lyrics

Beach ball bouncing blithely,
Oh, to see what you must see
When you’re spinning high above us
In your red, yellow and green
A hundred-thousand people
All reaching up to touch you
But I know that you will find me
Just like love will always find me

It started out as nothing
But you know how these things go
A war comes from a whisper
And a lisp becomes a lingo

The pounding’s getting louder
And we’ll surely have to leave here
But all I can think of are
The Hollywood Park flamingos

We all saw it happen
The magician’s assistant
Hued a bit too close
And severed him at his midsection
But he went on with his lecture
(God bless his weary soul)
On the immaculate and gentlemanly
Art of deception

It started out as nothing much
But you know how things go
A war comes from a whisper
And a lisp becomes a lingo

The pounding’s getting closer
And we’ll surely have to leave here
But all I can think of are
The Hollywood Park flamingos

All around the camp
The kids are building clever traps
The men are plotting spite checks
And the dogs are licking scraps
The moon is sitting high in the sky
Projecting grace in pale white light

My mind is running wild
And I continue to recite
The only prayer that I know
And then I’ll call it a night:
“I know that you will yet find me,
Just like love will always find me.”
