Anything Goes (Cole Porter)

1. In olden days a glimpse of stocking
Was looked on as something shocking
Now heaven knows, anything goes

2. Good authors too who once knew better words
Now only use four letter words
Writing prose, anything goes, and 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

3. So though I'm not a great romancer
I know that you're bound to answer when I propose,
Anything goes - anything goes - anything goes
Anything goes - anything goes - anything goes

- Just think of those shocks you've got and those knocks you've got
And those blues you've got from that news you've got
And those pains you've got if any brains you've got
From those little radios
