Verse:
Times have changed,  And we've of - ten re - wound the clock,
Since the Pu - ri - tons got a shock,  When they land - ed on Ply - mouth Rock.
If to - day,  An - y shock they should try to stem,
'Stead of land - ing on Ply - mouth Rock,  Ply - mouth Rock would land on them.
 
Chorus:
In old - en days a glimpse of stock - ing,  Was looked on as some - thing shock - ing,
Now heav - en knows,  A - ny - thing goes.
Good auth - ors too who once knew bet - ter words,  Now on - ly use four - let - ter words,
Writ - ing prose,  A - ny - thing goes.
The world has gone mad to - day,  And good's bad to - day,  And black's white to - day,  And day's night to - day,
When most guys to - day,  That wo - men prize to - day,  Are just sil - ly gig - ol - os;
So though I'm not a great ro - manc - er,  I know that I'm bound to an- swer,
When I pro - pose,  A - ny - thing goes.
