Me First And The Gimme Gimmes – You've Got A Friend lyrics

[Originally by Carole King]
You've got a friend
You've got a friend
You've got a friend
You've got a friend

When you're down and troubled
And you need a helping hand
And nothing, 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 got to do is call
And I'll be there, yes I will

You've got a friend

If the sky above your
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

[repeat chorus]

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
They'll take your soul if you let them
But don't you let them

[repeat chorus]

You've got a friend
You've got a friend
You've got a friend
You've got a friend
