Flamingo, like a flame in the sky Flying over the island To my lover nearby Flamingo, with your tropical hue For it's you I rely on And the love that is true The wind sings a song to you as you go The song that I hear below The murmuring heart Flamingo, when the sun meets the sea Say farewell to my lover And hasten to me Aah-ooh, aah-ooh, ooh-ooh Flamingo.... Flamingo.... (Instrumental Break) Flamingo, when the sun meets the sea Say farewell to my lover And hasten to me Aah-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-aah (Transcribed by Monique Adriaansen - December 2003) (Corrections by Jack Clark - January 2004)
