Cat Scratch Fever

Cat Scratch Fever

Released 2004


It seemed like an idea with potential, so I went looking for another song that could further prove the concept. I don't know about you, but I can't think of any artist who's better suited to a Lounge act than Mr. Ted Nugent. "Cat Scratch Fever" took longer, but I could still do a complete project in the span of a weekend.

Behind the Scenes

  • Opus number 2
  • Instruments played - None
  • My daughter's instruments - Oboe
  • Samples used - None
  • Instead of using Band-in-a-Box, I adjusted the tempo and revoiced the instruments
  • Yes, he really sings "Oh, won't you make my bed?"
  • I could do an entire tribute album to the Nuge. Every one of his songs, I hear like this...
Mooseboy's Lyrics
Original Lyrics
You know I don't know where they come from
but they sure do come
I hope they're comin' for me
No ma'm I don't know how they do it
but they sure do it good
I hope they're doin' it for free

They give me cat scratch fever
Cat scratch fever

You know the first time that I got it
I was just 10 years old
Got it from some kitty next door
So then I went and seen the doctor
and he gave me the cure
I think I got it some more

I got the cat scratch fever
Cat scratch fever
I got it bad scratch fever
Cat scratch fever

It's nothin' dangerous
I feel no pain
I got to cha-cha change (cha-cha-cha)
You know you've got it
when you're goin' insane
It makes a grown man cry, cry
Oh, won't you make my bed?

Sure, I make a pussy purr
with the stroke of my hand
They know they`re gettin' it from me
And they know just where to go to
when they need their lovin' man
They know I'm doin' it for free

I'm givin' 'em cat scratch fever
Cat scratch fever
They got it bad scratch fever
Cat scratch fever

Cat scratch fever (when you kiss me)
Fever (when you hold me tight)
Fever

Well I don't know where they come from
but they sure do come
I hope they're comin' for me
And I don't know how they do it
but they sure do it good
I hope they're doin' it for free

They give me cat scratch fever
Cat scratch fever

Well the first time that I got it
I was just 10 years old
I got it from some kitty next door
Well I went and seen the doctor
and he gave me the cure
I think I got it some more

They give me cat scratch fever
Cat scratch fever
I got it bad scratch fever
Cat scratch fever

It's nothin' dangerous
I feel no pain
I got to cha-cha change
You know you got it
when you're goin' insane
It makes a grown man cry, cry
Oh, won't you make my bed?

Well I make a pussy purr
with the stroke of my hand
They know they`re gettin' it from me
And they know just where to go
when they need their lovin' man
They know I'm doin' it for free

I give 'em cat scratch fever
Cat scratch fever
They got it bad scratch fever

Cat scratch fever
Cat scratch fever
Cat scratch fever
Cat scratch fever
Cat scratch fever
