Karen Mantler – My Cat Arnold Is Dead lyrics

Karen: "Arnold
More than a cat, he’s not just any cat
Big furry pillow with claws

I love you so much
All I do is think of you

They ask me what’s wrong
It’s just that Arnold
Is so nice
I can’t bear to lose him

I loved him
My only friend
Now he’s dead"

Guy: "I know it’s hard
I feel the same way"

Karen: "How could you know what he meant to me?
I loved him – so much

He was my cat (Arnold)
The only cat
I ever truly loved (Arnold)

I can’t believe he’s gone (Arnold)
He might be dead, but I still play a song

He was my cat (Arnold)
How could he die and leave me all alone?
I miss him
Now that he’s gone – I’m alone"

Guy: "You’re not alone"
Band: "You still have us, dear"

Karen: "It’s not the same
How can I go on?
Without him, I’m lost"

He was my cat

All: "Arnold
One look at you, it was love at first sight
So soft and fat, what a cat
Arnold, who could resist you?
Touching you was paradise
They think we’re cra-zy
But if you held him
You’d agree there’s no cat as great as
