Mofo

  • Lookin' for to save my save my soul
    Lookin' in the places where no flowers grow
    Lookin' for to fill that God shaped hole
    Mother
    Mother sucking rock and roll

    Holy dunc spacejunk comin' in for the splash
    White dopes on punk staring into the flash
    Lookin' for baby Jesus under the trash

    Mother
    Mother sucking rock and roll
    Mother
    Mother sucking rock and rock and rock and roll
    Mother (mother, mother, mother, mother)
    Mother

    Mother am I still your son
    You know I've waited for so long to hear you say so
    Mother you left and made me someone
    Now I'm still a child
    But no one tells me no

    Lookin' for a sound that's gonna drown out the world
    Lookin' for the father of my two little girls
    Got the swing got the sway got my straw in lemonade
    Still looking for the face I had before the world was made

    Mother
    Mother sucking rock and roll
    Bubble poppin' sugar droppin' rock and roll
    Mother
    Mother
    Mother
    Mother
    Mother
    Mother
    Mother
    Mother

    Soothe me mother
    Rule me father
    Move me brother
    Woo me sister
    Soothe me mother
    Rule me father
    Show me mother
    Show me mother
    Show me mother
    Show me mother
    Show me mother
    Show me mother Writer/s: ADAM CLAYTON, DAVE EVANS, LARRY MULLEN, PAUL HEWSON
