Fifi the Flea

Fifi the flea fell in love With a clown from a flea circus fair She gave him her heart But he still couldn’t see That for such a long time she had cared He put himself round all the other girl fleas Unaware that he hurt her so badly She cried in the arms of his manager friend And declared that she loved the clown madly Mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm The day Fifi left this drove the clown wild Poor little flea started crying ‘Never you mind’, his manager said ‘I have nothing to tell but she’s dying Dying for love of you little flea You’ve broken her heart with your lying She couldn’t bear to see you throw Her love away without trying’ Mmm mmm mmmm mmmm mm The day Fifi died the little clown vowed He’d tend her grave every hour He broke down and cried When he saw her grave And on it he placed a small flower Poor little flea he’s wasted away He’d lost his Fifi forever So they opened her grave, put him inside Now at last they are together Mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm
