Pretty Flamingo by Manfred Mann
Let me tell you 'bout the Manfreds
The music that they're puttin' down
They started to play
On a rainy day
& the people came from miles around
They didn't come for the rhythm
They didn't come for the beat
The people of the town
Came just to stand around
& see the singer lookin' sweet
Mike Hugg plays the drums, yeah
Tom McGuiness plays the diamond bass
But the one in the middle
Sings 'Hey diddle diddle'
God, he's just a pretty face
They couldn't have!
Manfred Mann plays the organ
Mike Vickers plays guitar
& there's a geezer called Paul
Who's so thin & so tall
& sure wants to be a star
(x6): See the singer lookin'...
