On our block all of the guys call her flamingo
Cause her hair glows like the sun
And her eyes can light the sky
When she moves she walks so fine like a flamingo
Crimson dress that clings so tight
She's out of reach and out of sight

When she walks by she brightens up the neighbourhood
Oh every guy would make her his if he just could
If she just would

Some sweet day I'll make her mine, pretty flamingo
Then every guy will envy me
Cause paradise is where I'll be

Pretty flamingo, pretty flamingo

When she walks by she brightens up the neighbourhood
Oh every guy would make her his if he just could,
If she just would
Some sweet day I'll make her mine, pretty flamingo
Then every guy will envy me
Cause paradise is where I'll be
(Sha la la, la la la la pretty flamingo)
Some day I?ll make her mine,
(Sha la la, la la la la pretty flamingo)
Yes I will, yes I will, make her mine
(Sha la la . . . (fades))

    Fabulous. A sunny song. I heard it as a teen - back then i could only decode a few words. But it caught you.

    Young guy,one of many develops a strong sexual desire for an apparently unattainable girl who loves to strut her stuff. Did he ever touch base? We will never know.
