Flamingo Legs is the twelfth track on Damn Skippy. According to Neil in the album's commentary track, the song's lyrics have no meaning.


I love when opportunity knocks.
It rocks the stripes right outta my socks.
I love the world and everything else;
The trampolines and jingling bells.

I’d love to say there’s not a thing I detest.
I’d love to tie a piece of string to the best of what I know and keep it near,
But I won’t.
I’d love to feel devoid of fear,
But I don’t.
And I prefer it that way. I prefer it that way now.

Living, living underneath a rock.
Injuriously curious, the outline drawn in chalk.

I know the words but don’t understand
The karaoke effigy man.
Flamingo legs of yellow and green
Attached to grandma’s sewing machine.

I’d love to say it’s only fair, but it’s not.
I’d love to form a perfect square.
I forgot my love of rolling down the hill on the lawn.
I never noticed it until it was gone.
And I prefer it that way. I prefer it that way now.

Living, living underneath a rock.
Living (Under the catacomb.)
In this (Pile of styrofoam.)
Outline drawn in chalk.


  • The intro of this song features a heavily modified sample of Don't Laugh (I Love You) by Ween.
  • Neil implied in the album's commentary that the original title for this song was Living Underneath a Rock, but he didn't like it and renamed it Flamingo Legs after a lyric in the second verse.
