I watched the season two premiere last night and loved this number! I kept thinking though, why didn't they change the lyric to "Hello, Zoey?" Legal issues, maybe?

During her final six weeks in the run of Dolly, Bette Midler changed the lyric to "I Put My Hand In" from "turned a frump to a trump lady fair" to "turned a frump to a fine lady fair" so she didn't have to say the word "trump" on stage. A lot of the audience who knew the original lyrics and who know Bette's political views got a nice chuckle out of that change.

I miss DOLLY and I miss Broadway!
