Oklahoma seeks state rock song

News from the Okie state ...

Nominations for Oklahoma's state rock 'n' roll song are being accepted through Thursday. In August, a panel of judges appointed by state officials will select 10 finalists. From Sept. 1 to Nov. 15, people can vote for their favorite. The winning song will be presented to the state legislature next year.

Any song written or performed by an Oklahoman is eligible. That means Oklahomans The Flaming Lips are in the running. I think they would be perfect.
Hey, do you know what the Official State of Oklahoma Rock song is?

Oh yeah ... it's "She Don't Use Jelly" by the Flaming Lips.

I think it would be fun to hear the song belted out at a state function:

I know a girl who thinks of ghosts
She'll make ya breakfast
She'll make ya toast
She don't use butter
She don't use cheese
She don't use jelly
Or any of these
She uses vaseline
