It may not be any of those you drink with in the bar
When you are in trouble you'll know who your friends are,
Your friends will not desert you in your time of need
Just like it is said such friends are friends indeed,
The praises of friendship you hear people sing
But friendship for many is a conditional thing
Those who in friendship for them must be financial gain
Only for as long as you prosper as friends their type with you remain,
Your true friends as your true friends through your tough times will stay
Rats desert the sinking ship as some are known to say
Your friends will stand by you even in poverty
That's what friendship's about with that would you agree?
You may be the saddest of the poor of the town
But your friends won't ignore you when life has you down.
