"Well, I got a girl six feet tall
Sleeps in the kitchen with her feet in the hall"
"Well, two old ladies sitting in the sand
Each one wishing that the other was a man"
'Cumberland Gap' - Lonnie Donegan
You can see why skiffle was so popular in the 50's.
'Red Hot', as sung by George in Hamburg has veyr similar lyrics to the "six feet tall" lyrics above which always throws me.
"Well I gotta gal, six feet four, sleeps in the kitchen
With her face at the door"
