Boy's Best Friend

Verse 1 (introduction)
When a friend begins to drift up through the sky,
You wonder how you must say goodbye.
It seems an eternity to when she finally goes.
Where is she now? Only God knows.

Refrain
My dog Kasa is up so high.
She is ascending the ladder through the sky.
She is in Heaven, watching over us.
This is for Kasa, Who I could always trust.

Verse 2
Her jet-black body is floating through my heart.
Now I sense that this is just the start.
How will I remember her in the coming years?
So I'm writing a song. I'm drying my tears.

Refrain
My dog Kasa is up so high.
She is ascending the ladder through the sky.
She is in heaven, looking down at me.
So I think to myself, how can this be?

Verse 3
When a person dies it's a terrible thing.
People cry as they're remembering.
But when a dog meets a graceful end,
You feel as if your insides will never mend.

Refrain
My dog Kasa is up so high.
She is ascending the ladder through the sky.
How could she meet this kind of end?
Farewell to Kasa, boy's best friend.

Coda
Farewell to Kasa, Boy's best friend.
