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!

I Want A Hippopotamus For Christmas - John Rox 1953

I was featured yesterday on A Perfectly Paper blog! It’s so exciting to see and read about my shops and to get support from people on the web. Check out her blog and site. She has an Etsy store where she sells really beautiful paper flowers. They look so real!

Stay tuned. I’m hoping to get a blog post written today. What should I write about? Any suggestions or requests?

Sometimes I come across something so beautiful and inspiring. Sometimes its very literal, and sometimes it’s more general. This time it was literal. I came across this picture today on insomnia15’s tumblr page.

I just thought it was so beautiful and had to share. I think I might have to recreate this look. I’ll definitely share when and if I do!
