about

About time I wrote a love song for my long suffering wife, mother of my two beautiful kids & killer percussionist.

lyrics

The Best Thing

F
I’ve 2 strong arms to hold you tight & keep you from harm on the darkest of nights
Bb F
Though I’m not a fighter, I’d fight to the end for you
I’ve qualifications, diplomas, degrees from august institutions & academies
Certified by universities if ever you need to see proof

Dm F C
Any claims that I make. wether honest or fake are only there to hide the truth
I could set out my stall, try to fool them all but really what’s the use

Bb F C
When all are agreed & I’m proud to concede that in all likelihood it is true
Gm Bb C F
That the best thing about me is you

I’m no DiCaprio, Clooney or Pitt, a face from a Crimewatch Photofit
I try to make up with my sparkling wit & sometimes that’s what I do
My sporting prowess is legend in my mind but my best football days are now decades behind me
Those premiership scouts must all’ve been blind, my potential was spotted by you

Any claims that I make. wether honest or fake are only there to hide the truth
I could set out my stall, try to fool them all but really what’s the use

It’s the word on the street & everyone you meet subscribes to the same point of view
The best thing about me is you

Instrumental (over FBbF x4, C,Bb x2 then return to F)

Dm
The best thing
F
The best thing
Dm
The best thing
F
The best thing
Gm Bb C
The best thing about me is you


All are agreed & I’m proud to concede that in all likelihood it is true
It’s the word on the street & everyone you meet subscribes to the same point of view
Gm Bb C
The best thing about me is you
Gm Bb C F
The best thing about me is you
