The Lyrics

Your right eye looks left
Your left eye looks right
Please be my girlfriend
Cause you're out of sight!
Pitching and a bumblin', hey, hey
Tripping and a stumblin'
Going for our morning walk and (who--)
Who's seeing double? It's you!
My cross eyed girl
And you, my cross eyed girl

Oh, how did it happen?
That morning was so slow
Sitting down at the front desk
You were...staring down at your nose
Mama tried to tell you, "Stop that!
Or they will get stuck that way!"
Seven hours later
She drove to the eye doctor with you
My cross eyed girl
You my cross eyed girl

The doctor gave a test
You had to read:

F
B C
P T E O
B Z F E D O

Try line five:

F C L T B
T E P O L F D Z

Just like that.

So hard to find your way
Taking out telephone poles
I saw you just the other day
Down in a hole
I hope you wouldn't cheat on me
I know you've got a wandering eye, but
It made me feel so good when
You said you'd always fall for me
My cross eyed girl
And you, my crossed eyed girl

The doctor gave a test
You had to read:

F
B C
P T E O
B Z F E D O

Try line five:

F C L T B
T E P O L F D Z

Just like that.

Brilliant, Jeff, fantastic! And I agree with Kristof --- the eye chart sections are wonderfully original and creative. 555!

Dammit! I wanted to be the first one to praise the BEYOND brilliant eye chart bit...SOOO good! 5s!

5s from here, Jeff! Loved the lines '..stare down at your nose' and '..wandering eye' lol! Good job.

I thought the eye chart was going to be: 2 I'S U R 2 I'S U B I C U R 2 I'S 4 ME

Wonderfully creative, Jeff - the title, er, crossed my mind a while back but I didn't have the inspiration. And no way I'd have come up with the eye chart :-)
Ashkicksass - July 28, 2004 - Report this comment
All right Jeff! Yes, the eye chart is brilliant. But I also got a kick out of the wandering eye part, and her taking out telephone poles and falling into holes...
Rick D - July 28, 2004 - Report this comment
When I have time, I'm recording a simple track of this and sending it to you. I think it would be hilarious with you singing the eye chart. Ask me about it in a week or so to motivate me. I have this idea that Mari could be singing the eye chart with you...only wrong! (Unless you want to have your wife do it)

(SOTM) Tr-optical bliss. That's the best I can do. I second Arwen's comment. (the thirteenth one... no, the twenty second...) and the dozens of other comments on how briliant the eye chart layout was. Well done!

Scathe, Adagio, Red Ant...thanks! Red Ant, this came out with this the day of the vote wipe (7-28-04), so the only votes lost, if any would have been on that day, depending on the time of day the crash occurred.

(ABC) Thanks for improving upon an OS that I positively LOATHE! (Being brown-eyed and having parents that were fans of Van, it was sung to me a lot as a child...) But this was brilliant in and of itself. I'd actually never read this—it deserves all the praise it gets!

ABC4- Very witty and original with the eye chart. This one gave me a good belly laugh. 'Eyes' says excellent job, Jeff.
