Lyrics

Fair Weather Friend (ver. 5)

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
We hatched a plan to take over the world

When it started raining
Then we started changing
Fair weather friends
Fair weather friends
When skies turned cloudy
We were just like Gaudí
Fair weather friends
Fair weather friends

Maybe we were devious
Riding it, using us
All along we had our plan
Ditch it just as quickly as we can

Tensions 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 we started changing
Fair weather friends
Fair weather friends
When the skies turned cloudy
We were just like Gaudí
Fair weather friends
Fair weather friends

Everybody needs a kemo sabe
(Everybody needs a special friend)
Someone to trust until the world goes pop
(Someone to trust until the bitter end)
So don't pretend you don't believe a word I say
We never should have let it get away

When it started raining
Then we started changing
Fair weather friends
Fair weather friends
When the skies turned cloudy
We were just like Gaudí
Fair weather friends
Fair weather friends

Fair Weather Friend (ver. 6)

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 we started changing
Fair weather friend
Fair weather friend
As the skies turned cloudy
You were just like Gaudí
Fair weather friend
Fair weather friend

Maybe you were devious
Riding me, using us
All along you had a plan
Ditch me just as quickly as you can

Tensions 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 we started changing
Fair weather friend
Fair weather friend
As the skies turned cloudy
You were just like Gaudí
Fair weather friend
Fair weather friend

It's good to have a partner in crime
Somebody who will always lend a dime
So don't pretend you don't believe the words I say
We never should have let it get away
We let it get away

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

Fair Weather Friend (ver. 8)

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
Summer skies turned cloudy
You were just like Gaudí
Fair weather friend
Fair weather friend

Maybe you were devious
Riding me, using us
All along you had a plan
Ditch the loser as quick as you can

Tensions 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
Summer skies turned cloudy
You were just like Gaudí
Fair weather friend
Fair weather friend

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 tears me up inside
'Cause you should be here with me tonight

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