lyrics

When we were in high school, you and me sure were the best of friends
But now that we're in life, I only see you when a blue moon shines

When I got hitched, you came for the food
But when I broke up, you weren't in the mood
To lend an ear in my time of need
And when I call, you say you're really busy

Any hour of the day – you may be there
Any hour of the night – you might be there
Any day of the week – you could be there
I can count on you
Twenty-three six
Twenty-three six

I have always been a tower of strength when you could use a smile
It seems you'd have an hour or two to spare when I can't help but cry

When I buy lunch you come for the food
But when I go broke, you ain't in the mood
To lend a hand in my time of need
And when I call, you still say that you’re busy

[repeat Chorus]

Where have you been, where have you been, where have you been
Fair-weather friend, fair-weather friend, fair-weather friend

I have always been the one to trust whenever you've been down
But I'm a little tired of standing up for one who's not around

So when you cook out, I'll come for the food
But when you break down, I ain't in the mood
To lend an ear in your time of need
And when you call, I think I will be busy

Any hour of the day – I may be there
Any hour of the night – I might be there
Any day of the week – I could be there
You can count on me
Twenty-three six
Twenty-three six
Twenty-three six
