ADD: Six Foot Two, Eyes of Blue

Subject: Six Foot Two, Eyes of Blue parody
From: John-S

Does anyone have the lyrics of a song which begins

Six foot two, eyes of blue Everybody's favourite Jew. Has anybody seen J.C. ?

I have no idea who wrote it or recorded it, but I've heard it sung by Eric Cuthbertson from Paisley.

I seem to remember a verse that goes:

Holy Mary - She's the most,
She got laid by the Holy Ghost
Has anybody seen JC,
- Since Ascension,
Has anybody seen JC ?

From: Joe Offer

Here's a fragment I recall from my 8 years of Catholic seminary - just a bit different from verses that are in the DT.
-Joe Offer-
    Five foot nine, he's divine
    Changes water into wine
    Has anybody seen my Lord

    Ain't he neat, ain't he cool,
    Walkin 'cross my swimmin' pool
    Has anybody seen my Lord?

In another thread, somebody posted a different parody, Gladys Isn't Gratis Any More

I believe the "Eight foot two" version is by Alan Sherman. As I recall, it was "Eight foot two, solid blue, two transistors in each shoe, has anybody seen my gal?" Further your affiant knoweth naught.

Aloha,
Mark

OK, OK, so it's Allan Sherman, and it's five transistors in each shoe. It's from My Son the Nut, which I didn't have, so that's my excuse! Here are all the lyrics to Eight Foot Two, Solid Blue

Aloha,
Mark

      Well if you run into
      A bearded Jew
      Healing the sick
      Its no joke
      Touch his cloak
      Heals your acne mighty quick

    Repeat first lines
Also note this verse, which somebody sent privately:

    Holes in hands,
    Holes in feet,
    Carries crosses down the street,
    Has anybody seen J.C.?

When I learned it back in the early 60's it was:

Five Foot Nine, Looks divine
Says he comes from Palestine
Has anybody seen my Lord?

Long brown hair... Button Nose
Hebrew? Yep he's one of those...
Has anybody seen my Lord?

Well if you run into a five foot Jew...
Don't nail him down...
He's so neat.. He's so cool... He can save your town...

Virgin Mary she's the most
She got laid by the Holy Ghost
Has anybody seen my Lord...
Just hanging round now...
Has anybody seen my Lord...

My recollection was
Six foot two eyes of blue, walks across your swimming pool has anybody seen my Lord?
He's so neat. He's so fine, changes water into wine.
Has anybody seen my Lord?
I learned it in circa 1955-1956 from Pat Proft who later became a major comedy writer/producer (Naked Gun, Hot Shots, Police Academy etc.) I'll ask him if he wrote it. I went to Catholic grade school with him.

Though it doesn't quite fit this thread, I'd like to offer something we used to sing in the 50s which went :-

Five foot four, fat galore,
when she walks she rocks the floor -
has anybody seen my gal?
Two left feet, eyes that meet,
but she's got that rock-n-roll beat -
has anybody seen my gal?

Now when she reads a book she cannot look
at the bottom of the pages,
there's so much size between her eyes
she hasn't seen her feet for ages;
every night she holds me tight and I'm completely out of sight -
has anybody seen my gal?

5 foot 9, he's divine born and raised in Palastine,
Has anybody seen my lord.

Well if you run into a little Jew
Wearing a sheet, hair's real weird, has a beard
just take a look at his hands and feet,

5ft 9 he's divine,
changes water into wine,
has anybody seen my lord.

Not sure about the rest,
do remember something about..
eyes of blue,
he's everybodys favorite Jew.

The way I remember it is:

Five foot nine, eyes that shine,
He can see you all the time.
Has anybody seen our Lord.

He is neat, He is Boss,
He can carry his own cross.
Has anybody seen our Lord?

And if you run into a screaming Jew,
Prophesying,
Don't be bored, he's the Lord
He's the one who saves us all.

He is neat, He is cool.
He can walk across the pool.
Has anybody seen our Lord?

a horney Jew
with thorns on his head
don't think twice, treat him nice
He raised my uncle from the dead

I had a lyric sheet when I was in grade school for the first mentioned version. My dad thought it was great but my music teacher thought it was a bit blasphemous... wimp!

Chorus:
If you run into
a five foot Jew
covered in thorns
da, da, da

Changes water into wine
Bet your (smack your butt) that he's divine

Virgin Mary, she's the most
She got (slap your knee) by the holy ghost

Has anybody seen J. C.?
J.C., J.C., J.C

Verses:
Holes in his hands
Holes in his feet
And his best friend's name is pete
Has anybody seen J.C.?
(chorus)

He's real neat
He's real cool
He just walked across my pool
Has anybody seen J. C.?
(chorus)

Heals the sick
Feeds the poor
And his girlfriend is a whore
Has anybody seen J.C.?
(chorus)

Sits on rocks
Talks a lot
Raises kids from cemetery plots
Has anybody seen J.C.?
(chorus)


And to end it, after the last "Has anybody seen J.C.?" get down on a knee and sing (more slowly):
Not since ascension.
Has anybody seen J.C.?

A Cobourg lawyer, Brad Halls and a Cobourg Doctor, Paul Caldwell, wrote this parody soon after Canada's official conversion to the metric system:

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 Fahrengrade or Centiheit,
She's gonna light my fire tonight,
Has anybody seen my gal?

Six Foot Two, Eyes of Blue: music by Percy Weinrich/Ray Henderson;

Six foot two, eyes of blue
He'll cheat me and he'll cheat you
Donald Trump is not your pal

He's abrupt, he's corrupt,
Hires you, then won't pay up
Donald Trump is not your pal

He lost a billion bucks, went bankrupt
Didn't pay no tax
His school's a fraud, (he) shames women's bod(ies)
Wouldn't rent out space to blacks

Coochie coo, he'll grope you
Mocks disabled people too
Donald Trump is not my
Donald Trump is not your
Donals Trump is not our pal.

It6 seems that there are lots of versions. The one I learned from a Unitarian minister in the mid-1970's goes---

Five foot nine, He's divine
Changes water into wine
Has anybody seen my Lord?

He's real neat, He's real cool,
He'll walk across your swimming pool,
Has anybody seen my Lord?

Now if you run into a bearded Jew
Healing the sick
It's no joke, touch his cloak,
He will heal you double quick.

Oh, it's been said he'll raise the dead,
And, Oh, what He can do with bread
Has anybody seen my, anybody seen my,
Anybody seen my Lord?

The lines I remember from Eric Cuthbertson back in the Bar Point days - although I'm quite sure allowances should be made for the passage of time and alcohol consumption on his side and ours - are:

He's 5 foot 3 from Galilee, he does tricks upon the sea,
Has anybody seen JC?
He's a 5 foot 2 blue eyed jew, Oh he can do it for you,
Has anybody seen JC?

Well if you run into 5 foot 2, covered in thorns,
Turning the water into wine, you can bet that he's devine.

Ain't he cool, he's no fool, he just walked my swimming pool,
Has anybody seen JC?

His father, Joseph, he‘s a gas, came from Bethlehem on his ass,
Has anybody seen JC?

His mother, Mary, she‘s the most, she‘s been fucked by the Holy Ghost,
Has anybody seen JC?

Well if you run into… etc
