Mofo Lyrics

Found On:


Mofo (1997)


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" (Romin 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
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 hopping sugar popping dropping rock and roll

Mother, mother, mother
Mother, mother, mother
Mother, mother, mother

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
Been around back, been around back
Lookin' for the father of my two little girls
Been around back, been around back
Got the swing, got the sway, got my straw in lemonade
Been around back, been around back
Still looking for the face I had before the world was made
Been around back, been around back
Mother, mother sucking rock and roll
Bubble poppin', sugar droppin' rock and roll
Mother sucking

Mother, mother, mother
Mother, mother, mother
Mother, mother, mother
Mother, mother, mother

Woo me sister
Soothe me mother
Prove me father
Move me brother
Woo me sister
Soothe me mother
Prove me father
Move me brother
