Trees Videos

Fake Plastic Trees Videos


Her green plastic watering can
For her fake Chinese rubber plant
In the fake plastic earth


That she bought from a rubber man
In a town full of rubber plans
To get rid of itself


It wears her out
It wears her out
It wears her out
It wears her out


She lives with a broken man
A cracked polystyrene man
Who just crumbles and burns


He used to do surgery
For girls in the eighties
But gravity always wins


And it wears him out
It wears him out
It wears him out
It wears


She looks like the real thing
She tastes like the real thing
My fake plastic love


But I can't help the feeling
I could blow through the ceiling
If I just turn and run


And it wears me out
It wears me out
It wears me out
It wears me out
And if I could be who you wanted
If I could be who you wanted
All the time
All the time
