Barbra Streisand - The Best Thing That Ever Has Happened Lyrics

"The Best Thing That Ever Has Happened" is a song from musical "Road Show" performed by
Barbra Streisand with Alec Baldwin. Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim.

First, there’s cocktails at the Cosden’s
Hun, we’ve got fish to fry.
Then, there’s dinner at the Dodges’, the reception at the Roosevelt’s
And every party filled with millionaires who want
To build the biggest villa since the days of Ancient Rome.
So what do you say we just stay home?

You are the best thing that ever has happened to me,
You are.
Alright then, one of the best things that’s happened to me.
You are.
They say we all find love.
I never bought it.
I never thought it would happen to me.
Who could foresee?
You are the god-damnd’est thing that has happened to me…
Ever.
When did I have this much happiness happen to me?
Never.
I can’t believe my luck.
And all I can do
Is be the best thing that’s happened to you.

So what do you say we just stay home?
What do you say we just go out on the boat and get smashed
And make love on the beach and stare up at the moon?
You might just be the best thing that has happened to me,
So far.
Of course, not much ever really has happened to me,
So far.
I didn’t much like love.
I always fought it.
I never thought it would happen like this…
Give us a kiss.
We might just be the best thing that has happened to us,
Partner.
Another moment like this might not happen to us,
Lover.
When all is said and done,
I have to agree,
You are the best thing that’s happened to me.
Who knew?
Who dreamed?
Beats me.
