Текст оригинала на английском языке
Good - Better - Best
When young, in tones quite positive I said, "The world shall see That I can keep myself from sin; A good man I will be." But when I loved Miss Kate St. Clair 'Twas thus my musing ran: "I cannot be compared with her; I'll be a better man." 'Twas at the wedding of a friend (He married Kate St. Clair) That I became superlative, For I was "best man" there.
