Hey what's your name I think I like you
Come a little closer now
Wait what you say is that your girlfriend
Think I'll be turning that around

Don't you wanna don't you wanna
Don't you wanna know what it would feel like?

Let's be friends so we can make out
You're so hot let me show you around
I see what I want and I want to play
Everyone knows I get it my way
It doesn't matter what you say
I'm knocking you down down down
I'm knocking you down down down
I'm knocking you down

Hey let me flip through the pages
To something outrageous
Potentially maybe it could be more
But don't get your hopes up
First let's just first hook up
Maybe you'll be what I'm looking for

Don't you wanna don't you wanna
Don't you wanna know what it would feel like?

Let's be friends so we can make out
You're so hot let me show you around
I see what I want and I want to play
Everyone knows I get it my way
It doesn't matter what you say
I'm knocking you down down down
I'm knocking you down down down
I'm knocking you down

You got my permission
Don't need no admission
'Cause I'm on a mission
You've got my attention
There's no need to mention the way
The way you feel
'Cause you're in my vision
I need a decision
So take a position
There's no need to question
My every intention
'Cause this is real

Let's be friends so we can make out
You're so hot let me show you around
I see what I want and I want to play
Everyone knows I get it my way
It doesn't matter what you say
I'm knocking you down
I'm knocking you down down down
I'm knocking you down down down
I'm knocking you down

Let's be friends so we can make out
You're so hot let me show you around
I see what I want and I want to play
Everyone knows I get it my way
It doesn't matter what you say
I'm knocking you down down down
I'm knocking you down down down
I'm knocking you down

Song facts

Let's Be Friends was released for digital download on June 8, 2010 as the lead single from Osment's debut album, Fight or Flight. It was written by Emily Osment, Toby Gad, and Mandi Perkins.

Osment has previously stated in an interview that "Let's Be Friends" is about a complicated relationship she held with someone in 2009. She also mentioned she chose the beach as the scene for her music video as beaches reminded her of that person. In the same interview, Osment said she wore the same clothes she wore when she met that person.

The single has been met with mixed to positive reviews from critics. However, several critics, and many fans, have commented that the song sounds like a mixture of Miley Cyrus's "Can't Be Tamed" and P!nk's "Funhouse". They also compared Osment to her Hannah Montana co-star Miley Cyrus, stating that she has turned to more of a mature and sexual image.

"Let's Be Friends" garnered great success in Japan, debuting and peaking at number twenty-four in the Billboard Japan Hot 100 chart, making the song Osment's first top-thirty hit as a single and her most successful single to date. In addition, the single was also successful in Germany, peaking at number sixty-seven and remained in the German chart for over six weeks.
