Can Anyone Help with an Italian Song about a Little Flea?

Hello Lisa:

When I was young, my Italian Grandma used to sing a song about a little flea. The lyrics were… uno, due, tres, quatro, cinque, seis, un saltina sola sullo… something.

It was about the flea jumping on the dog and saying excuse me, etc… Do you know it?

If anyone knows the lyrics to this song, please let us know about them in the comments below.

Thanks!

Lisa

    La Pulce, di Sergio Endrigo

    Un, due, tre,
    quattro, cinque e sei,
    un saltino e sono sulla gamba di costei.

    Un, due, tre, quattro, cinque e sei,
    mi permetta un morsettino,
    scusi non ce l’ho con lei.

    Un, due, tre, quattro, cinque e sei,
    la pancina adesso รจ piena.
    Ciao, goodbye, aufwiedersen

    One, two, three,
    Four, five and six,
    a little jump and I’m on the leg of this one.

    One, two, three, four, five and six
    Will you allow me a little bit(e),
    Excuse-me if I don’t have (eat) it with you.

    One, two, three, four, five and six
    my little belly is now full,
    ciao, goodbye, auf wiedersehn
    (goodbye in Italian, English and German)

    Thank you so much for this. I have a 2yr old granddaughter and I want to sing it to her, as I did my own children. I kind of guessed on the lyrics when they were little. I really appreciate your help!!!!
