lyrics

I woke to take a walk
The sun was still asleep
I wandered towards the bay
And slowly dragged my feetot

At once a felt a pulse
A groovy beat in five
I heard a joyful roar
And felt the funky jive of

Hi-po-pa-to-mus, Hi-po-pa-to-mus

Now any hippo knows
That dancing sooths the soul
In hours before the sun
The hippos have their fun

The day’s to hot to dance
The sun will scorch the skin
But when the dusk arrives
The thundering waltz begins with

Hi-po-pa-to-mus, Hi-po-pa-to-mus

You mustn’t get to near
You’re better to stay clear
A hippo dance is not
A human social spot


Kiboko kiboko kiboko kiboko
Hi-po-pa-to-mus, Hi-po-pa-to-mus
