[Dolly:]
Hello, Rudy
Well, Hello Harry
It's so nice to be back home where I belong
You are looking swell, Manny
I can tell, Danny
You're still glowin', you're still crowin'
You're still goin' strong
I feel the room swayin'
For the band's playin'
One of my old fav'rite songs from 'way back when
So, bridge that gap, fellas
Find me an empty lap, fellas
Dolly'll never go away again

[Waiters:]
Hello, Dolly,
Well Hello, Dolly,
It's so nice to have you back where you belong
You're looking swell, Dolly,
We can tell, Dolly,

You're still goin' strong.
We feel the room swayin'
For the band's playin'
One of your old fav'rite songs from 'way back when, so...
