~ Lean On Me ~ Song by Bill Withers

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 you're not strong
And I'll be you're friend
I'll help you carry on... for
It won't be long
'Til I'm gonna need
Somebody ta lean on

Please swallow your pride
If I have things, you need to borrow... for
No one can fill, those of your needs
That you won't let show

CHORUS:
You just call lonely brother
When you need a hand
We all need somebody to lean on
I just might have a problem
That you'll understand
We all need somebody to lean on

Lean on me, when you're not strong
And I'll be you're friend
I'll help you carry on... for
It won't be long
Till I'm gonna need
Somebody to lean on

CHORUS:
You just call lonely brother
When you need a hand
We all need somebody to lean on
I just might have a problem
That you'll understand
We all need somebody to lean on

If there is a load, you have to bare
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
Call me... if you need a friend
Call me... if you ever need a friend... call me
Call me...
Song fades out repeating the last 4 lines
