(NOTE: The syncopated chord progression in the verses of this song resurfaces in 'Look at the Fool's' Helpless.
A non-cross-eyed flamingo appeared in Sweet Surrender on the 'Greetings from LA' album)

The Dream Belongs To Me

I had a love affair
With a cross-eyed flamingo
And every morning
She’d meet by the river

On her wings
She would take me
Up to the sun
Sailing on the breezes

Singing
You belong to me
You belong to me

Just as long there is a pearl in the sea
Your sweet love belongs to me

Until one morning
The river was frozen
And my flamingo
Had flown away

Then I heard
The river saying
She has gone
To bear your baby

You have been chosen
By The Great Sylken
To be mated
With his cross-eyed flamingo

On new born wings
Your dreams will carry
In his heart
Your love will flow forever

You belong to me
You belong to me

Just as long there is a pearl in the sea
This dream belongs to me

I had a love affair
With a cross-eyed flamingo…
