Sally loves Ronnie and Brenda loves Bill
Bill still worships Sally and he always will
Ole Ronnie left Dorothy and Margie left Hank
To marry Bob Gibson who works at the bank.

And only the names have been changed
Only the names have been changed
Do-si-do swap your partner's the name of the game
And only the names have been changed.

It sure gets confusing it seems very strange
To see Ted with Alice what happened to Jane
Janice dropped Jim and she ran off with Ray
Ray found a cute little barmaid named Kay.

And only the names have been changed
Only the names have been changed
Do-si-do swap your partner's the name of the game
And only the names have been changed.

It's a restless ole world everyone's on the move
It's so hard to keep a good love in the groove
I spent weeks consoling my best buddy Jim
Then last week my woman she ran off with him.

Now my heart is broken it may never mend
I'm missing my woman and also my friend
I can't seem to find me a woman that's free
But George's ole lady sure looks good to me.

And only the names have been changed
Only the names have been changed
Do-si-do swap your partner's the name of the game
And only the names have been changed.

Do-si-do swap your partner's the name of the game
And only the names have been changed...
