And the wise men say "I don't want to hear your voice."
And the thin men say "I don't want to hear your voice."
And they're cursing me, and they won't let me be.
And there's nothing to say, and there's nothing to do.

Stop whispering, start shouting,
Stop whispering, start shouting.

And my mother say "We spit on your son some more."
And the buildings say "We spit on your face some more."
And the feeling is that there's something wrong,
'Cause I can't find the words, and I can't find the songs.

Stop whispering, start shouting,
Stop whispering, start shouting.

Dear Sir, I have a complaint.
Dear Sir, I have a complaint,
Can't remember what it is,
Doesn't matter anyway.
Doesn't matter anyway.
Doesn't matter anyway
Doesn't matter anyway
Doesn't matter anyway
Doesn't matter anyway
Doesn't matter anyway
Doesn't matter anyway
Doesn't matter anyway
Doesn't matter anyway
Doesn't matter anyway

Stop whispering, start shouting,
Stop whispering, start shouting.

Song facts

"Stop Whispering" is a single from English alternative rock band Radiohead, released as the band's fourth single in 1993. It is the fourth track of their first album, Pablo Honey (1993). It reached #23 on the US Modern Rock Tracks chart.

The song was written as a tribute to the Pixies, a band that had an important influence over Radiohead at the time. "Stop Whispering" is also one of Radiohead's oldest songs; it was created when the band was still known as On A Friday, originally being on Dungeon Demo.

The promotional video, directed by Jeffery Plansker, features Thom Yorke then with platinum blond, shoulder-length hair and wearing a white suit. The video also shows Jonny Greenwood playing a Rickenbacker Guitar, as opposed to the Fender Telecaster which he is known for playing.
