Kodachrome
Paul Simon Lyrics


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
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 '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 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 (ok)

I used to think this was a happy song about killing your boss because over the Walmart soundsystem back when I worked there, it sounded like this.
1:58

So I'mma gon' take my colt and blow em' away
I'mma gon take my colt and blow em' away
Mm' I'mma gon' take my colt and blow em' away
Hmm'Ima gon' take my colt and blow em' away
I'ma gon' take my .44
I'ma gon' take my .44
I'ma gon' take my colt and blow em' away
I'ma gon' take my colt and blow em'
N' leave yo boss on the floor
I'mma gonna take my colt n blow em' away hey.
I'mma gon take my .44 oo wooh
I'mma gon' take my colt and blow em' away!
Piano goes nuts and music gets more happy.

@Backyard Music Feedback My apologies. I misinterpreted.

Backyard Music Feedback

William M well I wasn’t talking to you, But since you want to get involved, go ahead and explain to me how this comment was sarcasm.

William M

@Backyard Music Feedback Sure do. It's an intellectual form of humor lost on most of the population, like you.

Just found this song on a playlist for Mrs. Robinson. Now I'm addicted.

First memory of this song: Summer 1972 or 1973. It’s on the AM radio. I am 12 and in the backseat of my mom’s 1965 Pontiac Safari station wagon. It’s hot. It’s summer. No a/c so the windows are all down. We are crossing the Savannah River into Georgia and downtown Savannah. I can still smell the paper mills and swampy acrid smell. We are on a long drive back to Miami. No interstates. This song blew me away. I can still smell that paper mill and see that bridge in my mind when I hear this song. Everything’s going to be ok.

I have a 72 Pontiac Catalina coupe without air conditioning,just heat and manual crank windows. They don't make anything like they used to.
