Now a lot of words have spelled the same
With a different meanin' you see
But here's a brand new way
To spell heaven and accordin' to me

You take a K and an E and an N and a T and U C K Y
That spells Kentucky but it means paradise
You take a chicken and you kill it
And you throw it in the skillet and you fry up a golden brown
That's southern cookin' taste mighty nice

It don't cover a lot when you look on a map
But I once studied geography when I sat in my mama's lap
You take K E N T U C K Y that spells Kentucky
But it means paradise

It don't cover a lot when you look on a map
But I once studied geography when I sat in my mama's lap
You take K E N T U C K Y that spells Kentucky
But it means paradise
Yes, that spells Kentucky but it means paradise
