Lyrics:

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.

The 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.

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?
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 baby, 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,
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.
