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 stockings
Was looked on as something shocking
Now, heaven 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

So though I'm not a great romancer
I know that I'm bound to answer
When you propose
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

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