Has Anybody Seen My Girl? (Five Foot Two, Eyes of Blue)    (1925)

I just saw a maniac, maniac, maniac,
Wild, and tearing his hair,
Jumping like a jumpin' jack, jumpin' jack, jumpin' jack,
Child, I had to be there,
Laughed so loud I thought that I would cave in,
When I heard that silly, daffy-dilly ravin'

CHORUS
Five foot two, eyes of blue,
But oh! what those five foot could do,
Has anybody seen my gal?

Turned up nose, turned down hose,
Flapper, yes sir! one of those,
Has anybody seen my gal?

Now if you run into a five foot two,
Covered with fur,
Diamond rings and all those things,
Betcha' life it isn't her,

But could she love, could she woo?
Could she, could she, could she coo?
Has anybody seen my gal?

Love made him a lunatic, lunatic, lunatic
He hollored and cried, like a monkey on a stick,
On a stick, on a stick, he was fit to be tied,
When we asked him for his wife's description.
He just answered all of us with this conniption:

Five foot two, eyes of blue,
But oh! what those five foot could do,
Has anybody seen my gal?

Lyrics by Sam M. Lewis and Joseph Widow Young.

Accounts of who originally composed "Has Anybody Seen My Girl?" vary, particularly since the song, especially its lyrics, was often modified. Some sources state that Percy Wenrich wrote the music and Jack Mahoney the lyrics, in 1914. Credit for the most popular version of the song, though, is given to Ray Henderson for the music, and Sam M. Lewis and Joseph Widow Young for the lyrics. It was this version that was recorded by The California Ramblers in 1925.
