About The Best Is Yet to Come

"The Best Is Yet to Come" is a 1959 song composed by Cy Coleman, with lyrics written by Carolyn Leigh. It is generally associated with Frank Sinatra, who recorded it on his 1964 album It Might as Well Be Swing accompanied by Count Basie under the direction of Quincy Jones. It was the last song Sinatra sang in public, on February 25, 1995, and the words "The Best is Yet to Come" are etched on Sinatra's tombstone. Although Sinatra made it popular, the song was written for and introduced by Tony Bennett.

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

Out of the tree of life I just picked me a plum
You came along and everything started to hum
