From grandson, Joey: “HIPPOPOTUS, not POTUS. Brilliant, Mr. Allan Ishac! Here’s my version of the Hippopotamus song for you.”
I want the HIPPOPOTUS gone for Christmas
All the HIPPOPOTUS clan gone, too
No POTUS-FLOTUS cap, no ‘Vanka-Jared toy
The HIPPOPOTUS gone, something the whole world can enjoy

John Jefferson Rox wrote the original song. “I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas” lyrics © Kobalt Music Publishing Ltd.
