I recently heard the song "Big Bad John" by Jimmy Dean, and sang along with the lyrics that described John as "six-foot-six" and weighing "245." It prompted me to think about other songs that mention the specific heights of people, like The Hollies' "Long Cool Woman," who is said to be "five-nine, beautiful, tall."

When I got to one particular height measurement, I was able to (fairly quickly) pick out three hit songs whose lyrics matched up. See if you can name those three (or any others) that match:

SIX-FOOT-FOUR
