Mofo Lyrics

Found On:


PopMart Live From Mexico City (1998)


Hasta La Vista, Baby! Live From Mexico City (2000)


Love U2 (2006)

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" (live from Mexico City)

"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

Mexico mofo
Mexicofo
Mexico
Mofo, mofo
Mofo, mofo
What's going on, oh yeah, alright here it comes
Mofo, mofo
Kiss it up

Lookin' for to save my, save my soul
I'm lookin' in the places where no flowers grow
I'm lookin' for to fill that God-shaped hole
Mother, mother suckin' rock and roll
Mother poppin' sugar shoppin' rock and roll

Holy dunk, space junk comin' in for the splash
Been around back, been around front
White dopes on punk staring into the flash
Been around back, been around front
Lookin' for my baby Jesus under the trash
Been around back, been around front
Mother, mother suckin' rock and roll
Mother poppin' sugar shoppin' rock and roll

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
Tell me no, tell me no
No, no, no, no, no

I'm looking for a sound to drown out the world
I'm looking for the father of my two little girls

Soothe me sister
Move me brother
Soothe me sister
Move me brother
Move me a mountain
Move me a mountain
Move me a mountain
Move me a mountain
Move me a mountain, love
