Hey how you been, nice to see you again
my fairweather friend
it's too cool to see a face from way back when
my fairweather friend

when i'm riding high
you're always by my side
when i'm laid low
you abandon me

how do you do what can i do for you
my fairweather friend
better use me up now while i'm still of use
my fairweather friend

when i'm riding high
you're always by my side
when i'm laid low you abandon me (don't see you around here anymore)
i really don't have the time for you
my fairweather friend
don't want to have to be nice to you
my fairweather friend

when i'm riding high you're always by my side
when i'm laid low you abandon me (don't see you around here anymore)
I really don't have the time for you
my fairweather friend
don't want to have to be nice to you
my fairweather friend
there's no room in my life for you
my fairweather friend
time to say goodbye to you
my fairweather friend

    General CommentYeah, this song is pretty obviously about those friends. The kind that you stop and see in the street and talk for about a minute and then you don't see them for another year. Everyone's got some fairweather friends.
