Anything Goes   Leave a comment

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 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!

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

And though I’m not a great romancer
I know that I’m bound to answer
When you propose,
Anything goes!


When grandmama whose age is eighty
In night clubs is getting matey with gigolo’s,

Anything Goes!

When mothers pack and leave poor father
Because they decide they’d rather be tennis pros,

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 in nudist parties in studios,

Anything Goes!

If saying your prayers you like,

If green pears you like


If old chairs you like,

If back stairs you like,

If love affairs you like

With young bears you like,

Why nobody will oppose!

And though I’m not a great romancer


I know that I’m bound to answer


When you propose,


Anything goes!
