about

This is the song we wrote for bantamweight champion, and NI boxing legend Carl Frampton! It has been played in his support in his weigh ins, at public appearances and on UTV.

lyrics

They call him the jackal
Belfast born and bred
Trying to roll with the champ
You're gonna wish that you were dead
He's put the lions in hiding
Got the bear watching his back
'Cause tonight's the night
When the jackal will attack

Tonight (tonight), tonight (tonight)
Hit you like a cannonball (like a cannonball)
Tonight (tonight), tonight (tonight)
Hit you like a cannonball (like a cannonball)
Tonight (tonight), tonight (tonight)
Hit you like a cannonball (like a cannonball)
Tonight (tonight), tonight (tonight)
Hit you like a cannonball, yeah

Welcome to Belfast
Were you sent here for you sins?
Tryin' to go 12 rounds
You're gonna get yourself done in
Have you heard the whispers?
Have you heard what the people say?
The belt belongs in Belfast
And it ain't leaving - no way

Tonight (tonight), tonight (tonight)
Hit you like a cannonball (like a cannonball)
Tonight (tonight), tonight (tonight)
Hit you like a cannonball (like a cannonball)
Tonight (tonight), tonight (tonight)
Hit you like a cannonball (like a cannonball)
Tonight (tonight), tonight (tonight)
Hit you like a cannonball, yeah

Tonight (tonight), tonight (tonight)
Hit you like a cannonball (like a cannonball)
Tonight (tonight), tonight (tonight)
Hit you like a cannonball (like a cannonball)
Tonight (tonight), tonight (tonight)
Hit you like a cannonball (like a cannonball)
Tonight (tonight), tonight (tonight)
Hit you like a cannonball, yeah

Like a cannonball
Like a cannonball
Like a cannonball
Like a cannonball
