The London LGBT choir "The Pink Singers" performing Cole Porter's "Anything Goes!" at their summer concert 2011. Lyrics below the fold – 'though they sing so well and with such clear diction I doubt you'll need them.

Enjoy :-)

Lyrics:

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,
now, heaven 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
So though I'm not a great romancer
I know that you're bound to answer
When I propose,
Anything goes

In olden days a glimpse of stocking
Was looked on as something shocking,
now, heaven knows,
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 you're bound to answer
When I propose,
Anything goes

    In my travels around the site I just discovered this. Great earwig. It's fun to watch singers who seem to be enjoying themselves. Mark, do you listen to the Playing for Change Music? I love it - especially Stand By Me. Lots of it on YouTube. Thanks for the music.
