The Capitol record label cites: The Best Man, The King Cole Trio, Vocal by King Cole.** I guess I've got a heart meant Foolin' around with chicks, 'Cause in the love department I know all the latest tricks! Now, I ran across a girl one day, She was sharp as a girl could be, And I wasn't surprised to hear her say That she really went for me! She said I was the best man Who ever knocked on her door. She said I was the best man, The fella she waited for! She said I was the best man at dancin', And nobody can deny That when it came to romancin', I was the A-plus number one guy! But then she met my best friend And knocked him right off his pins. But still I wasn't worried, 'Cause the best man always wins! The way it all turned out, There was no doubt That I was best man in the end. Yes, I was the best man When she married my best friend! Man, she met my best friend And knocked him right off his pins. But still I wasn't worried, 'Cause the best man always wins! The way it all turned out, There was no doubt That I was best man in the end. Yes, I was the best man When she married my best friend! So don't think you're best Till you pass the test, And you know all the latest tricks, 'Cause you'll wind up as the best man, While the other guy gets the chicks!
