Well hello Dolly
It's so nice to have you back where you belong
You're lookin' swell, Dolly
We can tell, Dolly
You're still glowin', you're still crowin'
You're still goin' strong
We feel the room swayin'
'Cause the band's playin'
One of your old favorite songs from way back when
Take her wrap, fellas
Find her an empty lap, fellas
Dolly'll never go away
Dolly'll never go away
Hello Satch
This is Francis, Louie
It's so nice to see you back where you belong
You're back on top, Louie
Never stop, Louie
You're still singin', you're still swingin'
You're still goin' strong
You get the room swayin'
When you start in playin'
One of your great songs, or songs from way back when
Blow your horn, Louie
Sing up a great big song, Louie
Promise you won't go away
Promise you won't go away
Promise you won't go away again, ooh yeah";
