The Lyrics

You had never seen such a travelling show
'Twould cost you fifty cents, not much money to blow
Itchin' to see some critters, you could!
As far as the visual, with magnifying glass you'd see it good

Mitzy's Trav'ling Fleas
We'd trumpet through the center of the town, our circus
Mitzy's Trav'ling fleas
On Friday night, the crowd wouldn't make a sound
We brought the whole house down

Talented Roy would swim like a seal
Jump down a slide, ride a bike with one wheel
Madame Christine, the sweet little one
Did her acrobatics
And with cannon shot Tim 'cross the proscenium

Mitzy's Trav'ling Fleas
We got ol' P.T. Barnum feelin' down, so jealous
Mitzy's Trav'ling Fleas
Also played for the high folks wearing crowns
We didn't need no clowns

Then one day in Lincoln, NE we caught hell
With a pooch, cramped our style
Three hours later, Mitzy got in trouble
The Health Department stood us to triallll...uh-huhhhh
Didn't dig Flea Circus Stylllle...nuh-uh!

Yes, 'twas quite the time, yes, just so long ago
They'd whoop for the chance to see our lil' old show
We'd come around the neighborhood
Some of them was hostile, yeah some people never understood

Mitzy's Trav'ling Fleas
The cutest little critters ever found, can't scratch us
Mitzy's Trav'ling Fleas
Then the day came got broke up by a hound
But known the world around

Mitzy's Trav'ling Fleas
We'd trumpet throught the center of the town, our circus...(fade)

(Artistry) I don't know what a proscenium is, but despite that fleeting moment of confusion I really enjoyed this parody! P.T. Flea would approve. 555!
