Hippos Go Berserker

Hippos Go Berserk

1 hippo, all alone
calls 2 hippos on the phone.

3 hippos at the door

Bring along another 4.

5 hippos come overdressed.

6 hippos show up with a guest.

7 hippos arrive in a sack.
8 hippos sneak in the back.

Photobucket

9 hippos come to work.
All the hippos go berserk!

Photobucket

All through the hippo night, hippos play with great delight.
But at the hippo break of day, the hippos all must go away.

Photobucket

9 hippos and a beast join
8 hippos riding east, while
7 hippos moving west leave

Photobucket

6 hippos quite distressed,

and 5 hippos then set forth
with 4 hippos headed north.
3 hippos say ‘Good day.’
The last 2 hippos go their way.

1 hippo, alone once more,
Misses the other 44.
