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 ha 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
