Verse:
I just saw a ma -ni -ac, ma -in -ic, ma -in -ic,
Wild, and tear -ing his hair,
Jump -ing like a jump -in' jack, jump -in' jack, jump -in' jack,
Child, you should have been there,
Laughed so loud I thought that I would cave in,
When I heard that sil -ly, daf -fy -dil -ly rav -in':
 
Chorus:
Five Foot Two, Eyes Of Blue, But oh, what those five foot could do,
Has an -y -bod -y seen my girl?
Turned up nose, turned down hose, Nev -er had no -oth -er beaus,
Has an -y -bod -y seen my girl?
Now if you run in -to a five foot two, cov -ered with fur,
Dia -mond rings and all those things Bet -cha' life it is -n't her,
But could she love, could she woo? Could she, could she, could she coo?
Has an -y -bod -y seen my girl?
