Verse 1
There's a hippopotamus, there's a hippopotamus, there's a hippopotamus in my pool
There's a hippopotamus, there's a hippopotamus, there's a hippopotamus in my pool
How did it get there? How did it get there? How did it get there?
I don't know
How did it get there? How did it get there? How did it get there?
I don't know
Verse 2
There's a book by anonymous, a book by anonymous, a book by anonymous in my pool
There's a book by anonymous, a book by anonymous, and a hippopotamus in my pool
No I've not read it, no I've not read it, when it dries out
I'll have a go
How did it get there? How did it get there? How did it get there?
I don't know
Verse 3
Someone must've been fooling around
Someone must've been acting dumbfound
Someone must've been taking the piss
Taking the piss and acting like this
Verse 4
There's a painting by Hieronymus, Bosch by Hieronymus, Bosch by Hieronymus in my pool
There's a painting by Hieronymus, Bosch by Hieronymus, Bosch by Hieronymus in my pool
How did it get there? How did it get there? How did it get there?
Sure beats me
Must be a late work, must be a late work, one of his late works
Obviously!
Verse 5
There's a Volkswagen microbus, a Volkswagen microbus, a Volkswagen microbus in my pool
A '58 microbus, a '58 microbus, a '58 microbus in my pool
A hippie is driving, a hippie is driving, a trippy old hippie
Poor, poor guy
A hippie is driving, a hippie is driving, I throw him a towel
Here, go get dry
Verse 6
Someone must've been acting real cute
Someone wearing a slippery suit
Someone must've come over the lap
Throw in a hippo and then a giraffe
Verse 7
There is Titus Andronicus, Titus Andronicus, Titus Andronicus in my pool
There is Titus Andronicus, Titus Andronicus wearing a snorkel in my pool
Now he's gone under, now he's gone under, now he's gone under
Worry not
Excellent swimmer, excellent swimmer, looking much trimmer
Than I thought
Verse 8
There's a woman with an abacus, a woman with an abacus, a woman with an abacus, she looks Chinese
There's a woman with an abacus, a woman with an abacus, a woman with an abacus, she looks Chinese
Not that I'm prejudice, not that I'm prejudice, not that I'm prejudice
No, not me
Not that I'm prejudice, not that I'm prejudice, not that I'm prejudice
That's not me
Verse 9
Rolling a hippo, a little got short
And after performing a Shakespearean part
Summary book and Germanic them
Asian lady, isn't it grand?
Yes, yes
So grand
