Well (Yeah) we all need someone we can lean on
And if you want it, well you can lean on me

She said "My breasts, they will always be open, baby
You can rest your weary head right on me
And there will always be a space in my parking lot
When you need a little coke and sympathy"

Yeah, we all need someone we can dream on
And if you want it, baby, well you can dream on me
Yeah, we all need someone we can cream on
Yeah, and if you want to, well you can cream on me

I was dreaming of a steel guitar engagement
When you drank my health in scented jasmine tea
You knifed me in my dirty, filthy basement
With that jaded, faded, junky nurse - oh, what pleasant company

Come on, we all need someone we can feed on
Yeah, and if you want it, well you can feed on me
Hey, take my arm, take my leg
Oh baby, don't you take my head

Yeah, we all need someone we can bleed on
Yeah, and if you want it, baby, well you can bleed on me
Yeah, we all need someone we can bleed on
Yeah, yeah, and if you want it, baby, why don't you bleed on me?
All over...

Yeah

Ah get it on, rider
Get it on, rider
You can bleed all over me

Yeah, get it on, rider
Get it on, rider
Yeah, you can be my rider
You can come all over me

Get it on, rider, baby
Get it on, rider
You can come all over me

Come on, get it on, rider, let it come all over me
Yeah, yeah... get it on, rider
