You Can Lean On Me

Words and Music by Raccoon

When I was a young boy

I never did the things I was told no, no, no, no, no

Now that Iím a little older and Iím livin' on the road

Yes, Iím crazy

You gotta be crazy to live this way

You gotta be crazy to live day by day

Hey, hey Iím crazy

 

I used to be into material possession

'Till I fell into this spiritual recession

Iíve got one thing left to give away thatís plain to see

That thing is that you can lean on me

You can lean on me

 

When none of your friends are around

Just as long as Iím in town

You can lean on me

 

You gotta be kind to the hobo (and the wino)

'Cuz you might be one someday hey, hey, hey

When youíre a deadbeat and livin' on the street

Youíre gonna wish that you could hear someone say:

ďYou can lean on meĒ

You can lean on me

 

When your dickís in the dirt

And the things that people say begin to hurt

You can lean on me

 

When everybodyís on your case

And you canít seem to find your place

You can lean on me

 

Iím as strong as a mountain

Givin' up love like a fountain

You can lean on me

 

If you need a shoulder you can cry on

If you need a lap you can die on

You can lean on me

 

You can lean on me

You can lean on me

 

You got to roll with the punches

Trouble always comes in bunches

But donít you forget, but donít forget, donít forget how to smile

You gotta run the last mile

 

You can lean on me

You can lean on me

You can lean on me

 

Because Iím crazy you can lean on me

Iím certifiably crazy with no guarantee

Iím in-deniably crazy you can lean on me

You can lean on me
