When I was younger I did dancing and we had to do a song and dance at the end. This was once of the songs that we had to sing and it always bothered me because the song never ends up telling you how to spell the whole word! But it is a great song. Here are the lyrics: I can spell hat, h-a-t I can spell cat, c-a-t I can spell mat, m-a-t But I can’t spell hippopotamus I can spell dog, d-o-g I can spell log, l-o-g I can spell hog, h-o-g But I can’t spell hippopotamus Bridge: H-i-p-p-o I know, and then comes p-o-t But that’s as far as I can go and that’s what bothers me, Gee! Back to start:

If your referring to the large animal with the one large horn on its nose and another on its head, which likes to wallow in water, and is quite the swimmer, then yes, everyone else has it right. However, a Hippodrome is a very large stadium.
