An Cat Dubh
by U2

  • Say goodnight
    She waits for me to
    Put out the lights
    When I'm still
    She waits to break my will (oh oh oh oh)

    Yes, and I know the truth about you, she cat

    And in the daylight
    A blackbird makes a violent sight
    And when she is done
    She sleeps beside the one (oh oh oh oh)

    Yes, and I know the truth about you, she cat

    Yes, and I know the truth about you, she cat Writer/s: Adam Clayton, David Evans, Laurence Mullen, Paul David Hewson

  • Miraleo from GaRyan -- I have always thought he was saying (at the point you are referring) "She thinks she's so good.....something something".
  • Mickey D. from Fremont, Caabout 2:55-3:02, the lyric goes like "two sides sing song then...to fight"
  • Ryan from Rochester, Nydoes anyone have any idea what Bono is saying after the second "Woah-oh-oh
    Yes, and I know the truth about you
    She cat." at about 2:55-3:02 min into this song? it comes right after his....grunting....I've been trying to figure it out for years.
