Don't be afraid, you and I were made the same little one
And I know what it's like when you feel left out of the game little one
But if you take this helping hand that I lift
Then we can smile together, let's be friends

The world that you see may seem to be a mystery to you
The night may be dark but hope very hard and dreams can come true
You live in silence but for once let's pretend
We're talking here together, let's be friends

You're not alone, I've always known that we'd get along
And someone I know says life is good and He can't be wrong
There's fun and laughter just waiting round the bend
Let's find them now together, let's be friends

Let's find them now together, let's be friends
Recorded: 1969/03/05, first released on Let's Be Friends

Nice, polite light ballad that Elvis doses as much with as anyone could. Worth a listen now and again, but not much more.

This song is take 3 and a work-part ending, whatever that means. A good song, sung very well. Nothing wrong with it.

A lovely simple ballad with a beautiful tune sung by Elvis in his relaxed tender style. Sure we had others of this type but I never get tired of listening to them. - 4 stars from me.

Nicely sung and yes it is better than the mid 60's movie ballads. Much better. What happened to his great simple soulful ballad voice by 1973? It seemed to be replaced by an operatic bombastic ballad voice. The breath control & unstrained vibrato here is fabulous and not eveident after 1973.

Elvis could do no wrong in 1968 & 1969. He sounded and looked amazing. The song, "Let's be Friends" is a beautiful simple gentle song, that Elvis sings with passion, and soul, and it works. Its a feel good song.

For me this is just an album filler. True it's sung with the smoky soulful voice Elvis had in 69 which helps lift the overall quality of the track but is this really all that better than some of the bland ballads he had recorded for the movies? I'm not so sure and I rarely listen to it. The piano starts to get on my nerves after a while if i do.

Really good song, and Elvis is in great voice! Melody and lyrics flow very good! This is a good example of how many great songs our man recorded that didn't get the play or recognition that it deserved! Anyhow, he is still The King, And making more and more fans every year! Nuff said!! TCB!!!

A song recorded for; but not included in the movie "Change of Habit". A pleasant song that Elvis sings with a rich deep voice. 3 1/2 stars

This is a nice song. Should have deserved better than to be released on a Camden!
