You'got a friend?

A proposito dei dibatti in classe di questi giorni...
You've Got a Friend è un brano musicale di Carole King, incluso nell'album del 1971 Tapestry. Una cover del brano è stata pubblicata come singolo nello stesso anno da James Taylor e inserita in Mud Slide Slim and the Blue Horizon; questa versione ha raggiunto la prima posizione della Billboard Hot 100 e il quarto posto nella UK Singles Chart. You've Got a Friend ha vinto un Grammy Award sia con Carol King (come canzone dell'anno), sia con James Taylor (miglior interpretazione vocale maschile pop).

per avere sott'occhio il testo, e per sentire come (oggi) lo stesso cantante la canta...

You’ve got a friend (James Taylor)
When you're down and troubled
and you need a helping hand,
and nothing, whoa nothing is going right.
Close your eyes and think of me
and soon I will be there
to brighten up even your darkest nights.

You just call out my name,
and you know wherever I am
I'll come running, oh yeah baby
to see you again.
Winter, spring, summer, or fall,
all you got to do is call
and I'll be there, yeah, yeah, yeah.
You've got a friend.

If the sky above you
should turn dark and full of clouds
and that old north wind should begin to blow
Keep your head together and call my name out loud now
and soon I'll be knocking upon your door.
You just call out my name and you know where ever I am
I'll come running to see you again.
Winter, spring, summer or fall
all you got to do is call
and I'll be there, yeah, yeah, yeah.
Hey, ain't it good to know that you've got a friend?
People can be so cold.
They'll hurt you and desert you.
Well they'll take your soul if you let them.
Oh yeah, but don't you let them.
You just call out my name and you know wherever I am
I'll come running to see you again.
Oh babe, don't you know that,
Winter spring summer or fall,
Hey now, all you've got to do is call.
Lord, I'll be there, yes I will.
You've got a friend.
You've got a friend.
Ain't it good to know you've got a friend?
Ain't it good to know you've got a friend?
You've got a friend.
