Kodachrome

ŠPaul Simon, released on There Goes Rhymin' Simon, 1973

.

When I think back

On all the crap I learned in high school

It's a wonder

I can think at all

And though my lack of edu---cation

Hasn't hurt me none

I can read the writing on the wall

.

Kodachrome

They give us those nice bright colors

They give us the greens of summers

Makes you think all the world's a sunny day, Oh yeah

I got a Nikon camera

I love to take a photograph

So mama don't take my Kodachrome away

.

If you took all the girls I knew

When I was single

And brought them all together for one night

I know they'd never match

my sweet imagination

everything looks WORSE in black and white

.

Kodachrome

They give us those nice bright colors

They give us the greens of summers

Makes you think all the world's a sunny day, Oh yeah

I got a Nikon camera

I love to take a photograph

So mama don't take my Kodachrome away

.

Mama don't take my Kodachrome away

Mama don't take my Kodachrome away

Mama don't take my Kodachrome away

.

Mama don't take my Kodachrome

Mama don't take my Kodachrome

Mama don't take my Kodachrome away

.

Mama don't take my Kodachrome

Leave your boy so far from home

Mama don't take my Kodachrome away

Mama don't take my Kodachrome

.

Mama don't take my Kodachrome away
