Manfred Mann - Pretty flamingo
Tekst en muziek: Mark Barkan
(1966)






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 walks, she moves 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
Yes, I will
Yes, I will, I make her mine
Pretty flamingo
Sha la la
