[R] plotting labels (not values) on xy plot

I have 2 vectors, x and y and have done an xy plot.

I want to plot the label (name?) of the vector on the plot rather than the

text(x,y, labels = x)

gives me the value of x.

text(x,y, labels = labels(x))

gives me something like c("text1","text2"..) plotted for each point

text(x,y, labels = names(x))

gives nothing

print(x) gives me

text1    0.000000000
text2    0.000000000
text3   -0.029027359
text4   -0.088602806

so how do 'text1' written rather than the value? I know there is a way but I
am just guessing at the moment.

Any pointers greatly appreciated.
