FRIENDS ARE HARD TO FIND,

GOOD ONES ESPECIALLY SO.

THE FRIENDS WHO STAND BY YOU,

REALLY ARE THE ONES TO KNOW.

 

SOME ARE "FLY BY NIGHT",

FAIR WEATHER FRIENDS ONLY.

WHEN IT COMES TO THE TEST,

ALWAYS YOU WILL END UP LONELY.

 

SOME FRIENDS ARE EASILY BOUGHT,

A DIME A DOZEN, PLEASE.

WHO NEEDS ENEMIES, AS THEY SAY,

WHEN YOU HAVE FRIENDS LIKE THESE.

 

THE TRUE FRIEND NEVER LEAVES,

MILES AWAY HE MAY BE.

ALL THAT'S NEEDED IS A CALL,

BY YOUR SIDE WILL SOON BE HE.

 

REAL FRIENDS WILL NEVER DENY,

EXPECTATIONS NONE TOO GREAT.

A LIFE TO BE LAID DOWN,

IF NECESSARY, TO SAVE YOUR MATE.

 

TO FIND YOURSELF TRUE FRIENDS,

CAN NOT BE BY WORD OF MOUTH.

FRIENDS WILL FIND EACH OTHER,

LIKE MAGNETIC NORTH AND SOUTH.
