You're The Top

In the style of

Anything Goes (Broadway Version)

Lyrics

at words poetic
i'm so pathetic
that i have always
found it best

instead of
getting 'em
off my chest
to let 'em rest
unexpressed

i hate paradin'
my serenadin'
as i'll probably
miss a bar
but if my ditty
is not so pretty
at least it'll tell you
how great you are

you're the top
you're the coliseum
you're the top
you're the
louvre museum

you're the melody
from a symphony
by strauss
you're a
bendel bonnet
a shakespeare
sonnet
you're mickey mouse

you're the nile
you're the
tower of pisa
you're the smile
on the mona lisa

i'm a worthless check
a total wreck a flop
but if baby
i'm the bottom
you're the top

your words poetic
are not pathetic
on the other hand
boy you shine
and i can feel
after every line
a thrill divine
down my spine

some critical meanie
like toscanini
might think
that your song is bad
but i got a notion
i'll second the motion
and this is what
i'm goin' to add

you're the top
you're a
silver dollar
you're the top
you're an
arrow collar

you're the
nimble tread
of the feet
of fred astaire

you're an
o'neal drama
you're
whistler's mama
you're camembert

you're the pearl
that the
divers fetch up
milton berle
and tomato ketchup

i'm a toy balloon
that's fated soon
to pop
but if baby
i'm the bottom
you're the top

you're the top
you're a
caesar salad
you're the top
ha
you're a
berlin ballad

you're the boy
i'd swipe
for the perfect
type of male
you're an
old dutch master
you're lady astor
you're chippendale

you're a rose
you're
inferno's dante
you're the nose
on the great durante
i'm just in the way
as the french
would say de trop

but if baby
i'm the bottom
but if baby
i'm the bottom
but if baby
i'm the bottom
you're the top

you're the top
you're a
new invention
you're the top
ha
you're the
fourth dimension

you're the
purple light
of a summer night
in spain

you're the
national gallery
you're
garbo's salary
you're cellophane

you're romance
you're the steppes
of russia
you're the pants
on a roxy usher

i'm a broken doll
a folderol
a flop
but if baby
i'm the bottom
you're the top
