Gosh I Love Americans!

Following on from my recent thread about Cole Porter I was looking up the song 'Anything Goes' and I found this video on Youtube. You really have to love a nation that is so big and dazzling that it can have shows like these running throughout the year and attracting people from all over the globe. Since there has been a renaissance in television, let us hope the next wave is in the Broadway musical. For a thoroughly entertaining 6 minutes, click on the video below.



Times have changed, 
And we've often rewound the clock, 
Since the Puritans 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, 
But now, God knows, 
Anything Goes. 

Good authors too who once knew better words, 
Now only use four letter 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 
And though I'm not a great romancer 
I know that I'm bound to answer 
When you propose, 
Anything goes 

When grandmama whose age is eighty 
In night clubs is getting matey with gigolo's, 
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 
And though I'm not a great romancer 
I know that I'm bound to answer 
When you propose, 
Anything goes... 
Anything goes!
