"Classic" as written by Andrew Maxwell Goldstein, Emanuel Kiriakou, Evan Kidd Bogart and Lindy Robbins....
Hey! Where's the drum?

Ooh girl you’re shining
Like a 5th avenue diamond
And they don’t make you like they used to
You’re never going out of style

Ooh pretty baby
This world might have gone crazy
The way you saved me,
Who could blame me
When I just wanna make you smile

I wanna thrill you like Michael
I wanna kiss you like Prince
Let’s get it on like Marvin Gaye
Like Hathaway write a song for you like this

You’re over my head
I’m out of my mind
Thinking I was born in the wrong time
One of a kind, living in a world gone plastic
Baby you’re so classic
Baby you’re so classic
Baby you,
Baby you’re so classic

Four dozen of roses
Anything for you to notice
All the way to serenade you
Doing it Sinatra style

Ima pick you up in a Cadillac
Like a gentleman bringin' glamor back
Keep it real to real in the way I feel
I could walk you down the aisle

I wanna thrill you like Michael
I wanna kiss you like Prince
Let’s get it on like Marvin Gaye
Like Hathaway write a song for you like this

You're over my head
I’m out of my mind
Thinking I was born in the wrong time
Let's start the rewind, everything is so throwback age (I kinda like it like it)
Out of my league
Old school chic
Like a movie star
From the silver screen
One of a kind living in a world gone plastic
Baby you’re so classic
Baby you’re so classic
Baby you’re so classic

Baby you’re class and baby you're sick
I never met a girl like you ever til we met
A star in the 40’s, centerfold in the 50’s
Got me tripping out like the sixties
Hippies Queen of the discotheque
A 70’s dream and an 80’s best
Hepburn, Beyoncé, Marilyn Manson
Girl you’re timeless, just so classic

You're over my head I’m out of my mind
Thinking I was born in the wrong time
Let's start the rewind, everything is so throwback age (I kinda like it like it)
Out of my league
Old school chic
Like a movie star
From the silver screen
You’re one of a kind living in a world gone plastic
Baby you’re so classic
Baby you’re so classic
Baby you’re so classic

    My Interpretation"You’re one of a kind living in a world gone plastic
    Baby you’re so classic"

    There are two meanings to this: 1. It's about a car. '2' is unimportant.

    My Interpretation'living in a world gone plastic'

    'they don’t make you like they used to'

    in these two lines, I like to think the writer is referring to barbie for some reason.

    'Hippies Queen of the discotheque
    A 70’s dream and an 80’s best'

    The different kinds of barbies from each era

    'Girl you’re timeless'

    Meaning that barbie has been going through so many generations and does't get old.

    My Opinionin my oipinion this whole song is talking about a certain girl who isn't another fake wanna be kind of a girl, shes natural and isn't changing herself or her looks to please others, which is why he's saying "baby you're so classic"

    TranslationGuys, I think it's 'Marilyn, massive', referring to Marilyn Monroe, not 'Marilyn Manson'. He doesn't link very well with Hepburn and Beyonce.

    My InterpretationIt's basically a song about a girl who doesn't need to pretend and be "plastic" like other girls these days. A girl who doesn't need to follow the latest fashion trends and dress's differently. A girl who is "classic" and original.

    My InterpretationI think the line is "Hepburn, Beyonce, Marilyn, Massey" instead of either "Marilyn Manson" or "Marilyn, Massive". This would probably be referring to Anna Massey, the actress that played the barmaid in Hitchcock's "Frenzy". She had a career from 1958 to 2010 and got a Best Actress award for the TV Adaptation of "Hotel du Lac". She would be less famous here in America, being a British actress, but she seems to fit the style of the song too -- being a high-class, expert actress with a long running career. I believe she would be a perfect fit for that part of the song.
