Bbm7       F7
Times have changed
Bbm7
And we've often rewound the clock
B7
Since the Puritans got a shock
Cm7b5                        F7
When they landed on Plymouth Rock.

Bb7                             Ebm
If today, any shock they should try to stem
Cm7b5                Bbm
'Stead of landing on Plymouth Rock,
         C7                 F7
Plymouth Rock would land on them.

Bb
In olden days, a glimpse of stocking
Bb                         Gm
Was looked on as something shocking.
    Bb       Eb
But now, God knows,
         Bb
Anything goes.

Bb
Good authors too who once knew better words
Bb                Gm
Now only use four-letter words
Bb      Eb
writing prose.
         Bb   A7
Anything goes.

                D                     Em6
If driving fast cars you like, if low bars you like,
       Dm7                     Em6
If old hymns you like, if bare limbs you like,
       Dm7                    Dm7
If Mae West you like, or me undressed you like,
     Dm7          F7
Why, nobody will oppose.

     Bb
When ev'ry night the set that's smart is in-
Bb                Gm
truding in nudist parties
   Bb   Eb
in studios.
         Bb
Anything goes.

     Bb
When Missus Ned McLean (God bless her)
    Bb                  Gm
Can get Russian reds to "yes" her,
     Bb    Eb
Then I suppose
         Bb
Anything goes.

     Bb
When Rockefeller still can hoard en-
     Bb               Gm
Ough money to let Max Gordon
   Bb       Eb
Produce his shows,
         Bb   A7
Anything goes.

                   D                     Em6
The world has gone mad today, and good's bad today,
            Dm7                    Em6
And black's white today, and day's night today,
         Dm7                    Dm7
And that gent today, you gave a cent today
         Dm7         F7
Once had several chateaux.

     Bb
When folks who still can ride in Jitneys
     Bb                  Gm
Find out Vanderbilts and Whitneys
     Bb   Eb
Lack baby clo'es,
         Bb
Anything goes.

         Bb
When Sam Goldwyn can with great conviction
   Bb                 Gm
Instruct Anna Sten in diction,
     Bb   Eb
Then Anna shows
         Bb
Anything goes.

         Bb
When you hear that Lady Mendl standing up
Bb                    Gm
Now does a handspring landing up-
Bb     Eb
On her toes,
         Bb   A7
Anything goes.

                    D                            Em6
Just think of those shocks you've got, and those knocks you've got
          Dm7                          Em6
And those blues you've got, from those news you've got
          Dm7                       Dm7
And those pains you've got, (If any brains you've got)
           Dm7        F7
From those little radios.

   Bb
So Missus R, with all her trimmin's,
    Bb                   Gm
Can broadcast a bed from Simmons
       Bb       Eb
'Cause Franklin knows
         Bb   F7add#5 Bb
Anything goes.
