mowgli’s road lyrics – marina & the diamonds

“mowgli’s road”

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,
’till king of the jungle calls my bluff

oh lord (oh lord)
i have been sold (i have been sold)
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, don’t
who-oo-oo-oo-ooo i want to be

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 loved?

oh lord (oh lord),
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-oo-oo-oo-ooo i want to be.

we are the spoons metally mean.
we scooped our way into your dreams
to knock the knives out bl**dy cold.
and lead you down the unforsaken road.

[whistle]

(forsaken road)
there’s a fork in the road (road)
i’ll do as i am told
and i don’t know, don’t know, don’t know, don’t know
who-oo-oo-oo-ooo i want to be.

cuckoo
