"Kodachrome"

(As recorded by Paul Simon)
PAUL SIMON

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, they give us those nice bright colors
Give us the green of summers
Makes you think all the world's a sunny day, oh yeah
I got a Nikon camera, I love to take photographs
So mama 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
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 photographs
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, don't leave your boy so far from home
Mama don't take my Kodachrome away.

Mama don't take my Kodachrome, hmmm
Mama don't take my Kodachrome away
Okay.
