Lean On Me

from What Kind Of Cat Are You?!

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.

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

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!

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
