Intro: 4/4  ‖ Bongos |  𝄎   ‖      |       |       |        ‖

 A                      D
1. Fla-min-gos walk and sway in peace
 A                          D
   See-ing this it makes my trou-b les cease
 A                               D
   The sun is hid-ing leav-ing a pink scar,
                   A
   That stretch-es right a-cross the sky,
                    D
   That's all we've seen so far

Bm                 E               D    E
   And all I do is look in-to your eyes.

      A                            D
Chorus: For that spe-cial touch of pa-ra-dise,
      A                          D
        Just a touch, a touch of pa-ra-dise,
    A/F#                        D     E
        Just a special touch of pa-ra-dise.

 A                          D
2. You hold my hand, that's when we kiss.
          A                                    D
   And it does-n't take long no, no, for me to get the gist
 A                              D
   Of this love that stretch-es out a-cross the land,
         A                         D
   Where rain-bows flash, as we're walk-ing in the sand.

Bm                 E               D   E
   And all I do is look in-to your eyes.

Chorus: For that spe-cial touch of pa-ra-dise,
      A                          D

    A/F#                        D     E
        Just a special touch of pa-ra-dise.

      C                       D
Bridge: A touch of spring and au-tumn sweet
                 A
        Well the trees vi-brate when our eyes meet
      C                            D
        And I think of all the love that we have been mak-ing
      A                         D        E          D/F#     E   
        You touch my hand and I walk off shak-ing |       |     |
