Anything Goes by Cole Porter

In olden days, a glimpse of stocking
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 you’re bound to answer
When I propose, anything goes.

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

And good authors too who once knew
Better words, now only use four-letter words
Writing prose, cause 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 you’re bound to answer
When I propose, anything goes.

May I say before this record spins to a close,
I want you to know anything goes.
