You're The Top Lyrics
ETHEL MERMAN Lyrics

At words poetic, I'm so pathetic

That I always have found it best,

Instead of getting 'em 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.



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 Shakespeart 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.



Now gifted humans like Vincent Youmans

Might think that your song is bad,

But for a person who's just rehearsin'

Well I gotta say this my lad:



You're the top!

You're Mahatma Ghandi.

You're the top!

You're Napolean brandy.

You're the purple light

Of a summer night in Spain,

You're the National Gall'ry,

You're Garbo's sal'ry,

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 is fated soon to pop.

But if, Baby, I'm the bottom,

You're the top!



You're the top!

You're a Ritz hot toddy.

You're the top!

You're a Brewster body.

You're the boats that glide

On the sleepy Zuider Zee,

You're a Nathan Panning,

You're Bishop Manning,

You're broccoli.

You're a prize,

You're a night at Coney,

You're the eyes of Irene Bordoni,

I'm a broken doll,

A fol-de-rol, a blop,

But if, Baby, I'm the bottom,

You're the top.



You're the top!

You're an Arrow collar.

You're the top!

You're a Coolidge dollar.

You're the nimble tread

Of the feet of Fred Astaire,

You're an O'Neill drama,

You're Whistler's mama,

You're Camembert.

You're a rose,

You're Inferno's Dante,

You're the nost of the great Durante.

I'm just in the way,

As the French would say

"De trop,"

But if, Baby, I'm the bottom,

You're the top.



You're the top!

You're a Waldorf salad.

You're the top!

You're a Berlin ballad.

You're a baby grand

Of a lady and a gent.

You're an old dutch master,

You're Mrs. Aster,

You're Pepsodent.

You're romance,

You're the steppes of Russia,

You're the pants on a Roxy usher.

I'm a lazy lout

That's just about to stop,

But if Baby,

I'm the bottom,

You're the top!



You're the top!

You're a dance in Bali.

You're the top!

You're a hot tamale.

You're an angel,

you simply too, too, too divine,

You're a Botticelli,

You're Keats, You're Shelley,

You're Ovaltine.

You're a boon,

You're the dam at Boulder,

You're the moon

Over Mae West's shoulder.

I'm a nominee of the G.O.P. or GOP,

But if, Baby, I'm the bottom,

You're the top!



You're the top!

You're the Tower of Babel.

You're the top!

You're the Whitney Stable.

By the River Rhine,

You're a sturdy stein of beer,

You're a dress from Saks's,

You're next year's taxes,'

You're stratosphere.

You're my thoist,

You're a Drumstick Lipstick,

You're da foist

In da Irish svipstick,

I'm a frightened frog

That can find no log to hop,

But if, Baby,

I'm the bottom,

You're the top!
