Fear Of The Dog: This Pooch Loves Iron Maiden

Fear Of The Dark is one of the strongest songs on Iron Maiden’s final album before Bruce Dickinson left in 1994, its irresistible choruses and refrains have made it an adored Iron Maiden fan favorite and live gig staple.

Even four legged Iron Maiden fans can’t help but to inherently chant and bounce along.

“We knew right away that it was going to be a standout live track, everything about it – the power, the melodies, the lyrics, the pacing of the song and the way it changes – it really sums up what Maiden is all about. The way the fans sing it when we’re playing live, it really has become an anthem for us.”  – Guitarist Dave Murray

We also wanted to share with you some lyrics written by a gentleman named Chris Pollman that take a humorous approach to Fear of the Dark written by Iron Maiden founding member Steve Harris…

Enjoy “Fear Of The Dog”

I am the man who carries mail
And when I’m walking a street trail
What fright, I hear a canine bark
Put the mail into the slot,
Sometimes I feel not so hot
A little anxious, hear those paws

Fear of the dog, fear of the dog
I have a constant fear that doggie’s always near
Fear of the dog, fear of the dog
I have a phobia that canines’ always there

Have you run your fingers through its hair?
And have you seen it’s evil glare
When you’re running for your life
Sometimes when I’m scared to take a look
At the dog pen in the yard,
I sense that Bowser’s always watching me

Fear of the dog, fear of the dog
I have a constant fear that doggie’s always near
Fear of the dog, fear of the dog
I have a phobia that canines’ always there

Have you ever felt such a fright?
Think I hear footsteps from behind
I turn around, that dog is there
And as I quicken up my pace, I find it hard to look again
Because I’m sure that poochie’s there.

Fear of the dog, fear of the dog
I have a constant fear that doggie’s always near
Fear of the dog, fear of the dog
I have a phobia that canines’ always there

Fear of the dog, fear of the dog
Fear of the dog, fear of the dog (x2)

Watching Air Bud films the night before
Debating bitches but not whores
The unknown troubles on my mind
And though they do like fetching sticks
I sense, and suddenly I see, attacking canine from behind

Fear of the dog, fear of the dog
I have a constant fear that doggie’s always near
Fear of the dog, fear of the dog
I have a phobia that canines’ always there (x2)

And when I’m walking a street trail
I am the man who carries mail….
