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!

Holland-Dozier-Holland originally wrote "Where Did Our Love Go" with The Marvelettes in mind, but they turned it down. Marvelettes lead singer Gladys Horton sang in a lower key than Diana Ross, so when The Supremes came to record the tune, Ross was forced to sing in a lower, breathier style than she was used to.
