Times have changed,
And we’ve often rewound the clock
Since the Puritans got the shock
When they landed on Plymouth Rock!
If today any shock they should 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 too
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 that’s smart
Is intruding on nudist parties
In studios–
Anything goes!

When Mrs. Ned McClean, God bless her,
Can get Russian Reds to „yes” her
Then I suppose–
Anything goes!

When Rockefeller 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 day’s night today
And that gent today
You gave a cent today
Once had several châteaux

When folks
Who still can ride in jitneys
Find out Vanderbilts and Whitneys
Lack baby clothes–
Anything goes!

When Sam Goldwyn
Can with great conviction
Instruct Anna Sten in diction,
Then 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!
