I'm the best thing
That never happened
I'm the best thing
You never had
You're the best thing
That never happened
That never happened
It's really too bad
And I was the last thing
That you ever wanted
I'm the best thing
You never had

You were the first one
To turn me on
To turn me on fast
To turn me down flat
Cause I was the last thing
That you ever wanted
Still the best thing you never had
Now you don't know
What you're missing
You'll never know what you had
You'll never know what you're missing
Oh yeah

I was the best thing
That never happened
The best thing you never had
You want the pick of the litter
Don't go away bitter
Now I wouldn't do that
I was the last thing
That you ever wanted
The best thing
You'll never have
And I'm the best thing
That never happened
The best thing
You'll never have
The best thing
You'll never have
