SPANISH FLEA      
By Cissy and Julius Wechter


There was a lit-tle Span-ish flea
-1    -1* 2  -2 -5   -5   4   -4
A rec-ord star he thought he'd be
3 -2* -2   2   4     4    -3*  -3
He’d heard of sing-ers like Bea-tles
-2     2   -1* -1   -2  -3*  3   -3*
The Chip-munks he'd seen on T-   V
4    -2   3*    4*   -3* 4* -5* -6
Why not a  lit-tle Span-ish flea?
-6   7  -6  7   -6  5*   4   -2

And so he hid
-5  -5 4  -4
In-side a  dog-gie from Ma-drid
3   -2* -2  2   4    4  -3* -3
Ar-riv-ing here in the ci-ty
-2  2  -1*  -1  -2 -3*  3 -3*
Still sing-ing his sweet har-mo- ny
4      -2   3*  4*  -3*   4* -5* -6
As broke as an- y flea could be
-6   7   -6  7 -6  5*    4   -3* 

He walked a-round
-3*  4    -5 -5*
As  if he owned the town
-5* -6 -5*  7   -6   -5*
Hum-ming his pint sized mel-o-dy
5*   4   -3*  3*    3*  -3* -4 4
With his gui-tar he knew he'd be a  star
3*   -3*  4   4* 4*  -5*  5*  -6 -5* 5*
And in his old home town, 
-4  -3* 3* -2*  -2*  3*
how proud they'd be
-3*  -3    -3*    4
Then all at once he met a man
-1   -1* 2   -2  -5 -5  4 -4
Who said, "I'll help you if I  can"
3    -2*   -2    2    4   4 -3* -3
He list-ened first to his song
-2   2  -1*  -1    -2 -3*  3
Then he sang right a-long for you see
-3*  4   -2   3*   4* -3*  4* -5*  -6  
He loved the lit-tle Span-ish flea
-6  7    -6   7   -6  5*   4  -3*
“You’ll be the rage.
-3*     4   -5  -5*
I’ll put you on the stage
-5*  -6  -5* 7  -6   -5*
In cos-tumes like you’ve nev-er worn.”
5*  4   -3*   3*   3*    -3* -4  4
Well, at  a glance
3*    -3* 4   4*
he knew this was his chance
4*  -5*  5*  -6  -5*   5*
Yes all at once a  Span-ish star was born.
-4  -3* 3*  -2* -2* 3*  -3*  -3  -3*  4
For when the peo-ple heard him play
-1   -1*  2  -2  -5   -5    4   -4
They all be-gan to shout “O-le!”
3    -2* -2  2  4   4    -3* -3
He was the pride of the na-tion,
-2  2  -1*  -1   -2 -3* 3   -3*
A sing-ing sen-sa-tion was he
4  -2   3*  4* -3* 4*  -5* -6
Though he was just a Span-ish flea.
-6     7   -6  7  -6  5*   5   -3*
