Hi. I've been informed that there's a parody of Five Foot Two, to be sung by a girl, that begins "Six foot two..." and ends "Has anybody seen my guy?"

Anyone know it?

(I know that there's one in the DT that goes "Five foot nine... has anybody seen JC?", but that's not what I'm looking for.)

Thanks, Marion

Dunno if this is it, but there was one by Allen Sherman--My son, the folksinger--that went "Six foot-two, solid blue, (etc...)" (Or was it eight-foot two?) Anyway, that's probably not what you were looking for. Oh well.

In his red Hanes underwear.
Has anybody seen my guy?

We can write one for you...

Here's one that I sing, Marion:

"He's six-foot-three, eyes of green,
Cutest guy you've ever seen,
Has anybody seen my guy?
He's not too bright, not too dim.
Sister, get a load o' him!
Has anybody seen my guy?
Well, now, if you should see a six-foot-three
All muscled and slim,
Fat billfold, drives a Rolls,
Bet yer life that that ain't him!
But he's my pride, he's my joy,
Hubba! Hubba! He's my boy!
Has anybody seen my guy.

Parody lyrics by Sonja W. Oates ©1992

Came on this old link, but the version I first learned (in the 60s) wasn't here, darn it! Eventually dredged it up from my sleeping memory cells, and here it is, for anyone still looking... (it was one my mother knew, so perhaps even contemporary with the original Five Foot Two...)

Six foot two
Eyes of blue
Oh what those six feet can do!
Has anybody seen my guy?
Roman nose
Argyle hose
Does he wear collegiate clothes,
Has anybody seen my guy?
Now if you run into
A six foot two
Covered with tweed
Briar pipe, you know the type
You can bet your life it isn't he!
But could he love,
Could he neck
Look at me, I'm just a wreck!
Has anybody seen my guy?

Thanks much. I have one of those “6’2” eyes of blue” and I sang this (well sort of this) tonight. I don’t know where I learned this, but I suddenly had it. Must have learned it in camp.

Has anybody seen JC

Eight Foot Two

I seem to remember one that started something like

Five foot nine
He's no fool
He just walked across my pool
Has anybody seen J.C.?

I stumbled across this site while I was looking for the way my mom use to sing it to me as a kid before bed! I cannot find the version she use to sing anywhere. It goes something like

Six foot tall, what a doll
She plays college basketball
Has anybody seen my doll?
Cauliflower ear, she drinks beer
She could eat just half a steer
Has anybody seen my doll?
Now if you run into, a 6 ft 2 covered in hair
Don't be suprised, its not your eyes
Her old man was a grisly bear
Loves to neck, what the heck
She played at Ft. Georgia Tech
Has anybody seen my doll?

Wow, looking at the lyrics, no wonder I turned out weird! Ha!

Eight feet tall, What a doll
She plays college basket ball
Has anybody seen my gal?
Bites your ear, guzzles beer
She could eat a half a steer
Has anybody seen my gal?

So if you run into an eight-foot shrew, covered in hair,
Don't be shy, the reason why,
Her mother was a grizzly bear.
Oh, what the heck, she can't neck,
But she plays football for Georgia Tech,
Has anybody seen my gal?

Definitely not what you're looking for, but two Cobourg musicians, Paul Caldwell and Brad Halls wrote this parody right after Canada went metric:

She's a centimetre shorter than a metre and a quarter,
And ev'ry millimetre is in perfect working order,
Has anybody seen my gal?
I know I'm only human but I still have the acumen
To know her eyes are flashing 'bout a half a million lumen,
Has anybody seen my gal?
A pair of gorgeous gams on her fifty kilograms
When she twirls her skirts.
My chest just thumps and my heart rate jumps
About a hundred kilohertz!
But Celcius or Fahrenheit,
She's gonna light my fire tonight,
Has anybody seen my gal?

They had a duo act performing for kids called "The New Kids On The Block" a few years before Donny Whalberg et al used the name.
