"Nobody But Me" as written by and Rudolph/isley Isley....
No no no no no no no no no
No no no no no no no no
No no no no no no no no
No no no no no

Nobody can do
The shing-a-ling
Like I do

No no no no no no no no no
No no no no no no no no
No no no no no no no no
No no no no no

Nobody can do
the skate
Like I do

No no no no no no no no no
No no no no no no no no
No no no no no no no no
No no no no no

Nobody can do
The boogaloo
Like I do

No no no no no no no no no
No no no no no no no no
No no no no no no no no
No no no no no

Nobody can do
the philly
Like I do

Well don't you know I'm gonna skate
I'm doin', ain't nobody doin'
But me baby
Nobody but me

Yes i gonna philly, I'm doin'
Ain't nobody doin'
But me baby
Nobody but me

Well let me tell you nobody
Nobody but me
Well let me tell you
Nobody, nobody, nobody, etc.

    General CommentThis was in Kill Bill Vol. 1. It's the song being played while the Bride is slaughtering the Crazy 88.

    Lyric CorrectionThe lyrics are all wrong. Not even misheard mistakes but whole paragraphs of "no no no"s that don't exist. Did the person submit them from memory??

    I went looking online for lyrics but there are lots of different lyrics listed and they don't make sense.

    The part that is different everywhere is the "Well don't you know _______ skate ____ ain't nobody do it but me" sections.

    What I hear and what makes sense to me is:
    Well don't you know I've got a skate [that] I do, ain't nobody do it but me.

    The [that] is obviously not spoken, I just put it in to show how it's implied. They are all types of dances, and I think the song is about how he has his own way of doing each of them that makes him unique.
