"Stand By Me (Ben E. King cover)" as written by and Mike Stoller Jerry Leiber....
When the night
Has come
And the land is dark
And the moon is the only light we'll see

Well I won't be affraid
No I won't be affraid
Just as long as you stand, stand by me

So darling, darling stand by me
Won't you stand by me
Just as long as you stand, stand by me

When the sky that we look upon
Thumble and falls
And the mountains crumble to the sea

I wont cry, I won't cry
No I won't shed a tear
Just as long as you stand by me

So darling, darling stand by me
Oh won't you stand by me
Oh won't you stand, won't you stand, stand by me

So darling, darling stand by me
Oh won't you stand by me
Oh won't you stand, won't you stand, stand by me

When the night
Has come
And the land is dark
And the moon is the only light we'll see

I wont cry, no I won't cry
No I won't shed a tear
Just as long as you fuckin stand by me

So darling, darling stand by me
Oh won't you stand by me
Oh won't you stand, won't you stand, stand by me

Darling, darling stand by me
Oh won't you stand by me
Oh won't you stand, won't you stand, stand by me

    General CommentA wicked cover to one of the best songs ever. This is equal to Ben E. King's and John Lennon's version, which is one of my favourite songs ever.

    General Commentummm, considering it's labeled under Pennywise, I'd say no. NOFX and Pennywise sound a little similar, but this is definitely Pennywise. Off the CD Word from the Wise. Best cover ever, and the "f-word" makes it great and makes it not boring. Equal to 311's cover of Love song

    General CommentI don't think Pennywise and NOFX sound similar at all. And this cover could NEVER be as good as the original one. still good though. And the f-word is alright. And the movie rules.

    General Commentstryker, get your head out of your ass you fuckhead. NOFX and Pennywise sound nothing alike. and this band did do a LOT of covers, so it could have been from a different band.
