Guinea Pig In Love

Parasite In Paradise
Written by R. Rat / S. Brint

Hello I'm Colin. I'm a flea
There isn't all that much of me
But I'm very content
As you can probably see
Well, living here
How else could you be?
I've got a computer
And a BMX bike
I can sit on the saddle
Whenever I like
Have interesting talks
With Roland and Kevin
It's really my idea of heaven

I'm a parasite in paradise
I'm the envy of all other lice
I had no idea life could be so nice
For a parasite in paradise

He's a parasite in paradise
He's the envy of all other lice
I had no idea life could be so nice
For a parasite in paradise

I had a job in a circus
With a poodle called Percy
But it wasn't much fun
Cos no-one could see me
And all that pink fur
Made me sneeze
I wasn't the happiest of fleas
I thought there must be more to life
But I'm far too young to think of a wife
So I left my big top
To come and live in this sewer
It's like catching a cold
And finding a cure

I'm a parasite in paradise
I'm the envy of all other lice
I had no idea life could be so nice
For a parasite in paradise

He's a parasite in paradise
He's the envy of all other lice
I had no idea life could be so nice
For a parasite in paradise

Last week my mother said to me
You were born to be someone
You were born a flea
And even if you're working at the BBC
You're a member of a wonderful family
You could travel to Scunthorpe
Ibiza or Poland
But you'd never meet another superstar
Like Roland
So keep your nose clean
And make sure you behave
Living down there in Roland's Ratcave

I'm a parasite in paradise
I'm the envy of all other lice
I had no idea life could be so nice
For a parasite in paradise

He's a parasite in paradise
He's the envy of all other lice
I had no idea life could be so nice
For a parasite in paradise

If you want to drop in
And visit me
You'll find that I'm
A very sociable flea
We could have some cake
And a cup of tea
Or a nice pork pie with some celery
Well I must go now
Before the music stops
Bet you've never met a flea who body pops
Let's meet again
It's been really really nice
For me, a flea
In paradise

I'm a parasite in paradise
I'm the envy of all other lice
I had no idea life could be so nice
For a parasite in paradise

He's a parasite in paradise
He's the envy of all other lice
I had no idea life could be so nice
For a parasite in paradise
