Until Then_I'll Be Best Man

My friend asked me to be his best man

Telling him I would was very hard for me to do

Because he doesn't know I love his fiancee too.

She was my girl long before the two of them met

Until we quarreled like lover's sometimes do

Then in anger she told me we were through.

I still love her knowing she'll never be mine

I guess some things in life just aren't meant to be

Maybe one day some girls heart I'll find the key.

Until then_I'll be best man.
