Original video
Shelton: You ain't Dolly
Monroe: And you ain't Porter
Shelton: She's a little bit fuller
Monroe: And you're a whole lot shorter
Both: Let's dance all night and fill the jukebox full o' quarters
Shelton: 'Cause you ain't Dolly
Monroe: No, and you ain't Porter

Monroe: Well, I noticed you right off the bat in those cowboy boots
Shelton: Who couldn't help but see you in that rhinestone suit?
Monroe: That's 'cause I'm the reigning queen of karaoke night
Shelton: Well, if I get drunk enough to sing, hell, I just might
Monroe: Hey now, don't you worry, cowboy, 'cause I'll get you through
Shelton: We'll sing a cheating song just like they used to do

Shelton: 'Cause you ain't Dolly
Monroe: And you ain't Porter

Monroe: And you're a whole lot shorter
Both: Let's drink all night and fill the jukebox full o' quarters
Shelton: 'Cause you ain't Dolly
Monroe: No, and you ain't Porter

Monroe: You'll probably see me country singin' on The Voice someday
Shelton: Yeah, and I'm the guy they wrote about in Fifty Shades o' Grey
Monroe: Why don't you come on back to my place, and you can have your way?
Shelton: Well, baby, that sounds temptin', but I just can't stay
Monroe: Oh, we won first prize, cowboy, let's just split the dough
Shelton: Honey, I will always love you, but we'll never know

Shelton: 'Cause you ain't Dolly
Monroe: And you ain't Porter
Shelton: She's a little bit fuller
Monroe: Yeah, and you're a whole lot shorter
Both: We danced all night: filled the jukebox full o' quarters
Shelton: You ain't Dolly
