8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
I just saw a maniac, mainic, mainic,
Wild, and tearing his hair,
Jumping like a jumpin' jack, jumpin' jack, jumpin' jack,
Child, you should have been there,
Laughed so loud I thought that I would cave in,
When I heard that silly, daffy-dilly ravin':
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, Never had noother beaus,
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?
