If you took all the girls I knew when I was single, brought them all together for one night
I know they'd never match my sweet imagination, and everything looks worse in black and white

So it's a good thing we had Kodachrome film, color slide film to capture the colors of the time period. I always saw the black on white lyrics as a play on words for seeing something in writing, like a legal notice or the actually losses or gains of a company

In this case, the actual number of women he dated being likely less than he imagined.
