Time for a sing-song... Flanders & Swann -- The Hippopotamus Song...

An unusual feature of their act was that both men remained seated for their shows:
Swann behind his piano and Flanders in a wheelchair, having contracted poliomyelitis
in 1943.

Enjoy!!!

Fun fact: Their producer was none other than George Martin, before his stint with the Beatles.
