Manny don't need no comfortin'
He don't ask of the world to bring him up
Ain't gonna see him waitin' on
Waitin' on, waitin' on the day

Got him a chair in '73
It was his only option, so Manny agreed
Same chair he has today
Since they threw the cane away

And Manny wasn't doin' nothin'
He just doin' his own thing
You know it gettin' pretty cold out
By the jub jub swing

And oh, this friend today, right me up
(Right me up)
And oh, this friend today, right me up

And oh, this friend today, right me up
(Right me up)
And oh, this friend today, right me up
I'm not so weak

Manny gonna go where the rabble go
He gonna roll down the world
And he bring me up, ain't gonna see him
Givin' into the others way

'Cause they may beat us in search
But our fall is unstained
You know he says, it won't be long
Till we be up again, havin' another swing

And Manny wasn't doin' nothin'
He just doin' his own thing
You know it gettin' pretty cold
But he the one who bring

And oh, this friend today, right me up
(Right me up)
And oh, this friend today, right me up
(You know I'm not so weak)

And oh, this friend today, right me up
(Right me up)
And oh, this friend today, right me up
I'm not so weak

'Cause the bottle was not empty
(Bottle, not empty)
'Cause your voices are all there
My life will fight in my body for air
(My life will fight)

'Cause the bottle was not empty
(The bottle, not empty)
'Cause your voices are all there
My life will fight in my body for air
(My life will fight)

And oh, this friend today, right me up
And oh, this friend today, right me up
And oh, this friend today, right me up
And oh, this friend today, right me up, I'm not so

And oh, this friend today, right me up
(Right me up)
And oh, this friend today, right me up
(You know I'm not so weak)

And oh, this friend today, right me up
(Right me up)
And oh, this friend today, right me up
I'm not so weak

Why sue me? Why sue me? Why?
Why sue me? Why sue me? Why?
(Not so weak)
Why sue me? Why sue me? Why?
Why sue me? Why sue me? Why?
(Not so weak)

Why sue me? Why sue me? Why?
Why sue me? Why sue me? Why?
Why sue me? Why sue me? Why?
Why sue me? Why?

Manny, we gonna get that a.m. dial just right
I'll hold that hanger up as long as the Sox put up a fight
