The Best Thing For You 
( Would Be Me )

I only want what's the best thing for you,
and the best thing for you would be me.
I've been convinced after thinking it through,
that the best thing for you would be me.

Everyday to myself I say,
point the way, what will it be?
I ask myself, what's the best thing for you?
And myself and I seem to agree,
that the best thing for you would be me.

< instrumental bridge >

Everyday to myself I say,
point the way, what will it be?
I ask myself, what's the best thing for you?
And myself and I seem to agree,
that the best thing for you would be me.

~ from the 1950 Broadway musical "Call Me Madam"

Words and Music by Irving Berlin , 1950
