Flamingo Baby  Violent Femmes

Song: Flamingo Baby
Artist: Violent Femmes
Album: Why Do Birds Sing?
Transcribed by Ian Strung <>
intro: C
[C]Yeah, you're a flamingo, you stand on one leg
you're a flam[F]ingo baby, you hatched from an [C]egg
Well, you hold your foot up so d[F]elicately over the [G]sea
And [C]when it comes down [F]it comes down on [C]me
[C]I used to want to hump you, I used to want to rock and roll
I was attracted to your gracefulness[F] but then surprise t[C]ook its toll
Now I guess I'd better go out now[F] and find s[G]omething new
And [C]all I'm left with is a cra[F]ving for some fla[C]mingo stew
[C]Now beauty's in the gutter, and loveliness is off her throne
In the eyes of the beholder[F] he's gone and now he f[C]eels kind of alone
But this feeling is the kind that[F] will always short[G]ly pass
I'm [C]gonna find myself another b[F]ird and roll on down[C] the grass
(repeat first verse)
