MOFO : what's Edge singing ?
« on: May 06, 2019, 05:17:20 AM »
I can't understand what Edge is singing between those lines :

Holy dunc spacejunk comin' in for the splash
White dopes on punk staring into the flash
Lookin' for baby Jesus under the trash

Anyone can help ?

Thanks.
A dangerous idea that almost makes sense...

A few suggestions

We don't run back
We don't wanna back
See through in the sunlight

Holy dunc, spacejunk comin' in for the splash
Been around back, been around front
White dopes on punk staring into the flash
Been around back, been around front
Lookin' for baby Jesus under the trash
Been around back, been around front

I always heard "little red dress" in there somewhere, but someone once said it's "little red vette".

The mother of my Kids used to think (as this question was raised many moons ago by her) that Edge was singing "Little Red Dress....Little Red bow"

That's a good one. I might adjust the lyric sheet in my head to this one.

I like "little red dress" better than "little red vette". But I don't know about "bow"...I've got to listen again...oh, the torture of having to listen again. hahaha

Maybe your post has been overlooked here - but as i understand it you are correct...

"Been around back, been around front"

Seems to be the answer.
Since 1995.....

That's what my current internal lyric sheet uses. But @u2 lyrics, while an absolute treasure of a resource, is not 100% accurate. I think it's honestly nigh on impossible to make out the lyric for sure.

Wow. I have no idea what this means. Seriously.

Iíll ask Edge next time I see him (probably never).
