Barbra Streisand & Ryan O'Neal doing a Cole Porter cover for the beginning/closing credits of Peter Bogdanovich's screwball masterpiece, "What's Up Doc?" which he states was heavily influenced by the Cary Grant/Katherine Hepburn classic, "Bringing Up Baby".

Cole Porter

At words poetic, I'm so pathetic
That I always have found it best,
Instead of getting it 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 Louvre Museum.
You're a melody from a symphony by Strauss
You're a Bendel bonnet,
A Shakespeare's 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!

You're the top!
You're Mahatma Gandhi.
You're the top!
You are 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 are sublime,
You're turkey dinner,
You're the time, 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 Waldorf salad.
You're the top!
You're a Berlin Ballad
You're the nimble tread
Of the feet of Fred Astaire,
You are an O'Neill 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 a lazy lout,
who is just about to stop

But if, baby, I'm the bottom,
She's the one for me,
and I've got him
'cause if, baby, I'm the bottom,

You're the top!
