Lyrics

1 2 3 4 5 6

Numbers 1 to 10 Gus would love to teach,
while he’s having fun playing at the beach.
When you know your numbers they’re fun to mix but first let’s learn about number six.

What a sight to see,
six hippos rockin’ to the beat,
dancing the hippo hop,
watch those hippo feet!

Hip, hip, hippo hop!
Hip, hip, hippo hop!
What a sight to see,
hippos rockin’ to the beat.
Dancing the hippo hop,
watch those hippo feet!

Hip, hip, hippo hop!
Hip, hip, hippo hop!
Hip, hip, hippo hop!
Watch those hippo feet.
What a sight to see,
hippos rockin’ to the beat.

Dancing the hippo hop,
watch those hippo feet!
