    Times have changed,
    And we've ofter rewound the clock
    Since the puritans got a shock
    When they landed on Plymouth rock
    If today any shock they might try to stem
    'Stead of landing of 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 to
    Who once knew better words
    Now only use four letter words
    Writing prose
    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 thats smart
    Is intruding on nudist parties
    In studios
    Anything goes

    When Mrs. Ned McClean God bless her
    Can get Russian reds to yes her
    Than I suppose
    Anything goes

    When Rockafeller still can hoard
    Enough money to let Max Gordon
    Produce his shows
    Anything goes

    The world has gone mad today
    And good's bad today
    And black's white today
    And days night today
    And that gent today
    You gave a cent today
    Once owned several chateaux

    When folks
    Who still can ride in Jitney's
    Find out Vanderbilts and Whitney's
    Lack baby clo'es
    Anything goes

    When Sam Goldwyn
    Can with great conviction
    Instruct Anna Sten in diction
    Than Anna shows
    Anything goes

    When you hear that
    Lady Mendl standing up
    Now turns a handspring landing up
    On her toes
    Anything goes

    Just think of those shocks you've got
    And those knocks you've got
    And those blues you've got
    From those news you've got
    And those pains you've got
    (if any brains you've got)
    From those little radios

    So Mrs. R.
    With all her trimmin's
    Can broadcast a bed from Simmon's
    Cause Franklin knows
    Anything goes
