You're The Top

	  		As performed in the 2011 revival of Anything Goes (F  M, and B denote Female, Male and 'Both') 
F: 
   Bb           Bdim Cm7   F7 
At words poetic, I'm so pathetic  
       Bb           C#dim   G7 
That I always have found it best,  
   Gaug    Cm                 Eb  F7 
Instead of getting 'em off my chest,  
           Bb   Cm7 F7 
To let 'em rest unexpressed,  
  Bb            Bdim Cm7  F7 
I hate parading my   serenading  
        Bb        Gm7   A7 
As I'll probably miss a bar,  
    Dm      Gm6      Dm     C7 
But if this ditty is not so pretty  
   F7                                     Faug 
At least it'll tell you how great you are.  

Bb               F7 
  You're the top!  You're the Coliseum. 
Bb           Gm  D7 
  You're the top!  You're the Louvre Museum.  
Eb         Cm7 F7           Bb    F  Gm  
  You're a melody from a symphony by Strauss  
         A7     Dm        G9            C7           F7          Faug 
You're a Bendel bonnet, a Shakespeare sonnet, you're Mickey Mouse.  
Bb                F7 
  You're the Nile,  you're the Tower of Pisa,  
Bb           Gm   Bb7      Bb9 
  You're the smile  on the Mona Lisa  
Eb      Cm7       F7      Ebmaj7 Gaug   G7 
  I'm a worthless check, a total wreck, a  flop,  
        Cm     Bb/D   Eb        F7      Bb  A7 
But if, baby, I'm the bottom you're the top!  

M: 
     D            Ebdim Em7     A7 
Your words poetic are   not pathetic.  
       D            Fdim     B7 
On the other hand, babe, you shine,  
    Baug  Em               G   A7 
And I can feel after every line  
           D    Em7     A7 
A thrill divine down my spine.  
    D             Ebdim Em7      A7 
Now gifted humans like  Vincent Youmans  
      D               Bm7     C#7 
Might think that your song is bad,  
    F#m        Bm6          F#m        E7 
But I've got a notion, I'll second the motion  
    A7                             Aaug 
And this is what I'm going to add: 

D                A7 
  You're the top!  You're Mahatma Gandhi.  
D            Bm  F#7 
  You're the top!  You're Napoleon Brandy.  
G            Em7    A7         D      A        Bm  
  You're the purple light of a summer night in Spain,  
           C#7      F#m             B9      E7             A7         Aaug 
You're the National Gallery, you're Garbo's salary, you're cellophane.  
D                A7 
  You're sublime,  you're turkey dinner,  
D            Bm   D7       D9 
  You're the time,  of the Derby winner  
G       Em7    A7          Gmaj7 Baug  B7  
  I'm a toy balloon that??s fated soon  to pop  
        Em     D/F#   G         A7      D   F7 
But if, baby, I'm the bottom you're the top!  

  Bb               F7 
F:  You're the top!  You're an arrow collar  
Bb           Gm  D7 
  You're the top!  You're a Coolidge dollar,  
Eb           Cm7    F7           Bb      F    Gm  
  You're the nimble tread of the feet of Fred Astaire,  
          A7      Dm              G9         C7             F7        Faug 
You're an O'Neill drama! M:You're Whistler's mama! F:You're Camembert.  
  Bb              F7 
M:  You're a rose,  you're Inferno's Dante,  
  Bb           Gm  Bb7      Bb9 
F:  You're the nose  on the great Durante.  
Eb         Cm7  F7          Ebmaj7       Gaug  G7 
  I'm just in a way, as the French would say, "de trop".  
        Cm     Bb/D   Eb        F7      Bb  Ab7
