Kodachrome Lyrics

KODACHROME
Paul Simon
Transcribed by Randy Goldberg

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 education hasn't hurt me none
I can read the writing on the wall

Kodachrome, it gives us those nice bright colors
Gives 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 momma, don't take my Kodachrome away

If you took all the girls I knew when I was single
And brought 'em all together for one night
I know they'd never match my sweet imagination
And everything looks worse in black and white

Kodachrome, it gives us those nice bright colors
Gives 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 momma, don't take my Kodachrome away
Momma, don't take my Kodachrome away
Momma, don't take my Kodachrome away
Momma, don't take my Kodachrome away

Momma, don't take my Kodachrome
Momma, don't take my Kodachrome
Momma, don't take my Kodachrome away

Momma, don't take my Kodachrome
And leave your boy so far from home
Momma, don't take my Kodachrome away

Momma, don't take my Kodachrome
Mmmmmm
Momma, don't take my Kodachrome away (Okay)
