I'm the best thing
That never happened
I'm the best thing
You never had

You're the best thing
That never happened
That never happened
It's really too bad

And I was the last thing
That you ever wanted
I'm the best thing
You never had

You were the first one
To turn me on
To turn me on fast
To turn me down flat

You were the first one
To turn me on fast
To turn me on fast
To turn me down flat

'Cause I was the last thing
That you ever wanted
Still the best thing you never had

Now you don't know
What you're missing
You'll never know what you had
You'll never know what you're missing, oh yeah

I was the best thing
That never happened
The best thing you never had

But you want all the pick of the litter
Don't go away bitter
Now I wouldn't do that

I was the last thing
You ever wanted
The best thing
You'll never have

Baby, the best thing
That never happened
The best thing
You'll never have
The best thing
You'll never have
