Friday afternoon fun  
I got to surprise some people today. After work I went for some drinks with some folks. There were some tunes, with which one of the gals sang along. Pop stuff. Girly tunes. Other people in the bar sang a bit as well – it was a relaxed Friday afternoon. I don't sing anymore ('cept in the safety of the car), but then the old, Motown version of Lean On Me came on.

After the lubrication of a few drinks it's easier to sing in public *grin* I got out my big, deep, gospel voice and I sang. Man, it was *fun*! The look on their faces was priceless, and I actually got a small round of applause.

Sometimes it's nice to relax and let loose...

Sometimes in our lives we all have pain
We all have sorrow
But if we are wise
We know that there's always tomorrow

Lean on me, when you're not strong
And I'll be your friend
I'll help you carry on
For it won't be long
'Til I'm gonna need
Somebody to lean on

Please swallow your pride
If I have things you need to borrow
For no one can fill those of your needs
That you don't let show

Lean on me, when you're not strong
And I'll be your friend
I'll help you carry on
For it won't be long
'Til I'm gonna need
Somebody to lean on

If there is a load you have to bear
That you can't carry
I'm right up the road
I'll share your load
If you just call me

So just call on me brother, when you need a hand
We all need somebody to lean on
I just might have a problem that you'd understand
We all need somebody to lean on

Lean on me when you're not strong
And I'll be your friend
I'll help you carry on
For it won't be long
Till I'm gonna need
Somebody to lean on

Lean on me...


Ironic...
