Lyrics

Fair Weather Friend

You drove down
Picked me up
Helped me move all my stuff
I was glad you were there
Sometimes I was too afraid to care

One by one we reached our goals
Overcame the obstacles
You made sure that I was heard
And we drew up a plan to rule the world

When it started raining
Then you started changing
Fair weather friend
Fair weather friend
As the skies turned cloudy
You were just like Gaudi
Fair weather friend
Fair weather friend

Maybe you were devious
Robbing me, using us
All along you had a plan
Ditching me as quickly as you can

Tension rose as our stock fell
Then we heard the closing bell
And though I thought we had a blast
Guess those days were never meant to last

When it started raining
Then you started changing
Fair weather friend
Fair weather friend
As the skies turned cloudy
You were just like Gaudi
Fair weather friend
Fair weather friend

It's good to have a partner in crime
Somebody who would always lend a dime
So don't pretend you don't believe the words I say
Never shine or let it get away
Let it get away

When it started raining
Then you started changing
Fair weather friend
Fair weather friend
As the skies turned cloudy
You were just like Gaudi
Fair weather friend
Fair weather friend

Fair Weather Friends 5

(...)

Everybody needs a Kemosabe (Everybody needs a special friend)
Support the (?) until the world goes pop (?)
So don't pretend you don't believe a words I say

Fair Weather Friend 8

(...)
Summer skies turned cloudy
(...)

(...)
Truth is you were just like a crutch
Because I loved you too much
Wish it could be the same
Quit playing this stupid game
Frustration turns me up inside
'cause you should be here with me tonight
