Song Lyrics:
I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas(1953)
Words and music by John Rox
performed by Gayla Peevey

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
Only a hippopotamus will do
Don't want a doll, no dinky Tinkertoy
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 rhinoceroseses
I only like hippopotamuseses
And hippopotamuses like me too!

I am really really curious. Can SOMEONE clue me in?
I love this song, "I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas". I figured it was just for Christmas. And then comes along a new TV commercial for a company called Expedia. THEY are using the song in the background. I can't help but wonder what gives. I can't help but laugh and naturally I can't take them seriously at all since all I can think of is Gayla Peevey belting it out. Email me back if you have an answer. I'd love to know.
