Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

No offense to pink flamingo lovers! I am quite fond of them myself...
On our block ol' lady buys lots of flamingos
'Cause she loves those plastic ones
Sit there like some tacky prize

Her front yard has up to five hundred flamingos
I confess that pink's so bright
Far into space lights up the night

We swear and sigh - she blightens up the neighborhood
Yet still she buys those fake silk trees
A windmill stood near ducks of wood

Some sweet day we'll take all those sh*tty flamingos
The whole suburb will 'de-camp' see
Raise value of our property

Sh*tty flamingos, sh*tty flamingos

Her lawn's a sty - she blightens up the neighborhood
And soon this guy will make his biz
To make 'em good pink firewood

Some sweet day I'll undermine all her flamingos
I'll make 'em fly to Landfill Three
And little pink cubelets they'll be

Sha-la-la la la la la... sh*tty flamingos

(repeat and fade)

(ABC) Way to ignore the site restrictions! This parody was extremely entertaining. I know absolutely no one who admits to owning lawn flamingos, and all is right with the world.
