Out of the tree of life I just picked me a plum

You came along and everything's startin' to hum

Still, it's a real good bet, the best is yet to come

 

Best is yet to come and babe, won't that be fine?

You think you've seen the sun, but you ain't seen it shine

 

a-Wait till the warm-up's underway

Wait till our lips have met

And 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?

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 baby, you ain't left the ground

 

a-Wait till you're locked in my embrace

Wait till I draw you near

a-Wait till you see that sunshine place

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

And you're gonna be mine
