I Want A Hippopotamus For Christmas Words and Music by John Rox I want a hippopotamus for Christmas Only a hippopotamus will do No crocodiles, no rhinoceroses I only like hippopotamuses And hippopotamuses like me too ................ is just the chorus! Sorry that's all I know right at this instant This song is from 1953 when Gayla Peevey at 10 years old sang this song as she really did want a hippo for Christmas. She is alive today at 52 years old and Telus used this song with Hazina the Hippo for the TV Ad which is so successful, people are buying hippos instead of phones. I am trying to find the video of this commercial so if anyone has a copy from the TV, I would really like that. Azariah.
