Lie by my side in the still of the night
And morning brings forth all its wondrous delight
You couldn't have made it more plain
When I hear that soft refrain and I hear you gently sigh

I wanna take you where flamingos fly, flamingos fly
Way over yonder in the clear blue sky
That's where flamingos fly

Lie in the dark with the sweet sound of the nightingale
And listen for lark and I will tell you a tale
Soft winds blowin', blowin' outside
I wanna take that moonlight ride, when I hear you gently sigh

I wanna take you where flamingos fly, flamingos fly
Way over yonder, yeah in the clear blue sky
That's where flamingos fly

Silently waiting for that morning light to shine
Yeah, and I'm looking at you, looking at me
And I'm looking at you and anticipating
Each and every, each and every sign

And I'm looking at you, looking at me
And I'm looking at you, looking at me
Looking at you, looking at me, looking at you

I follow the road that will take me, take me back home
And carry that load where the deer and the provincial angels roam
Your happiness touching me now
Who knows where it came from and how, but
When I hear you gently sigh

I wanna, wanna take you where flamingos fly, flamingos fly
Way over yonder in the clear blue sky
That's where flamingos fly, flamingos fly

Way over yonder in the clear blue sky
That's where flamingos fly, you see those flamingos fly
Ya see those, ya see those, ya see those
Ya see those, ya see those, ya see those flamingos fly

Look over yonder, look over yonder, darling
Look over yonder, darling
Ya take it by the ocean, ya take it, ya take it by the ocean
