Lyrics

[Lady Gaga]
In olden days, a glimpse of stocking was
Looked on as something shocking
Now Heaven knows
Anything goes

[Tony Bennett]
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

[Lady Gaga]
And day's night today
And black's white today

[Tony Bennett]
And most guys today
That women prize today

[Lady Gaga]
Are just silly gigolos

[Tony Bennett]
And though I'm not a great romancer

[Lady Gaga]
I know you're bound to answer

[Both]
When we propose
Anything goes

[Tony Bennett]
Go

[Lady Gaga]
Go
Whoo

The world has gone mad today

[Tony Bennett]
And good's bad today

[Lady Gaga]
And day's night today

[Tony Bennett]
And black's white today

[Lady Gaga]
And most guys today
That women prize today
Are just silly gigolos

[Tony Bennett]
And

[Both]
Though we're not a great romancers
We know you're bound to answer
When we propose
Anything goes

[Tony Bennett]
Anything goes

[Lady Gaga]
Anything goes

[Both]
Anything goes
