I Want A Hippopotamus For Christmas | Lyrics

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas

Only a hippopotamus will do

Don't want a doll

No dinky tinker toy

I want a hippopotamus to play with and enjoy


I want a hippopotamus for Christmas

I don't think Santa Claus will mind do you

He won't have to use

A dirty chimney flue

Just bring him through the front door

That's the easy thing to do


I can see me now on Christmas morning

Creeping down the stairs

Oh what joy and what surprise

When I open up my eyes

To see a hippo hero standing there


I want a hippopotamus for Christmas

Only a hippopotamus will do

No crocodiles

No rhinoceroses

I only like hippopotamuses

And hippopotamuses like me too


(swing it)


Mom says a hippo would eat me up but then

Teacher says a hippo is a vegetarian


There's lots of room for him

In our two car garage

I'd feed him there

And wash him there

And give him his massage


I can see me now on Christmas morning

Creeping down the stairs

Oh what joy and what surprise

When I open up my eyes

To see a hippo hero standing there


I want a hippopotamus for Christmas

Only a hippopotamus will do

No crocodiles

Or rhinoceroses-es

I only like hippopotamuses-es

And hippopotamuses like me too
