Hi MissFluteRock!

Good questions!

A flea is the very small insect that you can see in the song. They sometimes live on animals. 

The "cancan" is a type of dance, which you can see the jester (the man with the yellow and green costume) doing. So "Can it do the cancan like me?" means "Can it dance like me?"

Hope that helps!
