Song 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 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

Paul Frederic Simon (born October 13, 1941) is an American musician, actor and singer-songwriter. Simon's fame, influence, and commercial success began as part of the duo Simon & Garfunkel, formed in 1964 with musical partner Art Garfunkel. Simon wrote nearly all of the pair's songs, including three that reached No. 1 on the U.S. singles charts: "The Sound of Silence", "Mrs. Robinson", and "Bridge Over Troubled Water". The duo split up in 1970 at the height of their popularity, and Simon began a successful solo career as a guitarist and singer-songwriter, recording three highly acclaimed albums over the next five years. In 1986, he released Graceland, an album inspired by South African township music. Simon also wrote and starred in the film One-Trick Pony (1980) and co-wrote the Broadway musical The Capeman (1998) with the poet Derek Walcott.
