Three Choruses

1

You're the top!
You're the Bard of Avon.
You're the top!
You're a lyric maven.
You're a Hershey's kiss,

you're de Milo's missing arms.

You're a frisky kitten

and I think I'm smitten

by your subtle charms!

You're the choice
of my aging ticker,
and your voice
gets me going quicker!
I'm a graybeard gruff
who should know enough to stop,
but if honey, I'm the bottom,
you're the top!

You're the track
in a Seventies disco.
You're a snack ---

you're the whole Nabisco!
You're a sidewalk star,
you're a cheap dive bar, it's true!
You're a big old belly
full of Ghirardelli.
I'm in love with you!

Oh, you're fine!
You're a cardigan sweater.
And you're mine.
Well, that's even better!
I'm a scurvy knave
who could rant and rave all night,
but if baby, I'm a crackpot,
you're all right!

You're a song
by the great Cole Porter.
(Am I wrong?
Am I out of orter?)
You're a high-heeled shoe

made by Jimmy Choo, c'est vrai!

You're a Bunsen burner,
you're a Loewe that's Lerner,
you're Tanqueray! 

I'm the wreck

of the Ed Fitzgerald,

shot to heck

with my health imperilled.

I'm an ill-bred oaf
who can laze and loaf all day,
but darlin', lemme tell ya,
you're OK!

Ooh yes, the tops, as Friend D. says. This is exuberant and a lot of fun, Tommo; and members of Coo & Co also appreciate the rhymes. We had more than a few chuckles throughout, not least at 'de Milo's missing arms' and the notion that a person might resemble a Bunsen burner. That is mighty fine :>)
