Lyrics

Cuckoo! Cuckoo! Cuckoo! Cuckoo!
Cuckoo! Cuckoo! Cuckoo! Cuckoo!

Ten silver spoons coming after me
One life with one dream on repeat
I'll escape if I try hard enough
'Til King of the Jungle calls my bluff

Oh Lord (Oh Lord), I have been told
(I have been told)
That I must take the unforsaken road
(Forsaken road)

There's a fork in the road
I'll do as I am told
And I don't know, don't know, don't know
Don't know who, oh oh ooh, I wanna be

Cuckoo! Cuckoo! Cuckoo! Cuckoo!
Cuckoo! Cuckoo! Cuckoo! Cuckoo!

You say Y-E-S to everything
Will that guarantee you a win?
Do you think you will be good enough
To love others and to be l-l-l-l-loved?

Oh Lord (Oh Lord), now I can see
(Now I can see, now I can see)
The cutlery will keep on chasing me
(Forsaken road)

There's a fork in the road
I'll do as I am told
And I don't know, don't know, don't know
Don't know who, oh oh ooh, I wanna be

We are the spoons, metal-ly mean
We scooped our way into your dreams
To knock your knives out bloody cold
And lead you down the unforsaken road

(Forsaken road)

There's a fork in the road
I'll do as I am told
And I don't know, don't know, don't know
Don't know who, oh oh ooh, I wanna be

Cuckoo!
