The Lyrics

It kicks its right leg up
It puts its left leg down
Has beautiful colors that result from a plankton binge
They live a rather long life
A 50 year life range
The few sounds they make are straaaaange

You'd think it'd lose its grip
And fall to the shore
Yeah, but they are so well posed they'll never fall I'm sure
Seems that they're always wired
Never see them lie
Don't know how they sleep or flyyyyyyy

They're Flamingos
With a beak long and tight and feathers light for the flight
Ooh Those Flamingos
When their hunger arrives gen'rally stick to green plant life
Yeah-They're Flamingos
but don't you run at them and make them mad 'cause they might bite

It's one tall bird with bright coloration
That's why we honor them with plastic things
They're endangered from all our vocations
And they just don't taste quite like fried chicken wiiings--no

They're laying eggs in mud
The big ones feed on bugs
and they are social, yes with THEIR friends they love to talk--oh yeah
If they run down the street,
They're getting ready to fly
It's such a pre--tty sight

They're flamingos
With that pink in the sky you know they're necks upright
Ooh they're flamingos
When their beaks go for dives they eat but rather light
Oooh-They're flamingos
And I don't mean to stair at their lovely pink hair toniiiiiight

lovely pink hair
lovely pink hair
God they are so pretty can I take on home and keep one oh gawk gawk gawk gawk gawk gawk gawk

(Crazy nonsense flamingo noises and me imitating them for the rest of the song)
God you know I want one
God I want one-nooo

pink pink pink pink

Yoh Yoh Yoh
It's Flamingos
Its Flamingos
Its Flamingos
Gawk Gawk Gawk Gawk

You're in the pink with this one...even if the one bomber gave you the bird! ;D

Did you really just do an epic Aerosmith song about flamingos? I honestly think this one is even more impressive than your epic Foreigner song about Dead Vikings!

I love those flamingos and find myself wishing to go back to the zoo to see them. They are one of those exotic, elegant animals. I also enjoy standing like a flamingo, with one leg bent up and one leg standing, just like Suzanne Somers from Three's Company in the intro for the later seasons. The only kind of flamingos we owned were those plastic yard ones. Here's 555's still standing for this one.

When I was in the Navy and reported for duty in Florida my sister asked me to send a picture of some flamingos for her. Imagine her surprise when I did just that - the majestic birds were at Epcot Center at Disney World in Orlando. Hey, I called her bluff! She asked for it, she got it. Like Christie Marie M, I also dig those amazing birds. They also were featured (MANY of them) on the opening credits for "Miami Vice".
