I Want A Hippopotamus For Christmas

Gayla Peevey, recorded in 1953; lyrics and music by John Rox

[G] I want a hippopotamus for Christmas; Only a hippopotamus will [D] do
[D7] Don't want a doll, no dinky Tinker Toy; I [A] want a hippopotamus to play with and en- [D]joy

[G] I want a hippopotamus for Christmas; I don't think Santa Claus will mind, do [D] you?
He [D7] won't have to use our dirty chimney flue
Just [A]  bring him through the front door, that's the easy thing to [D] do

I can [G7] see me now on [C] Christmas morning, [G7] creeping down the [C] stairs
Oh what [D7] joy and what surprise, when I [G] open up my eyes
to see a [A] hippo hero [D] standing [D7] there

[G] I want a hippopotamus for Christmas; Only a hippopotamus will [D] do
[D7] No crocodiles, no rhinoceroses; [A7] I only like hippopota- [D7] muses
And [A7] hippopota- [D7] muses like me [G] too

(Short Music Interlude)
[G] [G] [D]
[D7] Mom says the hippo would eat me up, but then
[A7] Teacher says a hippo is a vegeteri- [D7] an

(Short Music Interlude)
[G] [G] [D]
[D7] There's lots of room for him in our two-car garage
[A7] I'd feed him there and wash him there and give him his [D7] massage

I can [G7] see me now on [C] Christmas morning, [G7] creeping down the [C] stairs
Oh what [D7] joy and what surprise, when I [G] open up my eyes
to see a [A] hippo hero [D] standing [D7] there

[G] I want a hippopotamus for Christmas; Only a hippopotamus will [D] do
[D7] No crocodiles, no rhinoceroseses; [A7] I only like hippopota- [D7] museses
And [A7] hippopota- [D7] muses like me [G] too
