In a crystal blue sky

Pink flamingos, they fly,

At Salinas, they strut by,

In Araya.

‘neath the Coccoloba shade,

Pink daquiris and lemonade,

wine sipped and music played

In Araya.

Flamingo go go, Flamenco go go

Venezuelan lullaby

Arriba !

Flamingo go go, Flamenco go go

Venezuelan lullaby

Arriba !

Girls in pink feathers dance,

Brown eyes hint at romance,

If you dare to take a chance,

In Araya.

Bleached driftwood on the shore,

leaves you dreaming of more,

and that girl you adore,

In Araya !

Flamingo go go, Flamenco go go

Venezuelan lullaby

Arriba !

Flamingo go go, Flamenco go go

Venezuelan lullaby

Arriba !

This could be the Venezuelan sequel to Lord Invader’s (Rupert Grant) famous calypso “Rum and Coca Cola”. (!)

And I’m just not sure what I think about that… !
