It is a short Elephant! HA! Knee high by the 4th of July, gosh, heck and gee whiz the corn is as high as D’s eye. Oh, what a beautiful mornin',Oh, what a beautiful day. I got a beautiful feelin' Ev'rything's goin' my way. Oh Yeah baby, and Emerilism there, but the roofers are almost finished, the painters are being lined up and the Surprise for Sweetie Might get put together this night. Finding "corn as high as an elephant's eye" proved to be quite a challenge. Since filming the musical ”Oklahoma” was to take place out of season, no tall cornfields were to be found anywhere. The job was given to the people of the University of Arizona Agricultural Department, who planted each stalk in individual containers and held their breath. With rain and good luck, the corn grew to a height of 16 feet, causing Oscar Hammerstein to quip: "The corn is now as high as the eye of an elephant on top of another elephant."
