Fifi the Flea fell in Love with the
Clown from the Flea Circus Fair.
She gave him her heart
but he still couldn't see that for such a long time
she  had cared.
Surrounded himself with the other girl fleas not knowing  he hurt her so badly.

She cried in the arms of his
manager friend
and
Declared that she loved the Clown madly.

Hmmm Hmmmm Hmmmm...

One day Fifi went and drove the clown wild. .....
  The poor little flea started crying.

Never you mind, said his manager friend, I ought not to tell that she's dying.
Dying of love for you little flea, you broke her heart with your lying.
She couldn't stand to see you throw
  her
love away without trying.

Hmmm...  Hmmmmm....... Hmmmmmm

The day Fifi died, the little clown vowed
He turn her grave every hour

When he saw her grave he broke down and cried...

And on it he placed a small flower..

Poor little flea, he wasted away...
He'd lost his Fifi forever...
They opened her grave
and
Put him inside....

Now at last.......they are together.

Hmmm...... Hmmmmmm.... Hmmmmm..
Fifi the Flea
The Sidekicks....1966
There isn't a midi for this little song that was popular in the winter of 1966.....It has a haunting minor tune.....a sad story about unrequited love, not actually as "silly" as the title implies.

This is dedicated to our friend "Chip" who died in a tragic auto accident in November of 1966.  Fifi the Flea was a favorite song of his.....Chip lived too short, died too hard.....A moment of Silence for you, our Friend...
