Out of the tree of life, I just picked me a plum
You came along and everything started to hum
Still it’s a real good bet, the best is yet to come

The best is yet to come and babe won’t it be fine
You think you’ve seen the sun but you ain’t seen it shine

Wait till the warm-up is underway, wait till our lips have met
Wait till you see that sunshine day, you ain’t seen nothin' yet

The best is yet to come and babe won’t it be fine
The best is yet to come, come the day you’re mine

Come the day you’re mine, I’m gonna teach you to fly
We’ve only tasted the wine, we’re gonna drain the cup dry
Wait till your charms are right for these arms to surround
You think you’ve flown before but you ain’t left the ground

Wait till you’re locked in my embrace, wait till I draw you near
Wait till you see that sunshine place, there ain’t nothin' like it here

The best is yet to come and babe won’t it be fine
The best is yet to come, come the day you’re mine

Come the day you’re mine, I’m gonna teach you to fly
We’ve only tasted the wine, we’re gonna drain the cup dry
Wait till your charms are right for these arms to surround
You think you’ve flown before but you ain’t left the ground

Wait till you’re locked in my embrace, wait till I draw you near
Wait till you see that sunshine place, there ain’t nothin' like it here

The best is yet to come and babe won’t it be fine
The best is yet to come, come the day you’re mine
Come the day you’re mine, come the day you’re mine
The best is yet to come
