I Want A Hippopotamus For Christmas.

Here is a Christmas song that once hear, sticks in your brain and you will find yourself singing the first line all day long.

I want a Hippopotamus for Christmas“.

Christmas Novelty Song Lyrics: By John Rox. (1902–1957).
Vocals: by Gayla Rienette Peevey, a former singer and child star, who recorded the song when she was just 10 years old, back in 1953.

I want a Hippopotamus for Christmas.

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 our dirty chimney flue,
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, or rhinoceroses,
I only like hippopotamuses,
And hippopotamuses like me too.
Mom says the 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,
I only like hippopotamuses,
And hippopotamuses like me too.
