When you're down and troubled
And you need a helping hand
And nothing, ooh, nothing is going right.
Close your eyes and think of me
And soon I will be there
To brighten up even your darkest nights.

You just call out my name,
And you know wherever I am
I'll come running,
To see you again.
Winter, spring, summer or fall,
All you have to do is call
And I'll be there, yeah, yeah, yeah
You've got a friend.

If the sky above you
Should turn dark and full of clouds
And that old north wind should begin to blow
Keep your head together and call my name out loud
And soon I will be knocking upon your door.
You just call out my name,
And you know where ever I am
I'll come running to see you again.
Winter, spring, summer or fall,
All you go to do is call
And I'll be there, yeah, yeah, yeah

Hey, ain't it good to know that you've got a friend?
People can be so cold.
They'll hurt you and desert you.
Well they'll take your soul if you let them.
Oh yeah, but don't you let them.

You just call out my name,
And you know wherever I am
I'll come running to see you again.
Winter, spring, summer or fall,
Hey now, all you've go to do is call.
Lord, I'll be there, yes Iwill.
You've got a friend.
You've got a friend.
Ain't it good to know you've got a friend.
Ain't it good to know you've got a friend.
You've got a friend.
