I lived in a place called Okfuskee 
And I had a little girl in a holler tree 
I said, "little girl, it's plain to see 
Ain't nobody that can sing like me 
Ain't nobody that can sing like me"

She said, "it's hard for me to see 
How one little boy got so ugly"
Yes, my little girly, that might be 
But there ain't nobody that can sing like me 
Ain't nobody that can sing like me 

Way over yonder in the minor key 
Way over yonder in the minor key 
There ain't nobody that can sing like me 

We walked down by the Buckeye Creek 
To see the frog eat the goggle-eye bee 
To hear the west wind whistle to the east 
There ain't nobody that can sing like me 
Ain't nobody that can sing like me 

Oh, my little girly, will you let me see 
Way over yonder where the wind blows free?
Nobody can see in our holler tree 

And there ain't nobody that can sing like me 
Ain't nobody that can sing like me 

Way over yonder in the minor key 
Way over yonder in the minor key 
There ain't nobody that can sing like me 

Her mama cut a switch from a cherry tree 
And laid it on the she and me 
It stung lots worse than a hive of bees 
But there ain't nobody that can sing like me 
Ain't nobody that can sing like me 

Now I've walked a long long ways 
Still look back to my Tanglewood days 
I've led lots of girls since then to stray 
Saying ain't nobody that can sing like me 
Ain't nobody that can sing like me 

Way over yonder in the minor key 
Way over yonder in the minor key 
Ain't nobody that can sing like me 

Way over yonder in the minor key 
Way over yonder in the minor key 
Ain't nobody that can sing like me 

Ain't nobody that can sing like me
