Hipposong by Al Stewart


I was surrounded by a large hippopotamus
And nine of it's friends who declared
Quite a lot of us
Are feelingrather blue
And we don't know what to do
I turned away but the large hippopotamus
Said that his pit of despair appeared bottomless
Yest hippopotami are
Not supposed to cry
I said "My, my, other people's problems
Do get tedious by and bye
My, my you can never solve them
No matter how hard you try."
This brought a tear from the large hippopotamus
Who said in a voice that was growing monotonous
You cannot get the sense
Of how it feels to be immense
The sleek and the sliim make fun
Of a lot of us
And creatures who fly
Through the air
Sit on top of us
ANd even in the pool
We are faced with ridicule
I said "My, my other people's problems
Do get tedious by and by
My, my you can never solve them
No matter how hard you try."
I came back as a large hippopotamus
