The best I ever did with my life:
‘said just three honest words to you.
Three droplets in a pail of lies,
three gems among the alibis.
Yes, I know the ways and means I are, Ma.
Yes I know the ways and means I are.
The best I ever did with my love:
‘said your name on the microphone.
You heard it the restaurant,
cashed out and brought your tips on home.
The best I ever did with my bucks:
put two down on your horse to show.
She lost but just kept racing ‘round,
kept running ‘til the sun went down.
