Song Meaning
Verse 1
Times have changed,
And we've ofter rewound the clock
Since the puritans got a shock
When they landed on Plymouth rock
If today any shock they might try to stem
'Stead of landing of Plymouth rock
Plymouth rock would land on them.
Verse 2
In olden days a glimpse of stocking
Was looked on as something shocking
But now God knows
Anything goes
Verse 3
Good authors to
Who once knew better words
Now only use four letter words
Writing prose
Anything goes
Verse 4
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
Verse 5
When every night
The set thats smart
Is intruding on nudist parties
In studios
Anything goes
Verse 6
When Mrs. Ned McClean God bless her
Can get Russian reds to yes her
Than I suppose
Anything goes
Verse 7
When Rockafeller still can hoard
Enough money to let Max Gordon
Produce his shows
Anything goes
Verse 8
The world has gone mad today
And good's bad today
And black's white today
And days night today
And that gent today
You gave a cent today
Once owned several chateaux
Verse 9
When folks
Who still can ride in Jitney's
Find out Vanderbilts and Whitney's
Lack baby clo'es
Anything goes
Verse 10
When Sam Goldwyn
Can with great conviction
Instruct Anna Sten in diction
Than Anna shows
Anything goes
Verse 11
When you hear that
Lady Mendl standing up
Now turns a handspring landing up
On her toes
Anything goes
Verse 12
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
Verse 13
So Mrs. R.
With all her trimmin's
Can broadcast a bed from Simmon's
Cause Franklin knows
Anything goes
