"Best Thing in Town" as written by and Billie Joe/pritchard Armstrong....
Come with me and let's go for a ride
Follow me to the other side
As I sit around and watch you pout

Cause I know that you're the
Best thing in town -- Best thing around
Best thing in town -- Best thing around

Running wild and always running free
Doing things that I have never seen
Eerie colors and all I see are sounds

Now I know that you're the
Best thing in town -- Best thing around
Best thing in town -- Best thing around

I'm seeing faces...
Of mystery's of the earth
I am not one ...
To the aspersions of my birth
Or go to stance...
Of hallucinations I can't find
A missing piece...
Of a thought that's in my mind

Come with me and let's go for a ride
Follow me to the other side
As I sit around and watch you pout

Cause I know that you're the
Best thing in town -- Best thing around
Best thing in town -- Best thing around

Running wild and always running free
Doing things that I have never seen
Eerie colors and all I see are sounds

Now I know that you're the
Best thing in town -- Best thing around
Best thing in town -- Best thing around

(Billie mumbling:)
Sick and tired of all this wild SHIT!!

    General CommentThis song, as well as much of Kerplunk, is very under-rated. I'm not a huge fan of love songs, but I really like this one.

    General CommentI think Billie Joe is the best song writer ever. No he doesn't write about love, he writes about mainly being rejected, and being alone, don't you read the lyrics?

    This song is about a girl Billie thought was the best thing in town, as stated above.
