Kodak Music: The Girl from Kodak Town


Sheet music cover ( Real Audio | MP3 )

Down where the Genesee River is flowing a blue way to the sea,
Lies a fair city, so quaint and so pretty,
It's home sweet home to me.
It's nature's own bow'r and I long for the hours
'neath its cool gray shadows flown,
It was known as the beautiful city of Flow'rs,
Now we call it Kodak Town!

She's the girl from Kodak Town, Kodak Town, Kodak Town
Meet her on her sunlit way,
And you'll stay for a picture gay.
When I see her smile so quick, then you'll hear her Kodak click;
She's Kodaked so many, won't someone snap her?
She's the fascinating, picture taking, girl from Kodak Town.

Then just suppose that you stand 'neath that arbor now look right at me, please.
And in a jiffy, a picture quite nifty will bring you to your knees.
In case of a show'r, we might spoon for an hour,
And then plan to settle down,
In that wonderful, beautiful garden on flowers,
That we call our Kodak Town.

She's the girl from Kodak Town, Kodak Town, Kodak Town
Meet her on her sunlit way
And you'll stay for a picture gay.
When I see her smile so quick, then you'll hear her Kodak click
She's Kodaked so many, won't someone snap her?
She's the fascinating picture taking girl from Kodak Town.
