"Hello, Dolly!" as written by and Jerry Herman....
Oh, hello Dolly, well, hello Dolly
It's so nice to have you back where you belong
You're lookin' swell, Dolly, I can tell, Dolly
You're still glowin', you're still crowin', you're still goin' strong

We feel the room swayin' while the band's playin'
One of your old favorite songs from way back when
So, take her wrap fellas, find her an empty lap, fellas
Dolly won't never ever go away again

Hey, hello Dolly, well, hello Dolly
It's really nice to have you back where you belong
Girl, you're lookin' swell, Dolly, I can tell, Dolly
Still glowin', still crowin', you're still goin' strong

We feel the room swayin' while the band's playin'
One of your old favorite songs from way back when
So, take her wrap fellas, find her a big fat lap, fellas
Dolly don't ever go away, Dolly don't you ever, ever go away
Dolly don't you ever go away again

    General CommentHere are the same lyrics formatted differently. Great song...A Herb Alpert classic. My father used to sing this song around the house. He'd also like to annoy his daughters with it by singning it as we walked down the stairs half asleep in the morning.

    We feel the room swayin' while the band's playin'

    So, take her wrap fellas, find her an empty lap, fellas
    Dolly won't never ever go away again
