Swing your partners, all get screwed.

Bring your lawyer and I'll bring mine,

Sign it on the dotted line.

Notes.
1. An early demo of the song exists and clearly reveals the 'Open E' tuning. 
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3qeMnRVHZf0
2. Regarding the song's square-dance theme, [Leng] suggests that folk dancing's 
cycle of about-turns and to-and-fro movement reminded Harrison of the Beatles' 
"seemingly endless, and pointless, legal orbits around one another" in the early 
70's.
