Bein'_Friends

Bein' Friends

Bein' Friends, with the lyrics

When you are happy
With laughter to spare
Fun is twice as fun
With someone to share
When you are lonely
And full of despair
Things aren't half as bad
When somebody cares

Maybe now you have figured it out
That's what bein' a friend is about
When you're lookin'
For a shoulder you can cry on
Won't you think about me
When you're lookin' for someone you can rely on
Don't you ever doubt me
I'll be there someway, somehow
That's what bein' friends is about

When you grow restless
And want room to breathe
I will give you all
The space that you need
And when you're ready
For my company
I will come around
Just call on me

Maybe now you have figured it out
That's what bein' a friend is about
When you need someone
Who feels the way you do
Won't you think about me
Someone who can pick you up
When you are blue
Don't you ever doubt me
I'll be there someway, somehow
That's what bein' friends is about

I'm your friend till the end
Count on me
In the sunshine and the rain
Paradise and back again
Count on me
Let me be a friend in need
Let me be a friend indeed
Count on me

And if you ask me
You know that it's true
There is not a thing
That I will not do
I'll follow you
To the ends of the earth
That's how much I think
Our friendship is worth

Maybe now you have figured it out
That's what bein' a friend is about
When there's something
That you just don't understand
Won't you think about me
I'll be more than glad
To lend a helping hand
Don't you ever doubt me
I'll be there someway, somehow
That's what bein friends is about
I'll be there someway, somehow
That's what bein friends is about

Tell me all your secrets
I will swear to keep them
Let me know your problems
I will help you solve them

When your heart is aching
I will stop it breaking
When you are in danger
I am your guardian angel
I will stand beside you
Be the one to guide you
When your dreams are crumblin'
Call me I'll come runnin'
That's what friends are all about.

Trivia[]

  • The song is most likely talking about Ninten, Ana, Lloyd and Teddy's friendship.
  • This track is remixed along with the Eight Melodies and the title theme in Super Smash Bros. Melee. It plays on the Onett stage.
  • For a long time, since Melee, the Bein' Friends remix has been misinterpreted as a song from EarthBound, literally being called "EarthBound" in Melee, and then "Onett" in both Brawl and SSB4.
  • This song was accidentally named "Bein' Freind" in the Super Smash Bros Ultimate soundtrack. This was fixed in the 2.0.0 update of the same game.
