They couldn't pick a better time to start in life,
It ain't too early and it ain't too late.
Startin' as a farmer with a brand-new wife~
Soon be livin' in a brand-new state!
Brand-new state
Gonna treat you great!

Gonna give you barley,
Carrots and pertaters~
Pasture fer the cattle~
Spinach and termayters!
Flowers on the prairie where the June bugs zoom~
Plen'y of air and plen'y of room~
Plen'y of room to swing a rope,
Plen'y of heart and plen'y of hope.

Where the wind comes sweepin' down the plain
(And the wavin' wheat
Can sure smell sweet
When the wind comes right behind the rain)
Every night my honey lamb and I
Sit alone and talk
And watch a hawk
Makin' lazy circles in the sky.
We know we belong to the land,
And the land we belong to is grand.
And when we say;
Ee-ee-ow! A-yip-i-o-ee-ay!
We're only sayin',
You're doin' fine, Oklahoma!
Oklahoma, O.K.!
