Hippo in the House

Lyrics

Deep in the continent of Africa

On the Zambezi River in Zambia

You can spend the day watchin' hippos play

Swimin' 'round and rollin' in the mud all day

 

Hip, hip, a Hippo in the House

Hip, hip, there's a Hippo in the House

 

It gave me a fright to hear a knock at the door

No one ever knocked that loud before!

So, I went to the window, and what did I see?

But a great big hippo looking' back at me!  

Singin' one, two, what to do?

Three, four, he broke the door, he's a hippo

 

Hip, hip, a Hippo in the House 

Hip, hip, there's a Hippo in the House

Hip, hip, a Hippo in the House 

Hip, hip, there's a Hippo in the House

 

Well, I scratched my head, 'cause it wasn't clear

What a hippopotamus was doin' here    

Then the hippo says, "Hey, would it be okay

For me to come inside with you to play?"

Singin' one, two, what to do?

Three, four, he broke the door

Five, six, it's gotta be fixed

Seven, eight, he's got too much weight, he's a hippo

 

Hip, hip, a Hippo in the House 

Hip, hip, there's a Hippo in the House

Hip, hip, a Hippo in the House 

Hip, hip, there's a Hippo in the House

 

'Played Who's Got the Button, and Blind Man's Bluff

Hot Buttered Beans and some other stuff

And the hippo said when the day was through

I guess I'd better get back to the zoo! 

Singin' one, two, what to do?

Three, four, he broke the door

Five, six, it's gotta be fixed

Seven, eight, he's got too much weight 

Now, nine, ten, do it again

One, two, what to do?

Three, four, he broke the door

Five, six, it's gotta be fixed

Seven, eight, he's got too much weight

Nine, ten, this is the end
