What do the first lines of Leeuloop mean?

The first lines of the song are:

daar is 'n lelike ding wat kopwys

in parys

iets heeltemal anders as 'n bike race

of 'n kopluis

of by bachelor parties muis wys

I'm Dutch. Somebody told me about this song. And I foresee a hype in The Netherlands when this song ever gets translated into Dutch. But what do the first lines mean? Especially the words kopwys, and by 'n bachelorparty muis wys?

In elk geval baie dankie en ek hoop dat iemand hierdie woorde stap vir stap kan verduidelik!

    It's a play on words.

    In Afrikaans "kopwys" could refer to you head or your penis, and "muis" could refer to a mouse or a vagina.

    Afrikaans is littered with words with double meanings like that eg doos could mean box or vagina, naai could mean to do needle work and sowing or to have sex.

    an ugly thing is rearing it's head

    in Parys

    something completely different to a bike race

    or head lice

    or mouse showing at a bachelor's party

    (The song refers to the South African town of Parys)

    ("Muiswys" has many different meanings, depending on the context that it is used in. Use your imagination though, what else could it mean if the song says that it (muiswys), is done at bachelor's parties!)
