Fifi the flea fell in love
With the clown from a flea circus fair
She gave him her heart
But she 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

Mm-mm-mm-mm-mm

One day Fifi left, just drove the clown wild
The poor little flea started crying
Never you mind, his manager said
I ought not to tell but she's dying
Dying for love of you, little flea
You've broken her heart with your lying
She couldn't stand till she had drove
Her love away without tryin'

Mm-mm-mm-mm-mm

When 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, wasted away
He lost his Fifi forever
So they opened her grave
And they put him inside
Now at last they are together

Mm-mm-mm-mm-mm
