I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
A hippopotamus is all I want
I don't want a dog or rhinoceros
All I want for Christmas is a hippopotamus
And a hippopotamus wants me too

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
A hippopotamus is all I want
I don't want a dog because a dog's such a fuss
All I want for Christmas is a hippopotamus
And a hippopotamus wants me too

I can see me now on Christmas morning
Creeping down the stairs
Over joyed with surprise
When I open up my eyes
I see a hippo hero standing there

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
A hippopotamus is all I want
I don't want a dog or a rhinoceros
All I want for Christmas is a hippopotamus
And a hippopotamus wants me too
