On this page you see a little girl giggling a hippopotamus.
I wonder why?
On this page you see a little girl giggling at hippopotamus.
I wonder why?
Turn the page, thank you.
On this page you see a little girl giggling at a hippopotamus.
I wonder why?

Don't, don't, don't, don't, don't say things that hurt others, said pussycat.
Pussycat, pussycat, pussycat, pussycat
Like, isn't that hippo fat?
Fat, fat, fat, fat, fat, fat, fat, fat, fat, fat
Or shout hyena I hate you

Hate you, hate you, you hate you, hate you hate
I found a sound in the house one day, if you know who lost it, I'll give
It away! Away!
This sound I found said, this sound belongs to a hot ray, ray, hot, pot, pot.
The magic medicine worked!

    General CommentI don't think this song means anything in particular. I read on one of the many Incubus sites online that DJ Lyfe just liked scratching kiddy records on the songs.

    General CommentYeah i agree Incubus is my favorite band but this song is just plain lame, also like Nickel was saying there is this great setup of songs you got vitamin,new skin, idiot box (one if their best songs eve if you ask me), glass(meh dont really like it) then this lame song, then onto some more excellant songs certain shade of green and favorite things (another best one).

    General Commenti disagree, i think this a great job by incubus to put forth their love for other music styles/genres (i believe this is an attempt at mellow drum n bass)

    and it's a great album, and this song fits perfectly before certain shade of green, because the first two times i listened to the album, i wasn't expecting certain shade of green to come after this, it really just came out of nowhere, incubus love to do that... they do that with a lot of their songs, from soft to hard.... within the song itself, big thumbs up for this whole album, ill never get sick of listening to science
