"Thoroughly Modern Millie" as written by Jimmy Van Heusen and Sammy Cahn....
There are those
I suppose
Think we're mad
Heaven knows
The world has gone
To rack and to ruin
What we think is chic, unique and quite adorable
They think is odd and Sodom and Gomorrah-ble
But the fact is
Everything today is thoroughly modern
Check your personality
Everything today makes yesterday slow
Better face reality
It's not insanity
Says vanity fair
In fact, it's stylish
To raise your skirts and bob your hair.
In a rumble seat, the world is so cozy
If the boy is kissable
And that tango dance they wouldn't allow
Now is quite permissable
Goodbye, good, goody girl
I'm changing and how
So beat the drums 'cause here comes
Thoroughly modern Millie now!
Everything today is thoroughly modern
Bands are getting jazzier
Everything today is starting to go
Cars are getting snazzier
Men say it's criminal what women'll do
What they're forgetting is, this is 1922
Have you seen the way they kiss in the movies
Isn't it delectable?
Painting lips and pencil-lining your brow
Now is quite respectable
Goodbye, good, goody girl
I'm changing and how
So beat the drums, 'cause here comes
Thoroughly modern Millie now!
