I want a Hippopotamus for Christmas


Oh, I want a hippopotamus for Christmas...

Only a hippopotamus will do.

No crocodiles... or rhinoceroses....

I only like hippopotamuses....

And hippopotamuses like me too!

Thank you, thank you very much. *takes a bow*

I'd say it's virtually impossible to be sad when you hear, "Oh I want a hippopotamus for Christmas".

So... even though it isn't Christmas yet...

I just thought I'd start early.

Hippopotamuses are pretty touch to come by you know.

Hope you had a great weekend.


  1. It's pretty hard to feel bad when singing any Christmas songs, as long as you stay away from maudlin country cryin'-in-muh-beer-cuz-yer-done-gone songs.

    "Don't want a doll, no dinky Tinkertoys, I want a hippopotamus to play with and enjoy."

  2. Maybe Santa will bring you a hippopotamus this year for Christmas, Chelsi. Or perhaps a pony that resembles one!

    Love your pics as always!

  3. A very hippy song to make everyone feel great. You probably want a hippopotamus because they are related to horses from way back when. They are cute, hope you get one for Christmas.

  4. I think Shel Silverstein wrote that tune! Fantastic eh?
    I hope you get exactly what you want- everyday! Make it so!

  5. Great pics!! I smiled. I am actually getting kinda excited for Xmas, LOL! :)
