about

This song is for Annabelle, a pit bull, who wandered into my family's home from off the street and stole my heart. She kept me company during a particularly difficult time in my life. - Katherine

lyrics

Annabelle fell from the sky
One dark and stormy evening
Bounded up to help me
As my heart would not stop bleeding

God hears all his little lambs
When they are loudly bleating
Sends someone in to calm the din
Annabelle I was needing

Annabelle, oh my sweet Annabelle
Stay with me, don't leave me now
Annabelle, I really need some help
Stay with me, don't leave me now

I know you are made of steel
Much stronger than the others
But tigress please play careful
With your sisters and your brothers

I feel weak, a marshmallow
A kid who's on the couch
Annabelle, my girl, my friend
Come and help me out

Annabelle, oh my sweet Annabelle
Stay with me, don't leave me now
Annabelle, I really need some help
Stay with me, don't leave me now

When you're curled up on the bed
You're meek, never too tough
But when we're playing tug-of-war
I get scared, you get too rough

Girl, you know we are alike
Sunny, sometimes dark
I'll do my best not to go down
If you don't give any angry barks

Annabelle, oh my sweet Annabelle
Stay with me, don't leave me now
Annabelle, I need some help

Spotted paw
Tiger jaw
Keep it shut
You little mutt
I don't want to give you up
No, I don't want to give you up
