Lyrics

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
'Cause 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
'Cause here comes thoroughly modern
Millie now!
