When you proEb6pose Ebm6...
Bb6
Anything Bb6goes
When grandmama 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
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
When every night the set that's smart
Is intruding in nudist parties in studios
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
If saying your prayers you like, if green pears you like
If old chairs you like, if back stairs you like
If love affairs you like With young bears you like
Why nobody will oppose
And though I'm not a great romancer
I know that I'm bound to answer
When you propose... Anything goes
