Five Foot Two

Verse 1:

[C]Five foot two, [E7]eyes of blue
But [A7]oh! what those five foot could do,
Has [D7]anybody [G7]seen my [C]girl?

Verse 2:

[C]Turned up nose, [E7]turned down hose
[A7]Never had no other beaus.
Has [D7]anybody [G7]seen my [C]girl?

Bridge:

Now if you [E7]run into a five foot two, [A7]covered in fur,
[D7]Diamond rings and all those things,
[G7]Betcha' life it [D7]isn't [G7]her,
[Gaug]But...

Verse 3:

[C]Could she love, [E7]could she woo?
[A7]Could she, could she, could she coo?
Has [D7]anybody [G7]seen my [C]girl?

Once you know this tune, you also know the chords for Please Don't Talk About Me When I'm Gone. There's a song on youtube by Banjo Ikey called My Four Reasons that uses the same chords.

By the way, I agree that this is the perfect uke song.

Since you hit on both songs, do you know of a recording featuring them sung together? [5 ft. 2 and Please Don't Talk] My dad and a friend used to sing this in a pick-up band and I'd like to hear it again.
