It's a Tango Pink Flamingos

Qué onda, what's up, what's on today
There's solar wind, there’s gamma rays
There's underpass, bridge and tunnel trolls
There's supermassive black holes

But all those things they really don't matter
If it's spilling out like the waffle batter
If it's birthday cake on a plastic platter
Or crumbled up like candy wrappers

When we first met you were dressed in black
A sleeveless midi with an open back
You looked at me as if to say
Let's stay together throughout spacetime

Hello darling it's a tango
Hello darling, pink flamingos
Hello darling it's a tango
Hello darling, pink flamingos
It's a tango pink flamingos

Let's catch a cab in Ketchikan
Let's take a plane to Adelaide
Let's ride a train into Beijing
And get some Chinese chicken wings

If you wash your clothes at the laundromat
If you eat your lunch from a brown paper sack
If you get through the winter in a second hand jacket
To me you'll always be an aristocrat

When we first met you were dressed in black
With a pink umbrella and a yoga mat
You looked at me as if to say
Let's stay together throughout spacetime

Hello darling it's a tango
Hello darling, pink flamingos
Hello darling it's a tango
Hello darling, pink flamingos
It's a tango pink flamingos
