I want a hippopotamus for Christmas...

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
Only a hippopotamus will do
Don't want a doll, no dinky Tinker Toy
I want a hippopotamus to play with and enjoy

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
I don't think Santa Claus will mind, do you?
He won't have to use our dirty chimney flue
Just bring him through the front door,
that's the easy thing to do

I can see me now on Christmas morning,
creeping down the stairs
Oh what joy and what surprise
when I open up my eyes
to see a hippo hero standing there

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
Only a hippopotamus will do
No crocodiles, no rhinoceroses
I only like hippopotamuses
And hippopotamuses like me too

Mom says the hippo would eat me up, but then
Teacher says a hippo is a vegeterian.
(Short Music Interlude)
There's lots of room for him in our two-car garage
I'd feed him there and wash him there and give him his massage

I can see me now on Christmas morning,
creeping down the stairs
Oh what joy and what surprise
when I open up my eyes
to see a hippo hero standing there

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
Only a hippopotamus will do
No crocodiles or rhinoceroseses
I only like hippopotamuseses
And hippopotamuses like me too!

IMAGINE...(John Lennon,1940-December 8,1980)

Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people living for today

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people living life in peace

You, you may say 
I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one
I hope some day you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people sharing all the world

You, you may say 
I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one
I hope some day you'll join us
And the world will live as one

Δεκεμβρης...(Παντελης Θαλασσινος)

Στολίζω δέντρο με τα χιόνια του Χριστού
τραπέζι στρώνω με τα δώρα του χειμώνα
εσύ το φως ενός ορίζοντα κλειστού
που το φορώ του ταξιδιού μου αρραβώνα.

Ανάβω φώτα και λαμπιόνια ζωηρά
και μες στη φλόγα της γιορτής κεράκι λιώνω
φωτογραφίζω αναμνήσεις στη σειρά
να σε θυμάμαι όσο λείπω ένα χρόνο

Παραμονή Πρωτοχρονιάς θα σε φιλήσω
και μια ευχή πάνω στα χείλη σου θ' αφήσω
καθώς αργά θα ξετυλίγεις τον καιρό σου
σαν παραμύθι να με βλέπεις στ' όνειρό σου...

Ζυμώνω δώδεκα Χριστόψωμα ζεστά
με της αγάπης τη μαγιά και άσπρο αλεύρι
να τα μοιράσεις σε παιδάκια γελαστά
να' χουν να λένε για τη δόξα του Δεκέμβρη

Παραμονή Πρωτοχρονιάς θα σε φιλήσω
και μια ευχή πάνω στα χείλη σου θ' αφήσω
καθώς αργά θα ξετυλίγεις τον καιρό σου
σαν παραμύθι να με βλέπεις στ' όνειρό σο

Take this waltz(Leonard Choen,1939-2016)

Now in Vienna there's ten pretty women
There's a shoulder where Death comes to cry
There's a lobby with nine hundred windows
There's a tree where the doves go to die
There's a piece that was torn from the morning
And it hangs in the Gallery of Frost
Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay
Take this waltz, take this waltz
Take this waltz with the clamp on its jaws
Oh I want you, I want you, I want you
On a chair with a dead magazine
In the cave at the tip of the lily
In some hallways where love's never been
On a bed where the moon has been sweating
In a cry filled with footsteps and sand
Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay
Take this waltz, take this waltz
Take its broken waist in your hand

This waltz, this waltz, this waltz, this waltz
With its very own breath of brandy and Death
Dragging its tail in the sea

There's a concert hall in Vienna
Where your mouth had a thousand reviews
There's a bar where the boys have stopped talking
They've been sentenced to death by the blues
Ah, but who is it climbs to your picture
With a garland of freshly cut tears?
Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay
Take this waltz, take this waltz
Take this waltz it's been dying for years

There's an attic where children are playing
Where I've got to lie down with you soon
In a dream of Hungarian lanterns
In the mist of some sweet afternoon
And I'll see what you've chained to your sorrow
All your sheep and your lilies of snow
Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay
Take this waltz, take this waltz
With its "I'll never forget you, you know!"

This waltz, this waltz, this waltz, this waltz ...

And I'll dance with you in Vienna
I'll be wearing a river's disguise
The hyacinth wild on my shoulder,
My mouth on the dew of your thighs
And I'll bury my soul in a scrapbook,
With the photographs there, and the moss
And I'll yield to the flood of your beauty
My cheap violin and my cross
And you'll carry me down on your dancing
To the pools that you lift on your wrist
Oh my love, Oh my love
Take this waltz, take this waltz
It's yours now. It's all that there is.

Νοεμβρης μηνας ταξιδευει...(Παντελης Θαλασσινος)

Νοέμβρης μήνας ταξιδεύει μ'ένα τρένο
Αθήνα-Λάρισα ωραία Θεσσαλία
Στην Κατερίνη ακούει τραγούδι αγαπημένο
με μια πληγή από παλιά μελαγχολία

Στη Σαλονίκη φθάνει απόγευμα στις έξι
μ'ένα καιρό που όλο σκέφτεται να βρέξει
Στη Σαλονίκη φθάνει απόγευμα στις έξι
μ'ένα καιρό που όλο σκέφτεται να βρέξει
Νοέμβρης μήνας...
Νοέμβρης μήνας...

Νοέμβρης μήνας με καράβι ταξιδεύει
Χανιά-Ηράκλειο και κόλπο Μιραμπέλου
του Μεθυστή τα πανηγύρια μνημονεύει
Αγίου Μηνά και Μιχαήλ του Αρχαγγέλου

Το Ρεθυμνιώτικο σκοπό παίζει στη λύρα
και λέει του έρωτα τα πάθη και τη μοίρα,
το Ρεθυμνιώτικο σκοπό παίζει στη λύρα
και λέει του έρωτα τα πάθη και τη μοίρα,
Νοέμβρης μήνας...
Νοέμβρης μήνας...
Νοέμβρης μήνας...
