I can remember loving this song, this whole tape actually, when I was a kid. I had a brown Fisher Price tapedeck that you could beat up and it would always still work. I’ve had this song in my head for a couple of days. Now I’m putting it here. My favourite line was the one about the dragon in the driveway…

Hippo in the Bathtub

Hey Daddy! There’s a dragon in the driveway
And momma there’s a grizzly on the lawn!
You better come, quick! ‘Cause there’s a hippo in the bathtub,
And he’s goin’ down the drain — oh no, he’s gone!

Well the minds of little children,
They go round and round and round.
And they’re hearing giant’s footsteps
When I never hear a sound.
I just hear…

Hey Daddy! There’s a dragon in the driveway
And momma there’s a grizzly on the lawn!
You better come, quick! ‘Cause there’s a hippo in the bathtub,
And he’s goin’ down the drain — oh no, he’s gone!
And he’s goin’ down the drain — oh no, he’s gone!
