"Werewolf (Michael Hurley cover)" as written by and Ole/holter Evenrude....
Oh the werewolf, oh the werewolf
Comes stepping along
He don't even break the branches where he's gone
Once I saw him in the moonlight, when the bats were a flying
I saw the werewolf, and the werewolf was crying

Cryin' nobody knows, nobody knows, body knows
How I loved the man, as I teared off his clothes.
Cryin' nobody know, nobody knows my pain
When I see that it's risen; that fool moon again

For the werewolf, for the werewolf has sympathy
For the werewolf, somebody like you and me.
And only he goes to me, man this little flute I play.
All through the night, until the light of day, and we are doomed to play.

For the werewolf, for the werewolf, has sympathy
For the werewolf, somebody like you and me.

    General Commentthat's funny my (gf) who gave me this song noted that it was probably the scariest song she'd ever heard- maybe it's just the violins w/ her voice... buuuut prolly won't make love to it then

    General CommentI always thought this song was Cat Power's originally but when i saw it wasn't i listened to the original by Michael Hurley and I thought it was horrible compared to Cat Power's, she has such emotion in her voice and his is so flat, its so hard to believe that this isn't Cat Power's song, she owns it

    General Commenti just had the pleasure of discovering this song in 'Powder Blue'..
    its never too late to find treasure.. <3

    btw. im sure everyone who has seen that movie will agree that if it werent for Cat Powers voice and this songs lyrics.. that hot, meloncholy scene Jessica Biel performed in wouldntve been as amazing.

    General CommentAbout... devouring the one you love, there is no other choice because that's the specie you are. There is no other way out, and that's why it cries to the moon, yearning for what it is and doing the things it does even taking it to the limit of destroying the love of your life. Making love to this song is certainly the best, I recommend it.

    General CommentI really like this song. I think that she isn't necessarily describing an actual werewolf, but just any person who is misunderstood and is only seen for their poor qualities. She then goes and says that one should have sympathy for 'monsters' since underneath, they really are just lonely people too.
