Faith No More - Cuckoo For Caca Lyrics




It's cold and it's
Smooth and it's
A hard shade of white
And everybody needs to lick the surface clean
But it never tastes better

White blooms to white and freezes white again
Close it before something crawls in
Commit it, leave it, get away - we always
Drop our good side

Being good gets you stuff
Being stuff gets you good
Good stuf gets you being
And wheelin' and dealin' and squealin'
Shit lives forever

They have no legs, but chase us anyway
Wipe the shadow of your best friend
Gave birth to something we don't want to be
We drop our good side

You can't kill it

Eat is just as deep as you can fuck it
So cough it up or go down
And there's only one thing that separates
A man...

Shit lives forever

We'll retire with a turd on our lips
Under a pair of knowing eyes
I'm gonna take a few down with me
And drop my good side

You can't kill it

Take it from our drummer, "Puff"
Being good it gets you stuff

Faith No More Cuckoo For Caca Comments
  1. David Legus

    This is my favourite FNM album. Not a bad track on here imo

  2. Eighth circle Of hell

    Almost as heavy as nickleback

  3. ericsaguirre

    So fucking creative. This record is my favorite action movie ever.

  4. LBJFKKK LBJFKKK

    This song is the long lost brother of "Pills For Breakfast"

  5. David Bray

    Nutrients fertilize forever!

  6. Lexington Deville84

    Patton’s screams on this sound genuinely disturbing - which shows how versatile he is as a vocalist.

  7. Robin Mask

    It's cold and it's
    Smooth and it's
    A hard shade of white
    And everybody needs to lick the surface clean
    But it never tastes better

    White blooms to white and freezes white again
    Close it before something crawls in
    Commit it, leave it, get away - we always
    Drop our good side

    Being good gets you stuff
    Being stuff gets you good
    Good stuf gets you being
    And wheelin' and dealin' and squealin'
    Shit lives forever

    They have no legs, but chase us anyway
    Wipe the shadow of your best friend
    Gave birth to something we don't want to be
    We drop our good side

    You can't kill it

    Eat is just as deep as you can fuck it
    So cough it up or go down
    And there's only one thing that separates
    A man...

    Shit lives forever

    We'll retire with a turd on our lips
    Under a pair of knowing eyes
    I'm gonna take a few down with me
    And drop my good side

    You can't kill it

    Take it from our drummer, "Puff"
    Being good it gets you stuff

  8. Lewis ito

    I really dig Trey Spruance's work on this album, especially this song. Any other guitar players similar to his style? Who are his influences? This riff makes me want to dig ditches and change the oil in my car.

    Drags me Down

    It's a favourite moment of mine too!!

    Owen Hofer

  57. Cara muito loko vey

  58. Ari Arnalds

    This brings back da memories! Summer 95 was da bomb! All da girls hated da song...


    And I was mentaly abused by my spiritual father of the Lord of Dominaton. THOU SHALL FOLLOW MY ORDERS- MOLOG BAR


    I sacrificed a lamb for the mercy of Bolog Mar! He shall rule this sinful pityful fragile mortalious earth!

  59. KKsHaDoWx

  72. Theodorus Rex

    this album is way ahead of it's time... much like Angel Dust.

    nonpoint666rocks

    @M Lee I don't think much people are aware of that.

    Ethan Peterson

    @M Lee this album doesn't have heavy middle eastern theory

    M Lee

    Ethan Peterson where did I imply that it did? In fact what has what you said got anything to do with my point? SOAD don’t have heavy Middle Eastern theory in all of their music anyway. I have been playing guitar and piano for more than ten years.

    Ethan Peterson

    @M Lee wow, you've never listened through a whole soad album, and don't lie and say you have

  73. Theodorus Rex

    they have no legs, but chase us anyway
    wipe the shadow of your best friend
    gave birth to something we don't want to be
    we drop our good side - fabulous!

  74. Jaime Bustos Aguilera

  83. Ewan Mookhoek

    Can anyone recommend some Faith No More songs like this? I just love it when Mike Patton gets batshit crazy!

    Theodore David Mooney

    Second on the "Angel Dust" suggestion though to narrow it down to Caffeine, Malpractice & Jizzlobber...

    sukadikandi

    Disco Volante is Patton at his best

    Eg, Egg n' Eggy

    @duhmez 1991

    Pablo Rogers

  94. NIMRODakaNIMROD

    Ahh, good ol' Faith No More – New Album in May! I'm fuckin excited! Of all those 90s band reunions in the last five years or so – like "Seattle-alumni" Soundgarden and Alice in Chains (Fortunately Pearl Jam was never really gone in the first place!) – Faith No More was the one I felt the most euphoric about!

  95. whitsterc3

    That boy just ain't right. Pretty awesome

  96. Nephew Eplus

    Rock sucks. Convert to gangsta rap, y`all.

    Dexenation Gracey

    @***** Weird that he picked to say that on a Faith No More vid. They're a rather underground band compared to their contemporaries.

    WeWantYouToStay

    Mike Patton raps

    But it's the current year Jim!

    Funny joke

    King Kong Ding Dong

    Nephew Eplus ur vids sucks, convert to good content

  97. rhorschack

    I can only agree.

  98. Roberto Salvatierra

    great song
