Mofo Lyrics

Found On:


Mofo (1997)


The Best Of 1990-2000 (2002)


The Complete U2 (2004)

Note: U2 has released different versions of most singles in different countries. We are not showing every cover image in this space, just one that's representative of each release.

"Mofo" (Phunk Phorce mix)

"It was as if my whole life was in that song. Electronic blues death rattle. It takes the cliché insult 'motherfucker' and turns it into something raw and confessional. It went through some bizarre titles. 'Mothership,' 'Oedipussy.' It contains the most exposed moment in the hardest song on the record. It was extraordinary playing 'Mofo' live. The song would come to a shuddering halt and there I was, just speaking to my mother in front of fifty thousand of my closest friends. Some nights it would really surprise me what an emotional place I would get to." - Bono, U2 By U2 2006

Lookin' for to save my, save my soul
Been around front, been around back
Lookin' in the places where no flowers grow
Been around front, been around back
Lookin' for to fill that God shaped hole
Been around front, been around back
Mother, mother rock and roll
Been around front, been around back
Mother

Holy dunc, spacejunk staring into the flash
Been around front, been around back
White dopes on punk staring into the flash
Been around front, been around back
Lookin' for the baby Jesus under the trash
Been around front, been around back
Mother, mother rock and roll
Been around front, been around back
Mother
Mother, mother rock and roll
Been around front, been around back
Mother
Been around front, been around back

Giving his soul for gold
Giving his soul for gold
Giving his soul for gold
Giving his soul for gold

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
Mother

Lookin' for a sound that's gonna drown out the world
Been around front, been around back
I'm lookin' for the father of my two little girls
Been around front, been around back
They superchase moon boogie motorcade
Been around front, been around back
I'm still looking for the face I had before the world was made
Been around front, been around back
Mother, mother rock and roll
Been around front, been around back
Mother
Mother, mother rock and roll
Been around front, been around back
Mother
Mother, mother rock and roll
Been around front, been around back
Mother
Mother, mother rock and roll
Been around front, been around back
Mother
Mother, mother rock and roll
Been around front, been around back
Mother
Been around front, been around back

Giving his soul for gold
Giving his soul for gold
Giving his soul for gold
Giving his soul for gold
Giving his soul for gold
Giving his soul for gold
Giving his soul for gold
Giving his soul for gold

Mother, mother rock and roll
Been around front, been around back
Mother
Mother, mother rock and roll
Been around front, been around back
Mother

Been around front, been around back
Mother
