lyrics

I guess I've got a heart meant
For fooling around with chicks
Cause in that love department
I know the latest tricks

I met a gal the other day,
She was as sharp as a gal could be
And I wasn't surprised to hear her say
How she really went for me

She said I was the best man
Whoever knocked on her door
She said I was the best man
The fella she was waiting for

She said I was the best man at dancing
And nobody can deny
And when it came to romancing
I was the A plus number 1 guy

Then she met my best friend
And knocked him right off his pins
But I wasn't worried
'Cause the best man always wins
The way it all turned out
There was no doubt
That I was the best man in the end
Yes, I was the best man
When she married my best friend

So don't you think you're the best
Till you pass the test
And you know all the latest tricks
Or you'll wind up as the best man
While the other guy gets the chicks
