He bought her a flower at the fair
1927 Kansas City
Said he liked the color of her hair
Then he walked her home and told her she was pretty

Then they spent a little while
Letting their hearts learn to smile
Doing things that lovers always do
He said 'How many kids? ' She said 'a few'
And it's 1927 Kansas city

Folks were drivin' round in their stuts bearcats
With straw hats, parasols, the fashion of the day
Summer nights with ukulele strumming
They were humming to the tune of moonlight bay

Batchtub gin and movie stars
Two more payments and the baby's ours
It's the little things that make this live so sweet
When your only worries were your two sore feet
From dancin' in the street in Kansas City

So fine the little ol' couple in love
Space in time the little ol' couple in love

Nowadays there's silver in her hair
The kids have come and gone like seasons turning
Forty years since they met at the fair
But he still brings her flowers in the morning

Knowing when the shadows fall
Life's a circle after all
Reminding her their love can never end
Suddenly she's just a girl again
And it's 1927 Kansas City
