When I think back
On all the crap I learned in high school
Its a wonder
I can think at all
And though my lack of edu---cation
Hasnt 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 worlds a sunny day, oh yeah
I got a nikon camera
I love to take a photograph
So mama dont 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 theyd never match
My sweet imagination
And 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 worlds a sunny day, oh yeah
I got a nikon camera
I love to take a photograph
So mama dont take my kodachrome away

Chorus:
(oh) maybellene, why cant you be true, whoah maybellene, why cant you be true
Youre not startin right, doin those things you used to do

As I was motivatin over the hill, I saw maybellene in a coup de ville,
A cadillac a-rollin on the open road, yeah, but nothin out race my v8 ford,
The cadillac doin bout 95, shes bumper to bumper, rollin side by side.

Chorus

He cooled down, the motor cooled down
Thats when Id heard that highway sound
I kept back sittin like a ton of lead
Got a hundred and ten a half mile ahead
Cadillac lookin like its standin still
And I caught maybellene at the top of the hill

Chorus

(instrumental break)

Chorus

Youre not startin right, doin those things you used to do
Youre not startin right, doin those things you used to do
