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 faith 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 just call me (call me)
If you need a friend (call me) call me uh huh(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 need a friend
(Call me) call me (call me) call me (call me) call me (call me) call me (call me)
