On his horn he blew,
Then out the window he flew.

"Flew" is the most correct, "Flied" sounds really strange, and Flowed is the past participle of Flow e.g. The water flowed

"Flown" is a word I would use to describe something flying, e.g. "The plane has flown away", whilst "flew" is what I would use to say that I had taken part in the flying, e.g. "We flew to Mallorca at 5 PM".
