Best Man's Toast to the Bride & Groom
It all started out on a warm summer day,
Chris was out cruisin' with her best friend Renee
Renee had a friend that lived close by,
So they stopped in, just to say Hi
Todd came to the door and thought
Who is this?
Renee introduced her as her best friend Chris
He thought she was cute,
She thought he was funny
For a bike ride they'd go,
On a day so sunny
Through the summer they talked,
And walked side by side
Their feelings were growing,
The kind you can't hide
And now we're all here
Cuz of that day in the sun
What used to be two,
Has now become one
