Flea Fly Flo is an echo song. Every line the leader says is echoed by the group (or 2nd person).

"When I was a little girl my dad would sing this with my sister and I while we waited for our mom to get out of the store. We'd sing it
faster and faster. The words we used were :

Flea! (Flea!) flea fly!
(Flea fly!) flea fly flow!
Veesta coomalotta
