Christmas Songs!

Right after Halloween we've already started hearing Christmas Carols over the airwaves. Middle of November our State has already dedicated a FM station that play Christmas songs only. Earlier tonight coming home from our usual dinner date my husband said he never thought that Christmas Songs could sustain a station for the whole day with little repeats of the songs. I have to agree I find it amusing that day in and day out the station carries all Christmas songs non-stop.

My husband's all time favorites are Christmas Shoe, I Want A Hippopotamus for Christmas and Mary did you Know in that order. Have to agree with him he was the one who introduced me to these songs and I immediately fell in love with them. The first time I heard the song Christmas Shoes it brought me to tears it was soo sad while the song I Want A Hippopotamus for Christmas is soooo cute and funny. The kind of song that will make you feel the happiness that goes with the season. And the song Mary did you know said it all, that the essence of Christmas is the birth of our Lord Jesus.

Please find time to listen to the songs. Have a blessed Christmas, Jesus is so
sweet!

Also, some friends requested for the lyrics of the song "I Want A Hippopotamus for Christmas" so here it is...

Words and Music by John Rox
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 vegeterian.
(Short Music Interlude)
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!
