Say Hello to my Hippo,
He’s as friendly as can be.
There really is no reason
To hide up in that tree.
He’s big and fat and funny,
And he’s got a lovely smile.
He only shops at thrift stores,
But he’s got a lot of style.
Don’t let his scrunched face fool you,
It’s only just pretend.
It’s not because he’s angry,
It’s ’cause he’s breaking wind.
On second thought, I’ll join you,
Up there in your tree,
‘Cause sometimes by my hippo,
It’s hard for me to breathe.
Yes, well there you are folks. This one’s a considered a classic around our camp. Coop’s been begging me to get it recorded and posted for a very long time. He’s working on an animation for it right now using the new Nintendo DSi Flipnote Studio. If you haven’t seen that little program yet you’ve got to check it out. Absolutely amazing. I’ll post a link here as soon as he’s ready. This song will be included on next CD but you’re gettin’ it here and now for free! Send your friends a link. Everyone loves a flatulent hippo!
In other news;
The Green Thing is coming along nicely. It really is turning into the epic we always wanted it to be. If you’re really wanting a sneak peak you can check out “Call Me They“. Kids Music That Rocks gave it this splendid little introduction: “If The Flaming Lips Made a Kids’ Album…”
The newest CD cover (for the collection coming out this year) is almost complete and we’ll announce the title and give you a sneak preview in the coming weeks.
And, we just can’t get enough of The Beatles RockBand around here. Landen and Caden came over last night and we rocked that thing for hours. The whole fam’s learning the words to every Beatles song. Just awesome.
