Ode to Kenley Collins

Inspired by last night’s episode of Project Runway

Sung to the tune of “Brandy” by Looking Glass

There’s a girl, in this harbor town
and she works, stitching clothes and gowns.
They say, “Kenley, don’tcha whine and frown”
She makes them a bubble skirt.
The tailors say “Kenley, you’re a fine girl
What a good designer you would be
But your voice makes Nina Garcia
Leave the set.”

(dooda-dit-dooda), (dit-dooda-dit-dooda-dit)

Kenley, does her Bettie Page
Jet black hair, the 1940s rage.
Silk flower, pinned up in her hair
And blood red lipstick, too.

He left, on a summer’s day
In a tugboat, going far away
He made it clear, he couldn’t stay
No harbor was his home.”

Confession: I found these lyrics – unaccredited – on some fan board earlier today and changed them up a bit! If you are the original writer let me know and I’ll give you props!)
