THE BEST OF EVERYTHING

dear st. valentine you've really
set me up this time
it seems you've filled my heart up
with a boy that's on the climb
and i am just a ladder rung
to where he wants to be

oh i do not stand a chance
cause love is not the question here
it's the fortune that i bring
he needs the best of everything
oh i do not stand a chance
why should he settle for a common girl
when he can be a king
he needs the best of everything
Oh he needs the best of everything
the best of everything

dear st valentine would you please
take back my desire
cause i don't have enough of
what a boy like this requires
way down deep inside my heart
i still feel he's the one

oh i do not stand a chance
he's singularly unimpressed
with the words of love i sing
he needs the best of everything
oh i do not stand a chance
i only thought i was helping him
now i'm dangling from his string
he needs the best of everything
Oh he needs the best of everything
the best of everything

and tell him one thing
he ain't never gonna find
that's a girl who would love him
as much as I
as much as I

oh i do not stand a chance
cause love is not the question here
it's the fortune that i bring
he needs the best of everything
oh i do not stand a chance
why should he settle for a common girl
when he can be a king
he needs the best of everything
Oh he needs the best of everything
the best of everything
