Kitty From Kansas City

Kitty from Kansas City was a 1930 song, famously sung by Hubert Prior Vallée, a French Vermont singer, popularly called Rudy Vallée. The song is about a Midwestern girl called Kitty and her apparent lack of intelligence, and obesity, due to a lyric: "She wasn't hard to see; she weighed 243."

Some recordings have been made by Vallée, the Imperial Dance Orchestra, and Johnny Walker.
