"The Best Thing About Me Is You" lyrics

LOS ANGELES, CA - NOVEMBER 09: Ricky Martin po...Ricky Martin (Image by Getty Images via @daylife)


I’m as happy as I can be
Cause I’m allergic to tragedy
The doctor says something’s wrong with me
The smile on my face has no remedy

So Baby, don’t say no
Come on and just say yes
You know it’s time to keep it simple
Let’s take a chance and hope for the best

Life is short, so make it what you wanna
Make it good, don’t wait until mañana
I think I’m cool cause your name’s on this heart shaped tattoo 
Now the best thing about me is you

I cryin’ days are now history [history]
I had a change of philosophy [philosophy]
I take each day as it comes to me
And I won’t take myself all that seriously

So Baby, don’t say no
Come on and just say yes
You know it’s time to keep it simple
Let’s take a chance, and hope for the best

Life is short, so make it what you wanna
Make it good, don’t wait until mañana
I think I’m cool cause your name’s on this heart shaped tattoo 

Now, the best thing about me is you.
It’s you
Oh baby, now I see it’s you
(Now the best thing, the best thing)
Oh yes it is
(It’s true)

Take off your shoes, lay back, and take a load off
Give me your blues, let me love it away
Nothing to lose, so don’t act like such a grownup
Stay out all night in the moonlight with me

(Don’t say no; don’t say no)
Come on and just say yes
You know it’s time to keep it simple
Let’s take a chance and hope for the best

Life is short, so make it what you wanna
Make it good, don’t wait until mañana
I think I’m cool cause your name’s on this heart shaped tattoo 
Now the best thing about me is you

It’s you
Now the best thing, the best thing, the best thing
About me is you
Now the best thing about me is you.

The best thing about me is you.
The best thing about me is you.

The best thing about me is you.

     "The Best Thing About Me Is You" is a song by the Puerto Rican recording artist Ricky Martin, taken from his ninth studio album Música + Alma + Sexo. It was released as the lead single from the album to iTunes on November 2, 2010. The song had earlier premiered on radio's Ryan Seacrest show. The original English version of the song features singer Joss Stone, while its Spanish version, "Lo Mejor de Mi Vida Eres Tú", replaces Stone's vocals with Natalia Jiménez.[1] Ricky Martin recorded also a Banda Remix of "Lo Mejor de Mi Vida Eres Tú" featuring Jenni Rivera. In Germany and Austria, "The Best Thing About Me Is You" featuring Edita was released. Martin performed this song with Stone for the first time on The Oprah Winfrey Show on November 2, 2010.
     Carlos Quintana from About.com, positively reviewed the track, saying: "this song is probably the most reflective, inspiring and positive of the whole album."[3] Ernesto Lechner from the Los Angeles Times said that "the lyrics of "The Best Thing About Me Is You," a duet with Joss Stone, sound a bit forced in English, the Spanish version of the tune crackles with bonhomie." Joey Guerra fromHouston Chronicle praised the Spanish version, saying: "he lightens up a bit on "Lo Mejor de Mi Vida Eres Tú", that boasts an easy chemistry." But criticise the English-language version, calling: "less successful" because of "Joss Stone’s habitual oversinging." Grace Bastidas from Latina said: "The first single from the album, "Lo Mejor de Mi Vida Eres Tú" features Spanish siren Natalia Jimenez—Joss Stone duets in the English-language track—and is the definition of happiness. There’s even some laughing and giggling at the end of the song in case you’re not already smiling."[6]Leila Cobo from Billboard said that the song is "a feel-good ditty over a happy reggae beat.” (source: Wikipedia)
