Hear Luke Combs' Buoyant 'Let's Just Be Friends' From 'The Angry Birds Movie 2'

Luke Combs' summer of song reveals continued today (Aug. 2) with "Let's Just Be Friends," a soundtrack cut for upcoming animated film The Angry Birds Movie 2.

The upbeat, clap-along tune written by Combs, Jonathan Singleton and Jessi Alexander serves two desired purposes: It's another rocking country crowd-pleaser for grown-ups wanting to hoist their red Solo cups during Combs' set, and its lyrics tell a kid-friendly message of acceptance. Once the film arrives on DVD and blu-ray, those two qualities will cause children to dance and air guitar around the living room while they're learning why they should overlook perceived differences.

The Angry Birds Movie 2 hits theaters on Aug. 16. Voice actors with ties to the music world include Awkwafina and Nicki Minaj.

For Combs, the soundtrack cut continues a blockbuster summer, defined so far by his July 16 induction as the Grand Ole Opry's newest member.

"Let's Just Be Friends" Lyrics:

You're from one side of the tracks
And I live on the other
Why we don't see eye to eye
Really ain't no wonder
But you got the rock and I got the roll
You got the heart and I got the soul

So let's just be friends
Ain't gotta fight about it
Let's find our way around it
Let's just be friends
Hey, what do you say
If we don't even know what we were fussin' about
Don't you think it's time we work it out
Let's just be friends
Hey, let's just be friends

Yeah, we're pretty good alone
But I bet that together
We could make some noise this town
Would talk about forever
We've been back and forth and pickin' sides
When you ain't wrong and I ain't right

So let's just be friends
Ain't gotta fight about it
Let's find our way around it
Let's just be friends
Hey, what do you say
If we don't even know what we were fussin' about
Don't you think it's time we work it out
Let's just be friends
Hey, let's just be friends

You're big city and I'm small town
The best of both worlds is what it sounds like

Let's just be friends
Aw, let's just be friends

Let's just be friends
Ain't gotta fight about it
Let's find our way around it
Let's just be friends
Hey, what do you say
If we don't even know what we were fussin' about
Don't you think it's time we work it out
Let's just be friends
Hey, let's just be friends

Aw, let's just be friends
