Flamingoes Fly

This song is by Van Morrison and appears on the anthology The Philosopher's Stone (1998).

This song is a cover of "Flamingos Fly" by Sammy Hagar.
Lie by my side in the still of the night
And morning brings forth all its wonderous 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 flamingoes fly, flamingoes fly
Way over yonder in the clear blue sky
That's where flamingoes fly

Lie in the dark with the sweet sound of the nightingale
And listen for lark, and I will tell you a tale
Of winds blowin', blowin' outside
I wanna take that moonlight ride
When I hear you gently sigh
I wanna take you where flamingoes fly, flamingoes fly
Way over yonder, yeah in the clear blue sky
That's where flamingoes 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
Happiness touches me now
Who knows where it came from and how, but
When I hear you gently sigh
I wanna, wanna take you where flamingoes fly, flamingoes fly
Way over yonder in the clear blue sky
That's where flamingoes fly, flamingoes fly

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