Lyrics
Suzan told me to leave
saying she's a woman who’s cute
All of a sudden she said she found a substitute

But I'm just letting you know that I'll be around
I'll be your bridge over troubled waters
So you won’t get drown
Cause Your substitute's gonna put you down alright

I heard you're smoking cigarettes by the pack
Since you told me to leave and don’t come back yeah
It wasn't my fault
You were the one who said we're through
Now you're drinking liquor
which you didn't do
But I'll be around
so you wont get drown,
Cause your substitute's gonna put you down

Whenever time you're in trouble alright
Just call my name and I'll be on the double
so you wont get drowned,
cause your substitute's gonna put you down
But I'll be around,
yes I'll be around, etc, etc,
