"Nobody Does Things Better Than Big Jake" is Big Jake's birthday song in the episode "Big Jake's Birthday Surprise", written by Tracy. She reherses this, with Jay Jay jumping in at some points, as they fly through the air while discussing their presents for Big Jake. The song is heard again as a trio by Tracy, Jay Jay and Old Oscar during the party at the end.

This song serves as the sixteenth track on the "Sing Along Songs" cassette, where it is given the title "Nobody Does It Better Than Big Jake".


Tracy: He's just a giant of a plane,
Takes heavy loads through wind and ra-ain.
He'll do it all and not compla-a-ain...

Nobody does...
Jay Jay: Nobody does...
Both: Nobody does things better than Big Jake.

Tracy: And after all his work is done,
He's just at great at having fu-un.
He'll come and play until the setting sun...

Nobody does...
Jay Jay: Make no mistake!
Tracy: Nobody does...
Jay Jay: He takes the cake!
Both: Nobody does things better than Big Jake!


Tracy: He liked the cake...
Jay Jay: And the gifts we got to make.

Jay Jay, Tracy and Old Oscar: Nobody does...
Old Oscar: Nobody does...
Jay Jay, Tracy and Old Oscar: Nobody does...
Old Oscar: Nobody does...
Jay Jay, Tracy and Old Oscar: Nobody does things better than Big Jake!
