Writer(s): Cy Coleman / Carolyn Leigh

Out of the tree of life, I just picked me a plumb
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 won’t that 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 out lips have met
Wait till you see that sunshine day, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet
The best is yet to come, and won’t that be fine
The best is yet to come, come the day that you’re mine
Come the day that you’re mine, I’m gonna teach you to fly
We’ve only tasted the wine, we’re gonna drain that cup dry
Wait till your charms are right, for the 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 hold you near
Wait till you see that sunshine place, there ain’t nothin’ like it here
The best is yet to come, and won’t that be fine
The best is yet to come, come the day that your mine
