SQL Syntax Error

Hello programmers.  I am getting the following error to the following SQL script.  Can someone help me identify what it is in my syntax (specifically the variables) that is incorrect?  Can I even use variables when creating a view?

ERROR:
Server: Msg 170, Level 15, State 1, Procedure TopLevel, Line 15
Line 15: Incorrect syntax near '@par_YR'.
Server: Msg 137, Level 15, State 1, Procedure TopLevel, Line 35
Must declare the variable '@par_YR'.
CREATE VIEW TopLevel
 
	@par_YR smallint,
	@par_MTH smallint

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
