Best Is Yet To Come
Dick Curless

The calendar said 30th day of June
Sinatra had the nation's No 1 tune
The Yanks let the American Leauge by a country mile
And I walked the floor as she gave birth to our child

And when I thanked her for our first son
She just smiled and said the best is yet to come

I don't guess I've ever seen her cry
She saved money when my salvary wouldn't get us by
It wasn't very long just a couple of years it seemed
We saved enough to pay down on a five-room dream

And when I thanked her for all she'd done
She just smiled and said the best is yet to come

Ricky's away to school he's studying law
Terry was voted Queen of the prom that fall
We worked all winter with Gray but there was no doubt
Who was the proudest one when he became an Eagle Scout

And when I thanked her for all she'd done
She just smiled and said the best is yet to come

The calendar says first day of June
And the paper reads man has walked on the room
We're sitting here just waiting alone
As we realize our lives are almost gone

So we thanked our Lord for all he'd done
And he said children the best is yet to come
