Cuckoo

Album: Trespassing (2012)

Songfacts®:

  • Lambert teams up with Bonnie McKee on this floor-filler on which the American Idol alumni sings of going "cuckoo" and partying "'til they take us away." McKee is best known for her collaborations with Katy Perry; she co-wrote many of the Californian star's hit singles, including "California Gurls," "Teenage Dream," "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)" and "Part Of Me."
  • The song features a double dose of the F-word, making it the least radio-friendly track on Trespassing.
