“We move like cagey tigers
we couldn’t get closer than this
the way we walk
the way we talk
the way we stalk
the way we kiss

We slip through the streets
while everyone sleeps
getting bigger and sleeker
and wider and brighter
we bite and scratch and scream all night

Let’s go and throw
all the songs we know

Into the sea
you and me
all these years and no one heard
I’ll show you in spring
it’s a treacherous thing
we missed you hissed the lovecats
we missed you hissed the lovecats

We’re so wonderfully wonderfully wonderfully
wonderfully pretty!
Oh you know that I’d do anything for you
we should have each other to tea huh?
We should have each other with cream
then curl up by the fire
and sleep for awhile
it’s the grooviest thing
it’s the perfect dream

Into the sea, you and me
all these years and no one heard
I’ll show you in spring
it’s a treacherous thing
we missed you hissed the lovecats

We missed you hissed the lovecats
we missed you hissed the lovecats
we missed you hissed the lovecats
we missed you hissed the lovecats

We’re so wonderfully wonderfully wonderfully
wonderfully pretty!
You know that I’d do anything for you
we should have each other to dinner
we should have each other with cream
then curl up in the fire
get up for awhile
it’s the grooviest thing
it’s the perfect dream

Hand in hand
is the only way to land
and always the right way round
not broken in pieces
like hated little meeces
how could we miss
someone as dumb as this?

Missed you hissed the lovecats

I love you, let’s go
oh, solid gone
how could we miss
someone as dumb as this?”.

Citazioni.

The Love Cats (sometimes rendered as “The Lovecats“) is a song by English rock band The Cure, released as a stand-alone single in October 1983. It was the band’s first Top 10 hit in the UK, peaking at number 7. It also reached number 6 on the Australian chart in early 1984. The single later appeared on the compilation album Japanese Whispers, released in December 1983. At the time the song was written, Robert Smith was very interested in the work of Australian author Patrick White. According to a number of his fans, Smith was inspired to write “The Love Cats” after reading White’s novel The Vivisector (1970), although this claim is difficult to verify. In the novel, the protagonist, Hurtle, is appalled when his lover’s husband drowns a sack of stray cats. White draws a parallel between the way in which the cats are discarded, and the treatment of certain characters in the book; by extension, the cats symbolize the most innocent and vulnerable members of society, and the casual cruelty with which they sometimes meet their fate. The music video features a number of cats and a large lampshade falling on the head of bassist Phil Thornalley.
The Love Cats” has been covered by Luke Doucet, on his album Blood’s Too Rich; OK Go, on their Do What You Want EP; Tricky, on his album Vulnerable; Paul Anka, on his 2005 album of covers, Rock Swings; The Hot Rats, on their 2010 debut album Turn Ons; and The Sharp, on their EP Yeah I Want You. Jamie Cullum and Katie Melua also did a live cover of the song in 2007″.
