I Want A Hippopotamus For Christmas
Performed by Gayla Peevey (1953)
Lyrics & Music by John Rox



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,
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 rhinoceruses -
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 rhinoceruseses -
I only like hippopotamuseses...

And hippopotamuses like me too!
