Hedgehog Song

Hedgehog Song
(Mike Heron)

I'm not the kind to complain
That I never had a girl to love
Many fine girls I tried hard to know
But I think I've never tried enough

Every day when the sun goes down
And the evening is so very still
Many fine girl I've held in my arms
And I hope there's many more that I will

But just when everything is going fine
And absolutely nothing is wrong
There's this funny little hedgehog
Who's always around, and he starts up to sing me this song

     Oh you know all the words, and you sung all the notes
     But you never quite learned the song, she sung
     I can tell by the sadness in your eyes
     That you never quite learned the song

One day when the moon was full
I thought I might settle down
Found myself a pretty little girl
And stopped all my running around

But just when the preacher come along
And he's just going to pop on the ring
The funny little hedgehog comes running down the aisle
And I don't have to tell you what he did sing


So now I'll be looking all my days
And it isn't just me I've gotta please
There's this funny little hedgehog
Who's always around
And the only words he ever sings to me are these
