"My Friend" as written by Keith Edward Crouch, Glenn Mckinney, Billy Curtis and Richard Cornwell....
Whenever I'm down
I call on you my friend
A helping hand you lend
In my time of need

Whenever I'm down
I call on you my friend
(I call on you my friend)
(I call on you my friend)

Listen

Whenever I'm down
I call on you my friend
A helping hand you lend
In my time of need

Whenever I'm down
I call on you my friend
(I call on you my friend)
(I call on you my friend)

Whenever I'm down
And all that's going on
Is really going on
Just one of those days (and ju-h)

You say the right things
To keep me moving on
To keep me going strong
(going strong)
(going strong)

Whenever I'm down

Ain't nobody
(body)
Ain't nobody
(body)

Whenever I'm down
I call on you my friend
A helping hand you lend
In my time of need

Whenever I'm down
I call on you my friend
(I call on you my friend)
(I call on you my friend)

Whenever I'm down
And all that's going on
Is really going on
Just one of those days (and ju-h)

You say the right things
To keep me moving on
To keep me going strong
(going strong)
(going strong)

Whenever I'm down
I call on you my friend
A helping hand you lend
In my time of need

Whenever I'm down
I call on you my friend
(I call on you my friend)
(I call on you my friend)

(Whenever I'm down)
(I call on you)
(Whenever I'm down)
(I call)

Ain't nobody
(body)
Ain't nobody
(body)

    General CommentMe, too - lovin' it... & it needs to be repetitious. The sentiment is as simple as that; needs no other re-enforcement. WORK!

    General CommentI love this song because it makes me think at my best friend...when the door is closed and we sit on the bed, smoking and talking and it feels like there is nothing else in the world. I love how she shows her friendship with her deeds and not with many words.. meeting her is perhaps the only good thing that happened in my life.

    General CommentThis song is so awesome. It's definitely from a movie but I can't think of which one.

    General CommentI don't think this songs is about "friends" at all. I think it is about drugs. "Whenever I'm down I call on you my friend, a helping hand you lend in my time of need". Friend = a drug that makes you feel better.
