If you want to be hip
Like a hippopotamus
Then you better learn how to dance!

For we hippos bounce
Off the river floor
We never did like to swim
Oh, what a bore!

So if you take a dip
Like a hippopotamus
You have to learn to jump up off the floor
And then take a breath
And sink back down again
And do it again once more!

Why would one swim
If one knew the rhythm
Of hippos across a floor
A dip is hip with the hippo skip
It’s the hippest way to the shore!
