I Want A Hippopotamus For Christmas
Gayla Peevey
1953 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 up 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

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!

Wheely Down
Richard Thompson

She womanly lay like the lay of the land The land around Wheely Down And every curve was a high, high hill
To hang above the town
 From Holland they came to make the maps
And they had made her well For the rivers danced all across the green And the pinewood sweet did smell

As far as ever a man can see
It yields him more and more And every house he washes it white And he covers it all with straw
Except for the fool who makes his home
Upon the flooded ground And the still on the tide is a glass to the eyes
That stare out of Wheely Down

All things must change within the earth
The moving and the lame For the worms will rot the miller's wheel
And the rats will eat the grain And the armies of deliverance
Are run into the ground And the kestrel turns in the empty skies
On high over Wheely Down

From Henry the Human Fly
