IRVING BERLIN lyrics - The Best Thing For You Would Be Me

IRVING BERLIN
"The Best Thing For You Would Be Me"

[Verse:]
Please let me say from the start
I don't pretend to be smart
I just suggest what I think best
Having your int'rest at heart

[Refrain:]
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

Ev'ry day
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
