Foo Fighters - Darling Nikki Lyrics




I knew a girl named Nikki
I guess you could say she was a sex fiend
I met her in a hotel lobby
Masturbating with a magazine
She said how'd u like to waste some time
And I could not resist when I saw little Nikki grind

She took me to her castle
And I just couldn't believe my eyes
She had so many devices
Everything that money could buy
She said sign your name on the dotted line
The lights went out
And Nikki started to grind

Aaah Nikki!!!

The castle started spinning
Or maybe it was my brain
I can't tell u what she did to me
But my body will never be the same
Her lovin' will kick your behind
Oh, she'll show u no mercy
But she'll sho'nuff sho'nuff show u how to grind

Woke up the next morning
Nikki wasn't there
I looked all over and all I found
Was a phone number on the stairs
It said thank u for a funky time
Call me up whenever u want to grind

Oh, Nikki, ohhhh!!!
Come back Nikki, come back!!!

Foo Fighters Darling Nikki Comments
  1. Max Jackson

    Im never impressed with covers but this one always rocked. They didn't try to rewrite it the just paid homage.

  2. UnTipoSinNombre

    I could listen this "hidden" song on 2003 because I bought the One by One album. So satisfying...

  3. anja june

    Different style..so no point of comparing, but one thing this version makes me appreciate is how Prince really had this rich compositional touch, like he managed to bring so many layers out of one texture and create such vivid patterns with them..it gave a sense of rhythm, space, anticipation and resolve..it could be small and tender in one, funny in the next and fiery and powerful in the next sec. Not linear or like a flood of sound just cascading towards you like a lava. I think his style was so communicatative, kept you curious about where is he taking this and how..i guess in a way his musicality spoke about how layered his intelligence and imagination were. This version just makes me feel the difference and appreciate his skill that speaks to me more than someone elses i guess..

  5. Eric Parrish

    Been looking for this one! The Fook Fighters lmao. Good one

  6. Elizabeth Gowers

    I've been looking all over for this!! Thanks for posting it!

  7. endorphinz

    When this song first came out and was getting played on radio stations, a younger listener called up and requested to hear "Darling Nikki"...the DJ asked him which one, the one by the Foo Fighters or the original by Prince? The listener said, "Prince did this song as well?"

    I heard that story and wept for the musical soul of today's yoots lol...

  8. Destro 29

    Dave grohl and the foos can do no wrong change my mind

  9. Chasing The Wild Smith

    🔥🔥

  10. Nude_boy Gaming

    Still tryna figure out why these song is harder to find the knights templars lost treasures

  11. Blake Colden

    I love the prince version and I never even knew ff did this, btw I'm 16 and have the best taste of music in the generation of teens

  12. Bert Fechner

    Can't believe I finally found this, I was seriously starting to think I just imagined this.

  13. Tarn Arn

    Once upon a time not long ago I condemned my FF for ruining this song. Later I have to that this is a good cover. See? I changed my mind.😊

  14. Nikki Cooper

    Just a heads up to the guys who ask every female named Nikki if we’ve heard this song...we’ve heard it.

  15. Alex Gray

    One of my favorite songs to drum to

  16. Jaysun Hittner

    i think they did justice to this song, saw prince in my teens and bet he liked it too

  17. The Real Wilfred Dierkes

    Goddamn. There is a God. 🤘🏻

  18. Climb Pissis

    My favorite band covering my favorite artist. Thank U

  19. Timothy Haskell

    I was sceptical for the first few lines, but then they caught traction and really took off.

    Good job.

  20. Nikita G

    I'm called Nikki. This is so relatable

    Jonathan

    Nikita G do me on it

  21. Travis Padilla

    Fuck!!! That was a good cover song

  22. Keith Harris

    The steak is medium rare even tho it hasn't touched by heat. The only way a steak gets like that is if the Foo Fighters cover a song and they fuckin nail it.

  23. Ericeasy Smith

    Thank god!!!!!! Finally here!! Best cover they have ever done!!!!

  24. 10000fuckers

    My name's Nikki Fuckin Lee!!!

  25. Patrick x

    Today I learned that Prince opened for the rolling stones and got chased off the stage by people throwing garbage 2 nights in a row. All I know is masturbating with a magazine is an awesome lyric.

  26. Arianne Wingard

    Thank You for posting this song

  27. Pretzelberger

    The Foo Fighters are OK-ish. But this legendary song is way beyond their talents - particularly on the vocal front.

