Lyrics

  • When you’re down and troubled
  • And you need some love and care
  • And nothin’, no, nothin’ is goin’ right
  • Just close your eyes and think of me
  • And soon I’ll be there
  • To brighten up
  • Yeah, even your darkest night


  • 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 have to do is call
  • And I’ll be there, yeah I will
  • You’ve got a friend


  • When the sky above you
  • Grows dark and full of clouds
  • And that old north wind
  • Yeah, he begins to blow
  • Here’s what you do baby
  • Keep your head together
  • Together, baby
  • And call my name out loud
  • And soon you’ll hear me
  • Knockin’, knockin’ at your door
  • Oh yes I will, yes I will


  • You just call out my name
  • And you know, wherever I am
  • I’ll come runnin’
  • To see you again


  • Winter, spring, summer or fall
  • All you have to do is call
  • And I’ll be there, yes I will


  • Ain’t it good to know
  • That you’ve got a friend
  • People can be so cold
  • They’ll hurt you, yeah
  • And desert you
  • And take your soul if you let them
  • But don’t let them
  • No, no, no, don’t let them


  • Winter, spring, summer or fall
  • All you have to do is call
  • And I’ll be there, I’ll be there, yes I will


  • You’ve got a friend, yes you do
  • You’ve got a friend, yes you do
  • Right till the end for you
  • Ain’t it good to know
  • You’ve got a friend
  • Yes you do
