I WANT A Hippopotamus 4 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
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 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!

Do you know that holiday tune? I just love it! So much I thought I would share all the lyrics!  I crochet this Amigurumi Hippo in hopes he would be small enough as a Holiday ornament for an ornament swap I joined, I think he is to big to call an ornament but isn't he so cute! I might put him in my tree but not everyone stuffs toys up in the branches like I do! I go crazy with the lights and ornaments on my Holiday tree, my most favorite are handmade and vintage glass ornaments like mother always had, I admit I am a fan of PEANUTS gang and have a small collection of ceramic ornaments. Christmas is my favorite time of year! Looks as if Hippopotamus stays with me this year! ;)
