Lyrics

THE HIPPOPOTAMUS
Lyrics by Al Hubbs - Music by Rhett Davis

THE HIPPOPOTAMUS IS LAZY
SO YOU SELDOM SEE HIM HUSTLE
BUT IF HE GETS THE URGE TO RUN
HE'S GOTTA LOTTA HIPPOPOTAMUSCLE

I OFTEN SEE HIM BY SOME RIVER
AS HE SLYLY STEALS A KISS
WHEN HE THINKS NO ONE IS LOOKING
FROM SOME PRETTY HIPPOPOTAMISS

BRIDGE:
THE HIPPOPOTAMUS HAS A FAMILY
WITH ONE SISTER AND A BROTHER
HE HAS AN AWESOME FEARSOME FATHER
ND A LOVING HIPPOPOTAMOTHER

SOME FOLKS THINKS HE'S CRANKY
HE'S SO BIG FROM NORTH TO SOUTH
BUT HE HAS FRIENDLY SMILE WITH A
GREAT BIG HIPPOPOTAMOUTH

THE HIPPOPOTAMUS ISN'T CLUMSY
JUST A LITTLE ROUGH I GUESS
AND AT YOUR BIRTHDAY PARTY HE LEAVES
AN UNTIDY HIPPOPOTAMESS

BRIDGE:
HE DOESN'T EAT THE THINGS WE DO
LIKE KEY LIME PIE OR CUSTARD
BUT ON HIS HOTDOG HE WILL SPREAD
A LOTTA HIPPOPOTAMUSTARD

THE HIPPOPOTAMUS CAN'T GO SHOPPING
AND HE DOESN'T THINKS IT'S FUNNY
THERE ARE ONLY EMPTY POCKETS IN HIS PANTS
AND NO HIPPOPOTAMONEY

I'VE SEEN EVERY TYPE OF CREATURE
(SO) FORGIVE ME IF I BOAST
OF ALL THE WORLD'S GREAT ANIMALS
I LIKE THE HIPPOPOTAMOST
