So to do.

At the end of a sentence in English you can say "to do so." You can also say "to so do", or "so to do". They all mean exactly the same thing.

I was trying to think of other examples in English where you could rearrange 3 words in 3 different ways and still make sense, but I couldn't.

(There are millions of ways to switch 2 words, e.g. "to go boldly" or "to boldly go", etc.)

(What about other languages?)
