If I fell in a lake, would you dive in
Or stand there and gape?
And if I drowned, would you jump
Or would you let the water burst in my lungs?

Well, a stranger in the street
Maybe the only one on his knees
When your laying by the roadside
Waiting for a friend to come

Got my hopes, got my doubts
My gut reaction says, I got to find out
Who's against, who to trust?
Ooh, you never know, but I might get killed in the rush

But a stranger in the street
Maybe the only one on his knees
When your laying by the roadside
Waiting for a friend to come

You laugh, you think it's a joke
Just stand there grinning
Will you be there at the post
When I ain't winning?

Hey, black or white, good and bad
How many times have I done this and done that
Every life, everyone
If I knew that, I'd probably take out a gun

But it's mother natures law
To get you coming back for more
Instead of laying by the roadside
Waiting for a friend to come

You laugh, you think it's a joke
Just stand there grinning
Will you be there at the post
When I ain't winning?

Hey, black or white, good and bad
How many times have I done this and done that?
Every life, everyone
If I knew that, I'd probably take out a gun

But it's mother natures law
To get you coming back for more
Instead of laying by the roadside
Waiting for the end to come

Laying by the roadside
Waiting for a friend to come
