A friend in need's a friend indeed
A friend with weed is better
A friend with breasts and all the rest
A friend who's dressed in leather

A friend in need's a friend indeed
A friend who'll tease is better
Our thoughts compressed
Which makes us blessed
And makes for stormy weather

(Dawning, skins crawling)
(Dawning)

A friend in need's a friend indeed
My Japanese is better
And when she's pressed she will undress
And then she's boxing clever

A friend in need's a friend indeed
A friend who bleeds is better
My friend confessed she passed the test
And we will never sever

Day's dawning, skins crawling
Day's dawning, skins crawling
Day's dawning, skins crawling
Day's dawning, skins crawling
Pure morning
Pure morning
Pure morning
Pure morning

A friend in need's a friend indeed
A friend who'll tease is better
Our thoughts compressed
Which makes us blessed
And makes for stormy weather

A friend in need's a friend indeed
A friend who bleeds is better
My friend confessed she passed the test
And we will never sever

Day's dawning, skins crawling
Day's dawning, skins crawling
Day's dawning, skins crawling
Day's dawning, skins crawling
Pure morning
Pure morning
Pure morning
Pure morning
Pure morning
Pure morning
Pure morning
Pure morning

A friend in need's a friend indeed
My Japanese is better
And when she's pressed she will undress
And then she's boxing clever

A friend in need's a friend indeed
A friend with weed is better
A friend with breasts and all the rest
A friend who's dressed in leather

    General CommentI agree that this song is in a way a celebration of friendship with women..but it has some serious undertones...this song is a real self-examination....its like "what are you in it for?" it isn't just with women either, it seems it could be for any friend (although this song specifically was certainly about a female friend)...maybe I am getting too deep here, but its the age-old question "is man generally good or generally evil?" meaning good- naturally giving and friendly and helpful even if there is no personal gain in it? or evil-viewing life as a businessman and only maintaining relationships that prove to be "assets" to you? I think it kind of bothers the singer that he has personal lust and needs that need to be fulfilled in order to make the friendship "better" or even exsistent in the first place..and he knows that ideally they shouldn't matter....but they do..........so ask yourself - are you a giver or a taker? (we are all a little bit of both, and I think that's the message, you know, just to keep things in balance) ....but this friendship seems to be over simplified ("our thoughts compressed") and people always want to believe there's "something more"(more than the giver-taker thing I mean), so this over-simplification leads to some problems ("makes for stormy weather") 'cause nobody want to get the short end of the stick.
