Bennett, Tony - The Best Is Yet To Come Lyrics



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's 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
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, ho-ho,
Out of the tree of life I just picked me a plum...[fade]

Bennett, Tony The Best Is Yet To Come Comments
  1. Robert Silvestri

    @BestFitSquareChannel: Was the applause at the end an added sound effect or was this from a live performance?

    Robert Silvestri

    @Best Fit Square Channel Thank you. (Y)

  2. cclady222

    Tony is Legend

  3. Fernando Lopes

    Magnific Music

  4. Jared Beatley

    I never hear anyone talk about his screw up at 2:06 when he gets a tickle in his throat

  5. Jerry Besco

    This song was given to Frank Sinatra first. Frank sat on it and Tony recorded and released it first.

    Best Fit Square Channel

    Jerry Besco ... wow... this specific recording has been part of life soundtrack... 40+ years, countless plays. Best wishes Jerry...

    Neil Mak

    No, it was not. Cy Coleman wrote the song especially for Tony and he was the first to record it. Frank was an also-ran on this number...

    I don't even know why but I love his voice. I'm 14 and people tell me I'm too young to know about him.

    Good for you it is only in the past several years that I truly started to enjoy Tony. The fact I'm a big Mr. S fan may of played a part in that.

    Dr Joey

    You've got good taste, son.

    Jomilly Xavier

    Welcome to the team, buddy... He's amazing

  10. Ralph Garrett

    God is blessing you in a mighty way.

    I think I've heard this version of this song from a commercial I saw on TV back when I was a child. I can't remember the name of the commercial with this song in it. Anybody got a clue??

  13. Varlice1

    Parabéns, Tony, pelos seus 90 anos.

  14. TheMadisonMachine

    I work at a pizza place with heavy leanings towards other Italian food. I hear this song at least every 45 minutes, not even an exaggeration.

    Julia T

    TheMadisonMachine hahahahah

    Dr Joey

    Could have been worse. Where I play 3-cushion billiards they CONSTANTLY play Stairway to Heaven, the REALLY horrible live version.

  15. Omar Usmani

    Sinatras is better. The skill in Bennett's singing may be superior for the best is yet to come, but sinatras voice and style is more impressionable and plus he sang with much better musicians: the count Basie /Quincy jones arrangement and band. Still Bennett's is amazing too.

    Judith B

    Funny I just listened to both and thought Tony was better. 😊

    Nick Riggio

    put away whatever it is you are smoking! It makes you say strange things.

    Steven Kaye

    sinatra once said he would have loved to sing like Tony
    Tony could record an album while changing the exhaust on his car.

    Nick Riggio

    Who cares what or who you prefer? I much prefer Tony to the guy you like. You are wrong to say he sang with better musicians. Where did you get that from> Its plain and simple that you know NOTHING about Tony Bennett yet you feel in the need to denigrate him because you are a brainwashed sinatra fan. And that is your right. But why do it on a Bennett page?
