I Want A Hippopotamus For Christmas

 GD
want a hippopotamus for Christmas     Only a hippopotamus will do
 D7
 Don\'t want a doll, no dinky Tinker Toy
 AD7
want a hippopotamus to play with and enjoy

 G
want a hippopotamus for Christmas
 D
I don\'t think Santa Claus will mind, do you?
 D7
He won\'t have to use our dirty chimney flue
 AD7
Just bring him through the front door, that\'s the easy thing to do

 G7C
I can see me now on Christmas morning,
 G7C
 creeping down the stairs
 D7
Oh what joy and what surprise
 G
when I open up my eyes
 A7DD7
to see a hippo hero standing there

 GD
want a hippopotamus for Christmas      Only a hippopotamus will do
 D7
 Mom says the hippo would eat me up, but then
 AD7
 Teacher says a hippo is a vegetarian

 GD
want a hippopotamus for Christmas        Only a hippopotamus will do
 D7
 No crocodiles or rhinoceroses
 A7D7A7D7G
 I only like hippopotamuses       And hippopotamuses like me too!
