lyrics

The best time that I ever had
Was in Hamburg, Germany
We crashed the party downstairs
We drank and danced till three

But that's not why I like you
No, that's not it at all
That's not why I like you

The best thing that I ever done
Was to call a friend in jail
The best thing that I ever done
Well, it slowly went to hell

But that's not why I like you
No, that's not it at all
That's not why I like you

The best book that I ever read
Was Steinbeck's Cannery Row
They grabbed life by the earlobes
And took it all in tow

But that's not why I like you
No, that's not it at all
That's not why I like you

The best haircut of my entire life
Was given me by you
And while that's insubstantial
That's just as well; it's true.

But that's not why I like you
No, that's not it at all
That's not why I like you
