Jesus Christ You're Tall

This song is by Harry Nilsson and appears on the album Duit On Mon Dei (1975) and on the album Sandman (1976).

Nilsson

I said Jesus, I said Jesus, I said Jesus Christ, you're tall
I bet nobody, I bet nobody, I bet nobody wanted to dance with you at all
I said Jesus, I said Jesus, there hardly ain't no room here for you at all
I said Jesus. I said Jesus, I said Jesus Christ, you're tall.

Well, we could dribble our way down a courtship, get married for a little while
I would shoot a little love inside your basket, mama, and in a little while we'd have a child
He'd be a little boy, he'd be a little boy but he'll get taller as the time goes by
He'd be a little boy, he'd be a little boy but pretty soon he'll hear the other boys cry.

Because they're saying to him
Jesus, they'd say Jesus, Jesus Christ he's tall
They'd say some day, they'd say some day, I hope he finds a basketball
And maybe a big scout from a big town team will come and sign him to the meadow larks
And ... that's it
