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 glowing, you're still crowing, you're still going strong.
We feel the room swaying 'cause the band's playing
One of your old favorite songs from way back when,
Take a rap, fellows, find her an empty lap, fellows,
Dolly'll never go away, Dolly'll never go away...
(instrumental by Louie Armstrong playing his saxophone)
Hello Sax, 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 singing, you're still swinging, you're still going strong,
You get the room swaying when you start in playing
One of your great songs, your 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.
Louie Armstrong:  Oh yeah!
