Lyrics

Standin' at the door of the Pink Flamingo cryin' in the rain,
It was a kind of so-so love
And I'm gonna make sure it doesn't happen again,
You and I had to be the standing joke of the year,

Love the comments on this song. I couldn't agree more. AWESOME cover. I'll admit, I never heard the original before I heard this cover - I had to work backwards. :) David Gray makes amazing music! If you have never seen him live, do yourself a favor and do it before you die. Well worth whatever you have to pay!

Why do people waste their time with derogatory comments about this song or artist? Get a life. Amazing song, brilliant artist, love everything I've ever heard of David Gray.

Thanks for your opinion, Catarina...f o r t u n a t e l y , you're in the vast minority in thinking this song is boring and dumb. Great cover, with a little nod to Van the Man at the end.

Pretty boring dumb song. No offense but how can anyone derive any kind of enjoyment from this song?

Love the little tribute to Van at the end. One of the better covers you'll ever hear.

It took me a few seconds to be sure, but I knew I had heard this song before. I can't believe David Gray covered this - and I actually love this version too :-)

One of my all time favorites by David. He's a genius.

Crazy I didn't even like David Gray till I heard this song. The original was brilliant but the fact that he covered it gives me a whole new respect for the man. Nice job very beautiful rendition.

This is a great cover.
Actually, this is what a cover version should be.

Too many cover versions only attempt to recreate the original... no originality!
Not this one.

Soft Cell's original is a classic!
It's one of the best songs ever.
The extended version with Tofani's incredible clarinet is unbeatable and shouldn't be overlooked.

To Gray's credit, he didn't even attempt to recreate Soft Cell's original.
Instead, he made his own version.
And... it's not bad at all.
I also like Gray's cover.

I love how this song is verry allusive to Van Morisson.
