Whenever You Need A Friend          words and music by Hank Easton

Verse 1:

I want to be a man that always does the best he can

Who listens when you talk - Who lifts you when youÕre down

Who will always be the one you want by your side, at night

Chorus 1:

Not just when you need a friend

Not just when you need someone to hold on to

But whenever you need a friend,  la la la la la la la la

Verse 2:

Sometimes I sit and stare and wonder just why IÕm here

There must be more than this,  though IÕm happy where I sit

And I know IÕm at my best when youÕre by my side thatÕs right

Chorus 2:

Not just when I need a friend

Not just when I need someone to hold on to

But whenever I need a friend

Bridge:

I want to be the one you hold at night that makes things right

I want to be a man that always does the best he can

la la la

Verse 3:

Who knows what things weÕll do,  the places weÕll go 

The people weÕll meet

But IÕll be next to you - youÕll be next to me

And together we will be no matter where we go

Chorus 3:

Not just when we need a friend

Not just when we need someone to hold on to

But whenever we need a friend (Repeat chorus) la la la la la la la la
