YourTheTopGlee
Album: Glee: The Music, The Complete Season Three
Released: February 14, 2012
By: Cast of Anything Goes
Sung by: Hiram Berry, LeRoy Berry, and Rachel Berry (episode version only)
Place: The Berry House
Episode: Heart

You're the Top from Anything Goes is featured in Heart, the thirteenth episode of Season Three. It is sung by Hiram, LeRoy, and Rachel during the episode.

They sing it at a dinner party to celebrate Finn and Rachel's engagement. During the song, Finn and Carole seem to enjoy the performance, and Burt seems to look surprised. Finn, in particular, asks why Carole, Burt, and himself never did this before dinner, a question which Burt quickly dismisses. Burt looks like he's been put in an awkward position during the performance.

Lyrics

Leroy:
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,

Hiram and Leroy:
At least it'll tell you how great you are.

Hiram:
You're the top! Leroy,
You're the Coliseum.

Leroy:
You're the top! Oh, baby,
You're the Louvre Museum.
You're a melody from a symphony by Strauss!

Hiram:
You're a Bendel bonnet,

Leroy:
A Shakespeare's sonnet,
You're Mickey Mouse! (hahahahaha!)

Hiram:
You're the Nile,

Leroy:
You're the Tower of Pisa,

Hiram:
You're the smile

Leroy:
On the Mona Lisa
I'm a worthless check,

Hiram:
A total wreck,

Hiram and Leroy:
A flop!
But if, baby, I'm the bottom you're the top!

Hiram:
You're the top, Leroy!

Leroy:
You're Mahatma Gandhi, Hiram!

Hiram:
You're the top!

Leroy:
You're Napoleon Brandy.
               
Hiram and Leroy:
You're the purple light
Of a summer night in Spain,

Leroy:
You're the National Gallery,

Hiram:
You're Garbo's salary,
                
Hiram and Leroy:
You're cellophane!

Hiram:
You're sublime,

Leroy:
You're a turkey dinner!

Hiram:
You're the time,

Leroy:
Of a Derby winner!
I'm a toy balloon that’s fated soon to pop!

Hiram and Leroy:
But if, baby, I'm the bottom,
But if, baby, I'm the bottom,
You're the top!
You're the top!

Leroy:
You're an arrow collar

Hiram:
Leroy, You're the top!
You're a Coolidge dollar,

Hiram and Leroy:
You're the nimble tread
Of the feet of Fred Astaire,

Leroy:
You're an O'Neill drama,

Hiram:
You're Whistler's mama!

Leroy:
You're camembert.

Hiram:
You're a rose,
You're Inferno's Dante,

Leroy:
You're the nose,
On the great Durante.

Hiram:
I'm just in the way,
As the French would say,

Hiram and Leroy:
"de trop"!
But if, baby, I'm the bottom,
But if, baby, I'm the bottom,
But if, baby, I'm the bottom,
You're the top!

Leroy:
You're a Waldorf salad.

Hiram:
You're just the top!
You're a Berlin ballad.

Leroy:
You're the boats that glide
On the sleepy Zuider Zee,

Hiram:
You're an old Dutch master,

Leroy:
You're Lady Astor,

Hiram:
Baby, you're broccoli!

Leroy:
You're romance,
You're the steppes of Russia,

Hiram:
You're the pants, (purr), on a Roxy usher,

Hiram and Leroy:
I'm a broken doll, a fol-de-rol, a blop,
But if, baby, I'm the bottom,
But if, baby, I'm the bottom,
But if, baby, I'm the bottom,
You're the top!
