Hand To Hold On To

You can laugh and joke and make fun of your friends
Spin in the middle when your troubles begin
Take it nice and easy and always pretend
That you're cool, so cool, so cool

Say, I'munna hold onto that a while and I will and I'll be tame
Talk like a jerk on educated brain
Be an old girl drivin' the young boys insane
Be a joker, a preacher, it does not matter

Everyone needs a hand to hold on to
Everyone needs a hand to hold on to
Don't need to be no strong hand
Don't need to be no rich hand
Everyone just needs a hand to hold on to

Havin' good luck with your financial situation
Play the ponies, be the President of the United Nation
Go to work and be a Hollywood stand
Drive your four wheel drive right into the mud, but

Everyone needs a hand to hold on to
Everyone needs a hand to hold on to
Don't need to be no strong hand
Don't need to be no rich hand
Everyone just needs a hand to hold on to

And in those hours when you're alone
And there's nobody there except yourself
I know it you wanna pick up the phone
And say, "Talk to me, talk to me
Somebody please talk to me", yeah

Oh yeah, everyone needs a hand to hold on to
Everyone needs a hand to hold on to
Don't need to be no strong hand
Don't need to be no rich hand

Everyone needs a hand to hold on to
Everyone needs a hand to hold on to
Don't need to be no strong hand
Don't need to be no rich hand

Everyone needs a hand to hold on to
Everyone needs a hand to hold on to
Don't need to be no strong hand
Don't need to be no rich hand
