Bottom's Gonna Be on Top

Bottom's Gonna Be on Top lyrics

Bottom's Gonna Be on Top

Nick:
No more Mr. Anonymous
No more world that is Nick Bottom-less
My name will be synonymous with being on the top

I can see it now
I'm the cat's meow
It's a hit pow!
It's gonna be great, gonna be great

Everywhere I go
They will love me so
Hail my name
Oh, it's gonna be great, gonna be great

Ensemble:
Master Bottom, you're such a wonderful writer
(You really think so?)
And your talent is talent beyond compare
(Why thank you)
If you're the star you are you couldn't be any more brighter
(Now you're just embarrassing me!)
You're a real visionary

Nick:
Thank you Jesus and Hail Mary!

All:
This Bottom's gonna be on top
This Bottom's gonna be on top

Nick:
Man, I'm gonna sizzle
Man, I'm gonna pop

All:
And this Bottom's gonna be on top

Nick:
This is heaven sent
Feeling confident
Money well spent
It's gonna be great, gonna be great

Throw a big parade
Praises will be made
Compliments paid
It's gonna be great, gonna be great

Bea:
Me and baby are so eternally grateful
(You're who I'm doing it for)
Thank you for our cottage in the woods
(You deserve it!)

Nigel:
If gratitude were a food I'd have a big plateful
(Nice metaphor, bro)

You're the greatest
You're the man

Nick:
I really shouldn't say it
But yes I am!

All:
This Bottom's gonna be on top
This Bottom's gonna be on top

Nick:
Once I get going, never gonna stop

All:
Yeah, this Bottom's gonna be on top

Renaissance Writers:
We are the royalty of the Renaissance writers
Now we're handing down the crown to you
You were a nobody but overnight you're someone better than the rest of us
Now you are the best of us

(Dialogue)

Will:
If you want to make it to the top
Then you're gonna have to go through me
Cause on the top is where I live
And I will not be giving up that easily
So there

Nick:
Oh man I have been waiting for this moment for so long
I'm gonna enjoy it when I knock you off your perch

Will:
Oh no you won't

Nick:
Oh yes I will

Will:
Oh no you won't

Nick:
Oh yes I will

Will:
Oh no you won't

Nick:
Oh yes I will

Will:
Oh no you won't
My accomplishments are much more accomplished than yours

Nick:
In your dreams
I am the best

Will:
You can't be the best because I am the best
I have written 12 plays and each one is a testament to my great skill
I am the Will
And I wrote the Taming of the Shrew and Richard III and Richard II and Henry's IV, V, VI
And Titus Andronicus
And oh did I forget Romeo and Juliet

Nick:
Well I have just written the thing that the critics are calling the greatest thing they've ever seen
The people are loving it
Can't get enough of it
Everyone, even including the Queen
She recently invited me to her castle where she knighted me
And privately she told me that you're not any good, not any good, not any good, not any good
And she told me that all of your plays make her vomit
And none of them's as good as my musical Omelette

Will:
Wait a minute
You wrote Omelette

Nick:
Yes

Will:
I never thought that I would meet my equal
But I could see that I've been bested by the best
Maybe we could partner on a sequel

Nick:
Oh my, how the tide has turned
Let's review
What have we learned
See, you were here
But now we've swapped
So kiss this Bottom
I'm on the top

All:
He's on top
He's on top
Wah-wah-wah-wah
Yeah this Bottom's gonna be on top
(Repeat)
Yeah this Bottom's gonna be on top
Yeah this Bottom's gonna be on top

(Dialogue)

Bottom's up
Yeah this Bottom's gonna be on top
