I Want A Hippopotamus For Christmas  

I [G]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[D7]joy

I [G]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 [D7]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 [A7]hippo hero [D]standing [D7]there
I [G]want a hippopotamus for Christmas      Only a hippopotamus will [D]do
[D7]Mom says the hippo would eat me up, but then
[A]Teacher says a hippo is a vegetar[D7]ian
I [G]want a hippopotamus for Christmas        Only a hippopotamus will [D]do
[D7]No crocodiles or rhinoceroses
[A7]I only like hippopota[D7]muses       And [A7]hippopota[D7]muses like me [G]too!
