OPENER    Mainstream

Circle left
Who wipes me off when I get gravy on my shirt
Who knows exactly where to kiss me when I hurt

Allemande the corner, turn thru and then
Left allemande the corner, weave the ring
Who's just as gentle as a sparrow in my hand
Dosado and now promenade again
Who's meaner than a junkyard dog fightin' for her man
You babe, you're my bestest friend


FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

All four ladies chain across, couples 1 & 3 (2 & 4)
Promenade outside halfway around for me
Get down the middle square thru 4 hands you go
When you get there swing thru
Boys run around the girl, half tag, trade and roll
Swing the corner lady, promenade on home
Who's the only girl I'll ever love or understand
You babe, you're my bestest friend


FIGURE    Mainstream, no progression

Heads (sides) promenade halfway
Lead right, circle to a line
Pass the ocean, scoot back
Spin chain thru, boys circulate two
Swing and promenade
Who's the only girl I'll ever love and understand
You babe, you're my bestest friend


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Circle left
Who holds me up when I get too drunk to stand
Who really believes she should stand beside her man

Allemande the corner, turn thru and then
Left allemande the corner, weave the ring
Who comes down to bail me out when I get in a jam
Dosado and now promenade again
Who helps me tell the police where I live and who I am
You babe, you're my bestest friend


CLOSER    Mainstream

Circle left
Who's always smilin', never acting cross
Who always says 'I done it' when everybody's lost

Allemande the corner, turn thru and then
Left allemande the corner, weave the ring
Who bravely puts up with my uncles and my aunts
Dosado and now promenade again
Who discretely whispers "you forgot to zip your pants"
You babe, you're my bestest friend

I'm talkin' about you, babe, you're my bestest friend

You're My Bestest Friend

Well who wipes me off when I get gravy on my shirt?
And who knows exactly where to kiss me when I hurt?
And who'd make love with me on satin sheets or in the dirt?
You babe, you're my bestest friend

Who takes me home when I get too drunk to dance?
And who bravely puts up with my uncles and my aunts?
And who discreetly whispers I forgot to zip my pants?
You babe, you're my bestest friend

And who comes down and bails me out when I get in a jam?
And helps me tell the police where I live and who I am?
And who pats my back when no one else could give a damn?
You babe, you're my bestest friend

And who can be as gentle as a sparrow in my hand
Meaner than a junkyard dog when she's fighting for her man?
And who's the only one I'll ever love or understand?
You babe, you're my bestest friend

Talking about you babe, you're my bestest friend

Lyrics by Mac Davis.
