Track Name: For The Love of Hippos
Have you ever seen a Hippo trying to skate?
He steps on the board and the thing just breaks.
Hippopotamus’s just can't co-ordinate,
So for sure there's no way that they can skate.
Hippos at the X-Games wouldn't rate!

Hippos, Hippos, Hippos can't skate.
Hippos, Hippos, Hippos can't skate.
Hippos, Hippos, Hippos can't skate.
Hippos just can't skate.

I know a herd of Hippopotami,
But their actually really a bunch of guys.
There's an old one, a new one and one called Jak,
They are nerds as a matter of fact.
Hippos of Doom are friends mine!

Hippos, Hippos, Hippos of Doom.
Hippos, Hippos, Hippos of Doom.
Hippos, Hippos, Hippos of Doom.
Hippos, Hippos, Hippos of Doom.

Hippos can run at twenty miles an hour,
So even though they can't skate,
You better get out of their way!
There jaws are full of twenty inch teeth,
So please steer clear or you'll come to grief!

Hippos, Hippos, Hippos can't skate.
Hippos, Hippos, Hippos of Doom.
This song is mostly just a joke,
Hippo high five,
Old-timers forever.
Hippos, Hippos, Hippos of Doom, Oh yea!