    Terry Hesticles

    Definitely.

  28. Vanessa E

    Wish this was in iTunes!

  29. Tosa Coem

    Why no Double kick at the end? I listen to the entire song Waiting for that part

  30. Gr33nbayfreak187

    Remember listening to this on the radio and loving it when I was in 4th grade and didn't know what it was about until I got older I understood the lyrics hahaha😂😂😂

    Melisa Valenzuela

    Gr33nbayfreak187 same!!!!! Lmao

    1993

    yalls parents r deadbeats

  31. Mike Gardner

    I was raised on prince sabbath and zep this rules

  32. Zedumreb666

    One more time this is AWESOME

  33. Zedumreb666

    I fucking absolutely love this song/prince/the foo my life now has meaning so awesome

  34. Mahlka Rose

    Yes! I finally found it! I fucking LOVE this version! I like Prince's version too (yes, I know that's the original version) but I just fucking LOVE this version!

  35. Tony Lodato II

    And this song is why Prince did FF’s hero in his super bowl show. Without asking Foo’s permission. Of course, they were super stoked with his interpretation of revenge.

    Daryl Tillman

    WOW... I did not know that.

    composerdave68

    Prince covered Best of You at the Superbowl. The word is Prince wasn't happy with the Foos cover of Darling Nikki and wouldn't let them release it. Then he did Best of You at the Superbowl

    Jonathan Campos

    @composerdave68 so a hypocrite? Lol jokes on him

    emagdnim128

    Jonathan Campos Prince’s tour manager has said in interviews that Prince loved the cover and said “the Foos are the only rock band that could do me justice”

    Jonathan Campos

    @emagdnim128 okay, I'm still not going to say prince was a good guy and the guy was an asshole. I mean there's no point in sainting the Dead but I guess that's cool that he like the Foo Fighters cover of it. But at the end of the day he was very talented and good at what he did

  36. Marcus Yancey

    Who let these people ruin this song this sounds so unseasoned and has no soul to it

    Jonathan

    Marcus Yancey you don’t know shit

    Eric Parrish

    Its Fookin awesome, shut up

    Smitty Games

    They didn't ruin the song. You can go listen to Prince's version any time you want

  37. T BYRD

    Sounds good!

  38. selirodz

    FF did this song justice! They conveyed the same feelings as Prince

  39. Stacey C

    So...Prince is God...no question.
    FF really did this song justice!

    HENDRIX

    He's not a human.

    Syrrhas

    PRINCE GOD OF MUSIC !!!

  40. John Lane

  47. richard cranium

    YES! This song was finally posted up again!

  48. Durango Distler

    I hate myself so much, I love this cover more than life itself, but I can’t bear to listen to it, not bc of the lyrical content, it’s artistic and I love it, but bc I Stand hear Grohl sing or say anything blatantly sexual. Idk what’s wrong with meeeee. He’s just too pure in my mind..... FUCK i hate this.

    Durango Distler

    Quentin M I just spent 6 minutes laughing my ass off. Thanks😂

    Mofu

    Dude... he was in Nirvana... More than once he said how much drugs he was on. As if he was pure dude

    Emilio Montes de Oca González

    So you shouldn't watch Shake Your Blood's video, the one with Lemmy

    Emilio Montes de Oca González

    Also... You couldn't hear One By One at all.

    Michelle madonia

    @Mofu I thinks she's means the Blatantly raw sexuality of it lol it's hard for me too I get it

  49. Sadie DeVille

    A hicky from Nikki is like a hallmark card.

    Nikki Cooper

    Sadie DeVille Well now I have to go watch Grease

  50. Rabbit Trooper

    Everybody is saying its hard to find. I dont doubt it, its just funny because ive had this song on a cd of mine since high school. I just randomly looked it up on YouTube, and realize Prince was the original singer. I like Foo Fighters better though.

  51. Dollree Mappmmk

    DC 101 use to play it,so many years ago.....when it came out...that's how I found it and demanded that they play it or have it available for me to play it at The Huddle Club and Opequan Hill Lounge. ✌️❤️😊

  52. Dollree Mappmmk

    THIS..,when it came out.....OMG,YES,and I made SO much money because of this song ....... 😊❤️✌️

    migger milazzo

    "talented"???? he WAS music - even and special on guitar

    spyderj

    This was made right before his Super Bowl half time show. That's why he included the Foo Fighters song during his performance.
