Recordings

  1. Album version, 3'17.
    Performed by The Dukes of Stratosphear.
    Released on Psonic Psunspot.

    Andy: “ ‘Have You Seen Jackie’ was written for 25 O'Clock; it was called ‘Have You Seen Sydney’, a direct reference to our Syd. It's got smatterings of everything - the character and story are part Keith West/Teenage Opera/Mark Wirtz . . . the kids, the ‘is he a boy is he a girl’, the ‘if you see him leave him alone’ bits . . .”
    Gary Pig Gold: “Magical Mystery mellotron. Ogdens Nut intro w/ touch of Keith West and '67 Bowie. Music effects Electric Prunes (‘I Had Too Much to Dream’), Strawberry Alarm Clock (done with a harmoniser unit set on ‘octave’, by the way).”

Lyrics

Have you seen Jackie?
He's a strange strange strange little girl
Make up on his face and his hair in curls
Have you seen Jackie?
She's a strange strange strange little boy
Her long black beard is her pride and joy

And all the children follow him around
And all the grownups try to drag her down
So we sing
Hey, leave Jackie alone
Hey, his pigeons have flown
Hey, she's never at home at all these days
Leave Jackie alone

Have you seen Jackie?
He's an odd odd odd little fish
To fly around is his only wish
Have you seen Jackie?
She's a queer queer queer little bird
Shy and quiet neither scene nor herd

And all the rats will follow him around
The dogs and cats will chase her from the town
And we sing
Hey, leave Jackie alone
Hey, his mind is all blown
Hey, she's not on the phone at all these days
Leave Jackie alone
Jackie couldn't decide if he was a girl
Or if she was a boy
Have you seen Jackie?

Hi,

Here's a tab for the verse to Have you seen Jackie by the Dukes. It's
the first time I've done one so the layout is probably all wrong (the
music's right though ;o)). What is the maximum number of characters you
can have per line?

Thanks for the site btw, it's brilliant!
