– The Hippopotamus Song –
Flanders and Swann

. . .G . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .Am . . . . . . B
A bold hippopotamus was standing one day
. . . . . . .G . . . . . . . Em7 . . . D7
On the banks of the cool Shalimar
. . . .G . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Am . . . . . B
He gazed at the bottom as he peacefully lay
. . . . . Em7 . . . . . C . . . . .D
By the light of the evening star
. Am . . . . . . E . . . . . . Am . . . . . . .E
Away on the hilltop sat combing her hair
 . . .Am . . . . .E . . . .Am
His fair hippopotami maid
. . . . C . . . . D . . . . . . C . . . . D
The hippopotamus was no ignoramus
. . . . C . . . . . . . . Em7 . . . . .D
And sang her this sweet serenade

Chorus:
G . . . . . . . . C . . . . D
Mud, mud, glorious mud
G . . . . . . . . Em7 . . . . .D
Nothing quite like it for cooling the blood
 . . .G . . . . . . . . . . . . C
So follow me follow, down to the hollow
. . . . Am . . . . . G . . . . . . C . . D . . . . G
And there let us wallow in glo . . . rious mud

The fair hippopotama he aimed to entice
From her seat on that hilltop above
As she hadn't got a ma to give her advice
Came tiptoeing down to her love
Like thunder the forest re-echoed the sound
Of the song that they sang as they met
His inamorata adjusted her garter
And lifted her voice in duet

Now more hippopotami began to convene
On the banks of that river so wide
I wonder now what am I to say of the scene
That ensued by the Shalimar side
They dived all at once with an ear-splitting splosh
Then rose to the surface again
A regular army of hippopotami
All singing this haunting refrain

(Extra verse:)
The amorous hippopotamus whose love song we know
Is now married and father of ten,
He murmurs, "God rot 'em!" as he watches them grow,
And he longs to be single again!
He'll gambol no more on the banks of the Nile,
Which Nasser is flooding next spring,
With hippopotamas in silken pyjamas
No more will he teach them to sing...
