Henry Hippopotamus

Henry HippopotamusHenry is an awful boss,
‘Cos he’s a hippopotamus.
Just because he is so big,
He really is a frightful pig.

Huge and squat, he weighs four tons,
Eats a lorry load of buns.
Though you’ll think that I’m wrong,
His tummy is eleven feet long!

He’s really very, very large,
And looks a little like a barge.
He likes the weather nice and hot,
In fact he likes it quite a lot.

He can even tip a boat,
Upside-down and make it float,
So I wouldn’t make him cross-
No, not Henry Hippopotamus!
