GUEST,Argenine Lyr/Chords Req: Elephant & Hippo Songs (81* d) Elephant & Hippo Songs 05 Sep 01

There are two elephant songs and one hippopotamus song I'm trying to find -- and there may be other good suggestions, too.

One song is by Baby Gramps of Seattle, called "Go Wash An Elephant (If You Wanna Do Something Big)."

A second is an old jazz song that goes, "Daddy, can I have dat big elephant over dere?"

The third is "I Want A Hippopotamus For Christmas."

Does someone have lyrics and/or chords for these?

How about others?

I already know Flanders and Swann's "Hippopotamus" song (in the DT, I think) -- except for the 4th verse, after the hippopotamus gets married (and divorced, I think).

There's also "When I See A Elephant Fly," from Disney's "Dumbo."

What about other pachyderm songs (rhinos included)?
