Dm7 - C -       (to chorus)
8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
Verse is in the key of Cm, chorus is in C.
Times have changed,  And we've often rewound the clock,
Since the Puritons 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,
Now heaven knows,  Anything goes.
Good authors too who once knew better words,  Now only use fourletter 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;
So though I'm not a great romancer,  I know that I'm bound to answer,
When I propose,  Anything goes.
