One day young hippo had a wish,
Not to swim like a silly fish.
He wanted to learn how to fly,
And soar into the wild, blue sky.
His lifelong goal would be granted soon.
For hippo found a bright red balloon.
With the help of some helium and a string,
Hippo accomplished his flying dream.
So little hippos, what lesson has been taught?
Yes, it is important to tie a good knot...
But with some help from helium and string,
Hippos can accomplish magical things.
