Cat Attack

THE STORY BEHIND THE SONG

Living in a village in Croatia you don’t get much choice as to whether you want to be a cat owner or not. There are lots of strays and as soon as word gets around that there is a vacancy in your house, they have a secret meeting where they decide amongst themselves who is going to do you the honour of living with you. For a while, some cats living in the centre of the village declared a no-go zone for dogs and so any poor dog walking past would be attacked from all sides. With that in mind, I was walking to the beach one day when the title “Cat Attack” popped into my head. It wasn’t long before the song was finished and all the cats and dogs I ever knew made an appearance.

There’s a full moon rising, the dogs are howling
On the dark side of town, there’s something going down
A storm is brewing, resentment stewing
You better watch out
Someone’s gonna get hurt
someone’s gonna eat dirt
There’s gonna be a cat attack etc

It’s been a long time coming, those cats are cunning
They strike like lighting, very frightening
The dogs are fierce, but they come of worse
They better watch out
It’s time for a show down
Let’s all go down
There’s gonna be cat attack

There’s Cookie on the right side, Django on the left side
Jutko from behind, with trouble on his mind
The dogs are surrounded, they’re gonna get pounded
They better watch out
Sadie takes the first hit
But lucky gets the worst of it
It’s a cat attack

the show is over, that’s the end of Rover
He put up a good fight, but the claw beats the bite
Dogs should stay at home, by the fireside with a bone
They need to watch out
If at home they stay, they live to fight another day
In a cat attack
