Your The Top

Everything i Changed is italicized and underlined.

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 Coliseum, 
You’re the top! 
You’re the  Museum. 
You’re a melody from a symphony by Strauss 
You’re a Facebook status, 
A Shakespeare’s sonnet, 
You’re Mickey Mouse. 

You’re the Nile, 
You’re the Tower of Druaga
You’re the mile of the Naked Mile
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 Muhammad ali
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 is fated soon to pop 
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 Twitter tread 
Of the feet of Fred Astaire, 
You’re a TNT drama, 
You’re Whistler’s mama, 
You’re Camembert. 

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, 
You’re the top!

  1. To explain why i chose each of these references is due to the particular for each one. Starting with Facebook, i chose Facebook due to the fact that is is one if not the most visited website. The second was the Tower of Druaga which was an arcade game in the 80″s but was remade into an amazing anime that is well known in some sub culture. The Naked mile is an event that is Held by Particular Universities and are where a group of people run a mile naked during the winter semester. This idea got adopted by one of the American pie movies. Muhammad ali is a well know boxer that has won many awards.
