The Flamingo


Setting of a satirical poem by Gavin Ewart. The flamingo thinks he’s ever so cultured, but he doesn’t know which country his hero (Placido Domingo) was born in.
The file contains 3 versions – two are in the same key (low alto or high tenor) and one is transposed for mezzo soprano

Mi mi mi mi miiii
The flamingo is very highbrow
It scorns pop music, football and bingo
It would like to be an Italian tenor
Called “Flacido Flamingo”
