a friend in need is a friend indeed — People are confusing this with a positive idiom It's not.

This idiom means someone who needs help will overly assert themselves as a friend. Look at it like (someone in need) is (definitely your friend).

It is not "When you are in need a friend supports you," rather, it is referring to how someone who may be a distant acquaintance is suddenly your best friend when they need something. The word 'indeed' is used to introduce a surprising point. So the latter half (is a friend) is meant to be surprising.

It could be looked at like this:

(Not)a friend is a friend(suddenly) when in need.

"a friend in need is a friend indeed" in lyrics

A friend in need is a friend indeed. It's indeed great. Indeed it's great. Ho ho.
What is even greater though is when you pay it forward. Am I right?
A friend in need is a friend indeed. Ho, ho, ho.
What is even greater though is when you pay it forward.

GG Caravan - It's great indeed

Practice makes perfect, every beginning is difficult
Constant dropping wear away the stone; ending good, all good
A friend in need is a friend indeed, a hand washes the other
Opposites attract,
The apple doesn't fall far from the tree

Unheilig - The Wisdoms Of Life

Nothing is as it appears
Errs the one who leads this nation
A friend in need is a friend indeed
There are things of which one should know

Farben Lehre - Against the Wind

Take a look around you baby, who's standing there, who's standing there.

Here is a friend, here is a friend, for a friend in need.
And a friend in need is a friend indeed, friend indeed.

Eric Stewart - A Friend in Need

Look around, there is so much anguish in the world, and sometimes you can't hear the voice of truth.
Pain of the past separations, hide it in your soul and know that a friend in need is a friend indeed.
Pain of the past separations, hide it in your soul and know that a friend in need is a friend indeed.

Timur Mutsuraev - Life Is Vanity

Where there's a will, there's a way
Or so they say
A friend in need is a friend indeed
He'll be there every day
And if it's trouble that's in store

Supertramp - Where There's a Will
