The calendar said the 30th day of June
Sinatra had the nation's No 1 tune
The Yanks led the American Leauge by a country mile
And I walked the floor as you gave birth to our first child

And when I thanked you for our first son
You just smiled and said the best is yet to come

I don't guess I've ever seen you cry
You saved money until my salvary wouldn't get us by
And it wasn't very long just a couple of years it seemed
We saved enough money and paid down on a five-room dream

And when I thanked you for all you had done
You just smiled and said honey the best is yet to come

Well just think Tony's away to school honey studying law
And do you remember Carrie we voted Queen of the prom that fall
Oh Lord we worked all winter long with Troy and in your mind there's no doubt
Who was the proudest one who was the proudest when he became an Eagle Scout

And when I thanked you for all you had done
You just smiled and said the best is yet to come

The calendar reads the first day of June
The paper says man has walked on the Moon
Now we're sitting here just waitin' alone
And we realize our lives are almost gone

So when we thanked our Lord for all he had done
He just said children the best the best is yet to come
