The Hippo

Don't ever bath with a hippo
He won't leave you room for a shrug
He'll keep all the bubbles up his end
While you get the end with the plug

To bath with a hippo's not clever
You need something more your own size
He'll panic and squash you whenever
He gets the shampoo in his eyes

An elephant's worse, I can tell you
The water all goes up his trunk
But don't ever bath with a hippo
And don't let him have the top bunk
