Lean on Me - 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 your friend,
I’ll help you carry on,
for it won’t be long
‘til I’m gonna need somebody to 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.

 
 You 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’ll understand
 We all need somebody to lean on.

 

Lean on me when you’re not strong,

and I’ll be your friend,

I’ll help you carry on—

For it won’t be long ‘til
I’m gonna need somebody to lean on.

 

You 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’ll understand    

We all need somebody to lean on.

 

If there is a load
you have to bear
that you can’t carry,

I’m right up the road,
I’ll share your load
if you’ll just call me

Call me (if you need a friend).  Call me.

(Repeat until fade)
