Sometimes in our lives,
We all have pain,
We all have sorrow,
But, if we are wise,
We know that there's always tomorrow

Lean on me when your not strong,
And I'll be your friend
I'll help you carry on,
For it won't be long 'till I'm Gonna need
Somebody to lean on.

Please swallow your pride
If I have things you need to borrow
For no one can feel those of your needs
That you wont let show

Just call on me brother when you need a hand
We all need somebody to lean on
I just might have a problem
That you'd understand
We all need somebody to lean on

Lean on me when your not strong,
And I'll be your friend
I'll help you carry on,
For it won't be long 'till I'm Gonna need
Somebody to lean on.

Just call on me brother when you need a hand
We all need somebody to lean on
I just might have a problem
That you'd understand
We all need somebody to lean on

If there is a load
That you can't carry
I'm right up the road
I'll share your load
If you just call me
(Call me)
If you need a friend
(Call me)
If you ever need a friend
(Call me)
Call me
(Call me)
Call me
(Call me)
Call me
(Call me)
Call me
(Call me)
If you ever need a friend
(Call me)
Call me
(Call me)
Call me
(Call me)
Call me
(Call me)
Call me
(Call me)
