Dr. Demento – I Want A Hippopotamus For Christmas lyrics

I want a Hippopotamus for Christmas
Only a Hippopotamus will do
Don't wanna 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 threw the front door
That's the easiest thing to do
I can see me now on Christmas morning
Creeping down the stairs
Oh, a 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
Mom says a Hippo will 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, a 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 rhinoceroseses
I only like Hippopotamuseses
And Hippopotamuses like me too
