Anything Goes is a song sung by Josie McCoy and is originally from the Cole Porter 1934 musical Anything Goes.

It was performed by Josie during opening night at La Bonne Nuit, while at the Leopold and Loeb Juvenile Detention Center, Archie throws the fight against his opponent.[1]


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
Good's bad today
Black's white today
And day's night today
And all the guys today
That women prize today
Are just silly gigolos
Anything goes
Anything goes

When every night
The set that's smart is
Intruding in nudist parties in
Oh, anything goes

So though I'm not a
A great romancer
I know you're bound to answer when
I propose
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
Anything goes

And all the pains you've got
If any brains you've got
From those little radios
Anything goes
Anything goes


  • This song was previously covered on the television series Glee which Archiverse showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa wrote on for three seasons. He also wrote the four-issue crossover Archie Meets Glee.
