Insulting Song Lyrics:

Dated Song Lyrics:

"You're The Top"
The Dated Lyrics:
You're a Bendel bonnet

You're Garbo's salary, you're cellophane

You're an Arrow collar

You're a Coolidge dollar
Why They're Dated:
The guy's supposedly telling a woman how wonderful she is (or a man, considering who wrote and originally sang this song). However:

1. While cellophane may have been a great scientific breakthrough back in the '30s, nowadays it just something mopst people throw away
2. Not only is (Greta) Garbo dead now, but the salaries of so many big-name celebrities of this era are at least a hundred times what hers was
3. Bendel bonnet? Arrow collar? What are those?
4. The Colidge dollar lost all value after the stock market crash
