There's a hippopotamus, a hippopotamus, a hippopotamus in my pool
A hippopotamus
A hippopotamus

How did it get there? How did it get there? How did it get there?
I don't know

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

How did it get there?
How did it get there?
I don't know

A hippie is driving, a hippie is driving, I throw him a towel

Someone wearing a slippery suit
Someone must've come over the lap
Throw in a hippo and then a giraffe

Excellent swimmer, excellent swimmer, looking much trimmer
Than I thought

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 prejudiced
Not that I'm prejudiced
Not that I'm prejudiced, no, not me
Not that I'm prejudiced
Not that I'm prejudiced
Not that I'm prejudiced
That's not me

Thrown in a hippo, a little Dutch art
An actor performing a Shakespearean part

Asian lady, isn't it grand?
Yes, yes
So grand
