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.

    With salvation’s walls surrounded Thou may’st smile at all thy foes.

    O sinewy silver biplane, nudging the wind’s withers!
    There, from Kill Devils Hill at Kitty Hawk
    Two brothers in their twinship left the dune;
    Warping the gale, the Wright wind wrestlers veered
    Capeward, then blading the wind’s flank, banked and spun.
    Hart Crane (1899–1932)
