Subject: Folklore: Do You have Ninty-Nine Eyes?
From: GUEST,Michael-wa7qzr

In the late 50s or early 60s I was beginning to appreciate records. There was a a song from a children's record I owned, that I've long since lost, which I cannot get out of my head. These are the following incomplete lyrics. The tune seems to be unique to the song. The tempo was fast.

"I've got 99-eyes and 88-tails,
44-ears and 55-noses
33-fingers on each hand,
I just don't understand, why;

"All my friends run away from me
away from me
away from me
away from me
I don't know why they run from me.
I'm normal as I can be."

Well folks, that's all I can remember of it. I'd like to know the nane, the complete lyrics and even get a hold of a copy, digital or vinyl.

I was just thinking of this song the past couple weeks, myself. I had the record and I hope you're correct on the numbers and body parts.

The gratifying second (or third?) verse goes:

Then one morning I made a friend
He said to me
"How do you do?
Won't you please come and play with me
'Cause I'm just the same as you."

[two voices in harmony:]

We've … got … [and into the chorus]
