When you're down and troubled
And you need some love and care
And nothin’, nothin’ is goin’ right,
Close your eyes and think of me and soon I will be there
To brighten up even your darkest night.
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.
You’re got a friend. There, yes, I will.
If the sky adove you grows dark and full of clouds
And that lo’ north wind begins to blow,
Keep your head together and call my name out loud;
Soon you’ll hear me knockin’ at your door.
Now ain’t it good to know that you’re got a friend
When people can be so cold?
They’ll hurt you, and desert you and take your soul
If you let them.
Oh, but don’t you let them.
You just call there, yes, I will.
You’re got a friend. You’re got a friend.
Ain’t it good to know you’re got a friend.
