Lyrics
You're the top, you're the Colosseum
You're the top, you're the Louvre Museum
You're a 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 Tow'r 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

You're the top, you're Mahatma Gandhi
You're the top, you're Napoleon brandy
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 sublime, you're a Turkey dinner
You're the time, of the Derby Winner
I'm a toy balloon that's fated soon to pop
But if baby, I'm by the bottom
You're the top
