    Lyrics

    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 a dirty chimney fleu
    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 and see a hippo hero
    standing there

    I want a hippopotamus for Christmas,
    only a hippopotamus will do
    No crocodiles, no rhinosorusses,
    I only like hippopotamusses
    and hippopotamusses like me too

    Mom says the hippo would eat me up but then,
    teacher says the 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 and see a hippo hero
    standing there

    I want a hippopotamus for Christmas,
    only a hippopotamus will do
    No crocodiles, no rhinosorusses,
    I only like hippopotamusses
    and hippopotamusses like me too

      Shirley Temple did not sing this song. It was made famous by Gayla Peevey.
