  • Out of the tree of life I just picked me a plum
    You came along and everything started'in 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 til the warm up's under way
    Wait til our lips have met
    And wait til you see that sunshine day
    You ain't seen nothing 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 til your charms are right for these arms, to surround
    You think you've flown before
    But baby you ain't left the ground

    Wait till you're locked in my embrace
    Wait til I draw you near
    And wait til you see that sunshine place
    Ain't nothing 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 Writer/s: Carolyn Leigh, Cy Coleman
