Most annoying Christmas song ever

“I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas” sung by Gayla Peevey. Recorded in 1953. Lyrics and music by John Rox.

Most. Annoying. Christmas. Song. Ever.

Nobody wants a hippopotamus for Christmas. Or any other day of the year.

The end.

    “I Want A Hippopotamus For Christmas”? Never heard of it. Is it anything like “Running Grandma Over With A Reindeer”? My dear this is what Christ Mass is all about. Enjoy!

    I concur about this song. It’s as if they could not think of any other five-syllable words that might be something a person might want. I mean it doesn’t seem to have that same child-like joy singing, “I want a diagnostician for Christmas…” or perhaps, “I want a Yugoslavian for Christmas” (unless you’re a single gal in Sarajevo.) Hey, I just thought of something that might work! “I want a Snuffleupagus for Christmas.” Hey, who wouldn’t want a Snuffleupagus for Christmas, am I right Sesame Street fanatics?!?!?

    However, I have my least favorite Christmas song to contribute as well. Coming in as a close first runner-up (and will take over the crown if “I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas” is unable to complete its duties) is….. “Hey Santa” by Wilson Phillips. YouTube this song. IT IS INSUFFERABLE! But the music video is pretty funny!

    i want a hippopotamus for christmas.
    only a hippopotamus from you.
    dont want a dog.
    no tinky dink or dot.
    i want a hippopotamus to play with and to enjoy.
    i want a hippopotamus for christmas.
    i dont think sants clause will mind it to.
    he wont have to use a dirty chimney…………

    and it goes on
