At words poetic I'm so pathetic
That I always have found it best
Instead of getting it off my chest
To let em rest unexpressed
I hate parading my serenading
As I'll probably miss a bar
But if this ditty is not so pretty
At least it'll tell you how great you are
Youre the top - you're the coliseum.
Youre the top -
Mmm you're the louvre museum.
Youre a melody from a symphony by strauss.
Youre a bendel bonnet, a shakespeare sonnet, you're mickey mouse.
Youre the nile - you're the tower of pisa.
Youre 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.

Youre the top, you're mahatma ghandi.
Youre the top - you are napoleon brandy.
Youre the purple light of a summer night in spain.
Youre the national gallery,
Youre garbos salary,
Youre cellophane.
You are sublime, you're a turkey dinner.
Youre the time - the time of the derby winner.
I'm a toy balloon that is fated soon to pop.
But if baby I'm the bottom, you're the top, top.

Steve, there is something I got to tell ya..
What is it judy?
Well, umm

Youre the top (I am?) - mmm you're a waldorf salad
Oh no, no let me say it
Youre the top (me too?) - you're a berlin ballad you're the nimble tread of
The feet of fred astaire
(actually I don't dance very well)
Youre an oneill drama, you're whistlers mother -
Mama (oh), you're camembert.
Youre a rose, (mmm. Sweet)
Youre infernos dante.
Youre the nose - watch it! I mean
Whatwhatwhawha what- on the great durante. That's better
I'm the lazy lout who is just about to storm lets not storm
But if baby I'm the bottom,
Shes the one for me
And I've got I'm
Coz if baby I'm the bottom,
Youre the top.
