File:Bein' Friends.ogg Bein' Friends is a song in Mother. It is the second overworld theme and plays whenever Ninten is traveling with other party members (i.e., after Lloyd joins him or while he is traveling with Pippi). When Ninten is traveling alone, Pollyanna plays instead.

A remix of the tune appears as one of the tracks for the Onett stage in Super Smash Bros. Melee under the title "Mother 1"; this remix reappears in Super Smash Bros. Brawl along with its stage. Versions of the song also appear in the soundtracks for Mother and Mother 1+2.

Lyrics

The tune was given words on the vocal soundtrack for Mother, and is the second track of the album. The vocals were performed by Catherine Warwick.

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 are 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 wouldn't do
I'd 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 is all about
