"Lean on Me"

Updated: Jun 11

In a time of uncertainty, knowing that someone is there for you is wonderful. Knowing that a whole community is there for you is inspiring.


Leading with Kindness means you can always "Lean on Me."


Special thanks to Mrs. Fyhr and the Bushy Park Music Department for their support of this project.


"Lean on Me" is a song written and recorded by American singer-songwriter Bill Withers. It was released in April 1972 as the first single from his second album, Still Bill. It was a number one single on both the soul singles and the Billboard Hot 100; the latter chart for three weeks in July 1972. Wikipedia

Read the lyrics:


Hmm

Hmm hmm hmm hmm

Hmm hmm hmm hmm

Hmm hmm hmm hmm hmm


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 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)
