lyrics (and why can I now put pictures in the message?)

I went shopping today. I think the score is 5 gifts for them and 7 for me! For my family can not shop for me nor tell me what they want. I take my revenge where I can. :>
What do I get my Brother and Sister? They haven't said. Do the rest of you have to deal with an entire family group who all say "Oh we don't really need anything". *headmallet*
I want a list! I want clear stated lists! I want...like this


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

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


I can see me now on Christmas morning,
Creeping down the stairs
Oh what joy and what surprise
When I open my eyes
To see a hippo hero standing there

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
Only a hippopotamus will do
No crocodiles, no rhinoceroses
I only like hippopotamuses
And hippopotamuses like me too

Mom says the hippo would eat me up, but then
Teacher says a hippo is a vegetarian
(Short Music Interlude)
There's lots of room for him in our two-car garage
I'd feed him there and wash him there and give him his massage

I can see me now on Christmas morning,
Creeping down the stairs
Oh what joy and what surprise
When I open up my eyes
To see a hippo hero standing there

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
Only a hippopotamus will do
No crocodiles or rhinoceroseses
I only like hippopotamuseses
And hippopotamuses like me too!
