Anything Goes

Connick Jr., Harry
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

Well, when grand mama, whose age is eighty
In night clubs is getting matey with gigolos
Anything goes
When mothers pack and leave poor father
Because they decide they'd rather be tennis pros
Anything goes

Just think of those shocks you've got
And those knocks you've got
From those boos you've got
From those moves you've got
And those pains you've got
If any brains you've got
From those little radios

When every night
The set that's smart
Is intruding in nudist parties in studios
Anything goes

Well, 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 chateaux

And though I'm not a great romancer
I know that I'm bound to answer when you propose
Oh, anything goes
I mean anything, man, anything goes
