    Lyrics

    Times have changed,
    And we've often rewound the clock,
    Since the Puritans got a shock,
    When they landed on Plymouth Rock.
    If today,
    Any shock they should try to stem,
    'Stead of landing on Plymouth Rock,
    Plymouth Rock would land on them.

    In olden days a glimpse of stocking
    Was looked on as something shocking,
    But now, God knows,
    Anything goes.

    Good authors too who once knew better words,
    Now only use four letter words
    Writing prose, Anything Goes.

    The world has gone mad today
    And good's bad today,
    And black's white today,
    And day's night today,
    When most guys today
    That women prize today
    Are just silly gigolos
    And though I'm not a great romancer
    I know that I'm bound to answer
    When you propose,
    Anything goes

    When grandmama whose age is eighty
    In night clubs is getting matey with gigolo's,
    Anything goes.

    When mothers pack and leave poor father
    Because they decide they'd rather be tennis pros,
    Anything goes.

    If driving fast cars you like,
    If low bars you like,
    If old hymns you like,
    If bare limbs you like,
    If Mae West you like
    Or me undressed you like,
    Why, nobody will oppose!
    When every night,
    The set that's smart
    Is intruding in nudist parties in studios,
    Anything goes.

    The world has gone mad today
    And good's bad today,
    And black's white today,
    And day's night today,
    When most guys today
    That women prize today
    Are just silly gigolos
    And though I'm not a great romancer
    I know that I'm bound to answer
    When you propose,
    Anything goes

    If saying your prayers you like,
    If green pears you like
    If old chairs you like,
    If back stairs you like,
    If love affairs you like
    With young bears you like,
    Why nobody will oppose!

    And though I'm not a great romancer
    And though I'm not a great romancer
    I know that I'm bound to answer
    When you propose,
    Anything goes

    Anything goes!
