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
