Hippopotamus.

Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia isn't that hard to say actually, just sound it out.

So I was looking for a pronunciation for y'all and then I find this gem.

(sung to the tune of supercalcfragilisticexpialidocious)

Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia
Means that my verbosity might cause you melancholia
I'll attempt to keep to brevity that might console ya
Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia

(Speak an affirmative, if you say aye
speak an affirmative, if you say aye)

My tendency to vacillate when I was but a lad
Made my patriarch pontificate that I was bad
His punitative measures were so physically cruel
For my vocabulary had rebelled against his rule

Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia
Made my father metamorphose into a great ogre
He paddled on my derriere from May until October
Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia

(Lost effervescency, made rather shy
lost effervescency, made rather shy)

I flew from Great Britannia and I found Tajikistan
To cogitate and contemplate; accumulate a tan
The peoples there indigenous would listen to me talk
They'd stay there temporarily then have to take a walk

Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia
I diagnosed afflictions from New Zealand to Mongolia
You say "Salutations" and they just don't want to know ya
Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia

(Never belligerent, that I deny
never belligerent, that I deny)

So if a feline quadruped has grappled on your tongue
Be not apprehensive when you hear a word so long
Greet with jubilation every lengthy word you hear
For quantitatively rich words are nothing you should fear

Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia
Even when intoxicated makes one rather sober
Why trust the diminutive when it's so mediocre?
Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia!
