Mister Five by Five He's five feet tall and he's five feet wide He don't measure no more from head to toe Than he do from side to side. Mister Five by Five Got fifteen chins and a line of jive He's a mellow old cat, a real hep fat He be Mister Five by Five. That man can really jump it for a fat man The only trouble is there's no way of knowin' Whether he's comin' or goin'. Mister Five by Five He's slightly plump on the solid side He don't shake it no more from head to toe Than he do from side to side. Mister Five, Five by Five He's five feet tall and he's five feet wide Slightly plump and he can jump 'Cause he's a mellow old fat and a real hep cat. Mister Five by Five He's five feet tall and he's five feet wide He doesn't measure no more from his head to his toe Than he do from side to side. Mister Five by Five-feet-five He's slightly plump on the solid side He doesn't measure no more from head to toe Than'll he do from side to side. Mister Five, Mister Five, Mister Five He be just little Mister Five by Five. (Transcribed by David Story - September 2013)
