Nugget Lyrics - Cake

Review The Song (2)



heads of state who ride and wrangle,
who look at your face from more than one angle,
can cut you from their bloated budgets
like sharpened knives through chicken mcNuggets.


now heads of state who ride and wrangle,
who look at your face from more than one angle,
can cut you from their bloated budgets
like sharpened knives through chicken mcNuggets.

shut the fuck up.
shut the fuck up.
right, right
learn to buck up.
shut the fuck up.
now, now
learn to buck up.

now nimble fingers that dance on numbers
sponsored links
will eat your children and steal your thunder,
while heavy torsos that heave and hurl
who crunch like nuts in the mouths of squirrels.

now nimble fingers that dance on numbers
will eat your children and steal your thunder,
while heavy torsos that heave and hurl
who crunch like nuts in the mouths of squirrels.


shut the fuck up.
shut the fuck up.
right now
learn to buck up.
shut the fuck up.
right, shut the fuck up
yeah, yeah
learn to buck up.

now simple feet that flicker like fire
and burn like candles in smoky spires
do more to turn my joy to sadness
than somber thoughts of burning planets.

now clever feet that flicker like fire
and burn like candles in smoky spires
do more to turn my joy to sadness
than somber thoughts of burning planets.

Nugget is clearly a cake classic for all the reasons Ryan listed, and more which are too awesome for me to even comprehend, let alone try to explain to you. Nonetheless, Cake keeps on proving why everyone loves Cake.



The Best. | Reviewer: ryan | 8/2/10

This song kicks ass on multiple levels. Initially, the intro and kick-in are almost unmatched in cool stoned swagger. The lyrics, specifically the first verse, are dotted with clever inflection and obviously characteristically restrained drollness of which John McCrea has no doubt several patents pending. The chorus is as badass as it is surprising: Shut the fuck up.

The outro is of course semi-legendary. This song merits triple thumbs up for trumpeter Vince DiFiore who escorts us rather unwillingly but expectantly out of the song. Resultant, the song remains one of CAKE's most snap-and-point suave pieces ever and would act a total function for introducing a movie. A really cool movie.
