You can laugh and joke and make fun of your friends
Spin in the middle when the troubles begin
Take it nice and easy and always pretend
That you're cool, so cool, so cool

Say I'm alone and I'm wild and I will not be pained
Talk like a jerk or an educated brain
Be an old girl driving the young boys insane
Be a joker, a preacher it does not matter

Everyone needs a hand to hold on to
Everyone needs a hand to hold on to
Don't need to be no strong hand
Don't need to be no rich hand
Everyone just needs a hand to hold on to

Having good luck with your financial situation
Play the Ponies, be president of the United Nations
Go to work and be a Hollywood stud
Drive your four wheel drive right into the mud

'Cause everyone needs a hand to hold on to
Everyone needs a hand to hold on to
Don't need to be no strong hand
Don't need to be no rich hand
Everyone just needs a hand to hold on to

And then those hours when you're alone
And there's nobody there except yourself
I know it, you wanna pick up the phone
And say talk to me, talk to me
Somebody please talk to me, yeah

Oh yeah, everyone needs a hand to hold on to
Everyone needs a hand to hold on to
Don't need to be no strong hand
Don't need to be no rich hand

Everyone needs a hand to hold on to
Everyone needs a hand to hold on to
Don't need to be no strong hand
Don't need to be no rich hand

Everyone needs a hand to hold on to
Everyone needs a hand to hold on to
Don't need to be no strong hand
Don't need to be no rich hand
