Music Friday #22: Choose Your Own Christmas Adventure

Happy Holidays everyone 😀

So I tried to find a song that would serve as a prompt, inspiration, holiday-ish and a little unexpected (‘cuz that’s the way I roll). I failed miserably lol. Take note: I hate traditional-style Christmas music so I couldn’t give you just *any* prompt. As my gift to you, feel free to peruse through four songs that had that special earworm effect.

Also, I would like feedback about the prompt music, songs you would like to hear, creative ideas for this feature or how your holidays are going. My ears are open and taking requests 😛

I will give you “I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas” to consider and list the other three. I can’t wait to read your creations!

The List:

 

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
Only a hippopotamus will do
I don’t want a doll, no dinky Tinkertoy
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 my hippo hero standing there

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
Only a hippopotamus will do
No crocodiles, or rhinoceroses
I only like hippopotamuses
And hippopotamuses like me too

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
a hippopotamus is all I want
Mom says the hippo would eat me up
But then teacher says a hippo is a vegetarian

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
The kind I saw this summer at the zoo
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 my hippo hero standing there

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
Only a hippopotamus will do
No crocodiles, or rhinoceroseses
I only like hippopotamuses
And hippopotamuses like me too
