Deblog 24: Christmas Hippo!

I love the current TV commercial below, not for it but for the hippo song.https://youtu.be/RAETKGleaPEThe singer is Gayla Peevey and this animated video was made by a 13-year-old named Chad Hylton — it’s the whole song!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k69yBIWjLIsAnd in case you wanted to know, here are the lyrics … priceless! Thank you and Merry Christmas, Gayla!

I want a hippopotamus for christmasOnly a hippopotamus will doDon’t want a doll, no dinky tinkertoyI want a hippopotamus to play with and enjoy

I want a hippopotamus for ChristmasI don’t think santa claus will mind, do you?He won’t have to use our dirty chimney flueJust bring him through the front doorThat’s the easy thing to do

I can see me now on Christmas morningCreeping down the stairsOh what joy and what surpriseWhen I open up my eyesTo see a hippo hero standing there

I want a hippopotamus for christmasOnly a hippopotamus will doNo crocodiles, no rhinocerosesI only like hippopotamusesAnd hippopotamuses like me too

Mom says the hippo would eat me up, but thenTeacher says a hippo is a vegetarian

There’s lots of room for him in our two-car garageI’d feed him there and wash him there and give him his massage

I can see me now on Christmas morningCreeping down the stairsOh what joy and what surpriseWhen I open up my eyesTo see a hippo hero standing there

I want a hippopotamus for ChristmasOnly a hippopotamus will doNo crocodiles or rhinocerosesI only like hippopotamusesAnd hippopotamuses like me too
