You’re the top
You’re the Daily Planet
You’re the top
You are Brad and Janet
You’re a hackney carriage to an all night garage for snacks
You’re the Cornish coast
You’re poached egg on toast
You’re Crackerjack

You press play
You’re dynamic tension
You’re a day of Shermer High detention
I’m a dog’s behind, a fast rewind, pause and stop
But if, baby, I’m the bottom, you’re the top

You’re such fun
You’re a rollercoaster
Known to some
People as Figtoaster
You’re an X-wing fighter shaped refillable lighter: a gas
A pair of Elvis glasses
Nude life drawing classes
One heck of a lass

You’re a brick
You’re Van Gogh’s Sunflowers
One hot chick with awesome superpowers
I’m a bit of an arse, writing songs in class like a fop

But oh, Bea, if I’m the bottom, you’re the top!
