I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas – Best Christmas Songs Lyrics

I-Want-a-Hippopotamus-for-Christmas

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
Only a hippopotamus will do
I don’t want a doll, no dinky Tinkertoy
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
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 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 the hippo would eat me up
But then teacher says a hippo is a vegetarian

I can see me now on Christmas morning
Creeping down the stairs
Oh, what a joy and what surprise
When I open up my eyes
To see a hippo hero standing there

I want a hippopotamus (I want a hippopotamus)
I want it (I want it), I really, really, really want
A hippopotamus (hippopotamus)

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
Only a hippopotamus will do
I don’t want a doll, no dinky Tinkertoy
I want a hippopotamus to play with and enjoy

No crocodiles, no rhinoceroses
I only like hippopotamuses
And hippopotamuses like me too
