OPENER (MIDDLE BREAK)

 

CIRCLE LEFT

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas.

Only a hippopotamus will do.

(I don’t think Santa Claus will mind, do you?)

Allemande the corner girl.  Dosado your own.

Men Star by the left, one time around you go.

Turn your partner by the right hand  ‘round now.

Allemande the corner girl and promenade

Don’t want a doll, no dinky Tinker Toy,

I want a hippopotamus to play with and enjoy.

 

FIGURE  (Last line changed each figure*)

Heads (sides) Promenade half way you go now

Down the middle and then Star Thru, Pass Thru

Swing thru my friend, Spin the Top and then

The boys move up, a Right & Left thru,

Turn the girls and then

Square thru three hands around the ring now

Swing the corner girl and Promenade.*

*1. No crocodiles, no rhinoceroses

I only like hippopotamuses.

*2. He won’t have to use our dirty chimney flue

 Just bring him through the front door, that’s the easy…  (CIRCLE LEFT)          

*3. Mom says the hippo would eat me up, but then

Teacher says the hippo is a vegetarian

*4. There’s lots of room for him in our two-car garage.

I’d feed him there and wash him there and give him his massage

 

CLOSER

Four ladies chain across the ring you go now

Turn and chain the ladies back again

Allemande the corner girl.  Dosado your own.

Men Star by the left, one time around you go.

Turn your partner by the right hand  ‘round now.

Allemande the corner girl and promenade

No crocodiles, no rhinoceroses

I only like hippopotamuses.

 

TAG

And hippopotamuses like me, too!!
