THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE (Sammy Cahn / James Van Heusen) Millie: 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-able 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 permissible. Goodbye, good'-goody girl I'm changing and how! So beat the drums Coz here comes thoroughly modern Millie now! Everything today is thoroughly modern Bands are gettin' jazzier Everything today is starting to go Cars are gettin' snazzier Men say it's criminal What women'll do. What they're forgetting is This is Nineteen Twenty-Two. 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 Coz here comes thoroughly modern Millie now! (Contributed by Carlene Bogle - January 2002)
