[Intro]

G       Em         Am7      D


[Verse 1]

  G          Em         Am7          B7
A bold hippopotamus was standing one day
        Em          A7        D      D7
On the banks of the cool Shalimar
   G            Em           Am7        B7
He gazed at the bottom as he peacefully lay
       Em           A7      D       D7
By the light of the evening star
 Dm       E           Dm          E
Away on a hilltop sat combing her hair
  Dm        E7     Am      
A fair hippopotama maid
    A7     D         A7     D
The hippopotamus was no ignoramus
    Am            A7        D       D7
And sang her this sweet serenade


[Chorus]

G    Em   Am7      D
Mud, mud, glorious mud
        Em            A7          D           D7
There's nothing quite like it for cooling the blood
   G         G7      C           A7
So follow me follow, down to the hollow
    Am           G         D7       G     Em       Am7      D
And there let us wallow in glorious mud


[Verse 2]

    G         Em        Am7        B7
The fair hippopotama he aimed to entice
          Em          A7      D      D7
From that seat on the hilltop above.
   G          Em          Am7        B7
As she hadn't got a ma to give her advice
     Em         A7         D       D7
Came tiptoeing down to her love.      
     Dm          E        Dm         E
Like thunder the forest reechoed the sound
       Dm             E7           Am      
Of the song that they sang as they met.
    A7   D      A7         D
His inamorata adjusted her garter
    Am         A7         D       D7
And lifted her voice in duet.


[Chorus]

G    Em   Am7      D
Mud, mud, glorious mud
        Em            A7          D           D7
There's nothing quite like it for cooling the blood
   G         G7      C           A7
So follow me follow, down to the hollow
    Am           G         D7       G      Em      Am7      D
And there let us wallow in glorious mud


[Verse 3]

     G         Em     Am7         B7
Then more hippopotami began to convene
       Em            A7       D      D7
On the banks of that river so wide.
  G          Em           Am7        B7
I wonder now what am I to say of the scene
     Em            A7       D       D7
That ensued by the Shalimar side.
     Dm           E            Dm             E
They dived all at once with an ear-splitting Splosh
     Dm          E7      Am      
Then rose to the surface again.
  A7      D       A7     D
A regular army of hippopotami
    Am           A7         D       D7
All singing this haunting refrain.


[Chorus]

G    Em   Am7      D
Mud, mud, glorious mud
        Em            A7          D           D7
There's nothing quite like it for cooling the blood
   G         G7      C           A7
So follow me follow, down to the hollow
    Am           G         D7       G
And there let us wallow in glorious mud
