I have this song stuck in my head and it won't go away

I blame it on my daughter-in-law because last night she posted a video on FB of my grandson singing this song. I woke up this morning with this song in my head and it won't go away no matter what other song that I listen to. He did really well singing. He had no problem wrapping his tongue around "hippopotamuses" Do you have a song struck in your head today?
JJBWorks presents Gayla Peevey at age 10 in 1953 and again at age 73 in 2016 singing the Christmas Hippo song.

I learned the term in a book by neurologist Daniel Levitin, but apparently it's been around for a long time.

@Happy2BeMe You'll find it here.
I haven't done a countdown in awhile. I haven't had any thoughts of what to do. That changed the other day when I was driving. I was listening to Christmas...

I do....for some reason, Dan Fogelberg's "Someone's Been Telling You Stories." At least it's a really good song.
Dan Fogelberg - Someone's Been Telling You Stories - (Souvenirs, 1974) With Joe Walsh Producing the LP and Just Ripping on this Tune - Dan Fogelberg - organ,...

@TheHorse -- I consider it Fogelberg's masterpiece. Doesn't sound like Joe Walsh would have produced it, but he didd!

No particular song is stuck in my head this morning....I seem to be singing random songs as I finally psyched myself up to actually pull out the garland and decorate the windows. One is done...one window and the fireplace mantle to go. I can do this. Yesterday I had Hallelujah stuck in my head...it was playing when I walked into a store.

@Happy2BeMe not yet...but by noon I should have it done and all the boxes and mess put away. I may leave the decorations up a week or so longer this year (my ambition may make that unlikely) because when I take them down they will be culled so I don't need to move everything.
