Sammy J - Hedgehog http://www.sammy-j.com/ Hey the chords aren't over the lyrics properly but they ARE on the right lines, have fun with it email@example.com Intro: D,C as needed Verse 1 D C Jill was a girl, Jack was a guy D C One day they caught each other's eye D C D C And they went steady for two years D C D They'd spend their summers by the sea C D And they were happy and carefree C D C And for the future had no fears Pre-chorus 1 D/A A/C# G/D But Jack had a little secret B C He'd been keeping to himself very deep inside his soul D/A A/C# G/D He was ashamed, he was embarrassed B C Didn't want to jeopardise the loved they shared, oh not at all Chorus 1 |G\\Bm7\\|C\\\\| Jack was... a hedgehog |G\\Bm7\\|C\\\\|C\\C6\\|C\\C6| Nobody knew G D/F# He was a filthy little creature A/C# D But with one redeeming feature C D G He was quite good at impersonating a human Verse 2 D C D Well, Jack decided to tell Jill C D But he did not know how she'd feel C D C D So he made a hedgehog slice C D She said, "Jack, thank you for the food C D And I don't want to sound too rude, C D C I don't think hedgehogs are nice." Pre-Chorus: D/A A/C# D Then Jack was gutted and a tear rolled down his cheek Csus2 D And Jill said, "Jack, I was joking. I love this chocolate treat. Bm C It's just the animal hedgehogs that I despise." C C6(repeat for this line) And it was quite sad because she still had no idea that Jack |G\\Bm7\\|C\\\\| was a hedgehog |G\\Bm7\\|C\\\\|C\\C6\\|C\\C6| Yes, she had no idea Post Chorus: G D/F# But he couldn't stand the shame A/C# D And he had to clear his name C D G So he organised to meet Jill down on Southbank Am7 C D And he said, "Jill, I wanna tell you..." N.C She said, "Shh, I wanna smell you." C D Em He said, "Not the best idea." C D Em And he said, "Jill, I am a hedgehog." C D Em And she said, "Haha, silly. Well, give me a hedge-hug." C D Em And they held each other near (Spoken Bridge All throughout in 8ves |C\\D\\|Em\\\\|) But as they were hugging each other, Jill cut her hand up on one of the spikes on his back. And she said, "Jack, what the fuck is this? You have spikes on your back! And he tore away his trench coat, and he pulled off his little mask and his snout popped out and she said, "Are you- you actually are a hedgehog!" "Yes, I was trying to tell you, babe. I've been trying to tell you for a week." "Four years, Jack, you've been keeping this from me! Four years, you little crazy fuck! What were you doing? What were you thinking!" And she picked Jack G D/F# C/E up, and she kicked him high into the air! (Sung) G D/F# C/E Jack went flying through the air D/F# Like a big ball of hedgehog D/F# And all the while, he was singing: G D/F# "Goodbye my lover, goodbye my friend C/E D/F# You have been the one..." (Spoken repeat |G\\\\|D/F#\\\\|C/E\\\\|D/F#\\\\|) And after he'd done singing James Blunt's entire extended repertoire, two albums to date, he came to rest through the G open window of a yellow taxi cab in Frankston. (Sung) Am G Hedgehog in a taxi, will he pay the fare? Am G Hedgehog in a taxi, does the driver even know that he's there? F The driver did know he was there G And they charged Jack the fare F G But Jack disagreed with the two dollar fifty flagfall Am Hedgehog in a taxi, getting fiscal G Didn't like the driver, pulled a pistol Am Out shot the driver, couldn't revive her G You all thought that she was a man but she was a woman, you |Am\\\\|G\\\\| are sexist Am Hedgehog in a taxi, hedgehog on the run G There are twenty cops behind him but they know he's got a gun Am So he's gotta keep on going, petrol flowing G F But now he's been surrounded and he's slowing down G He's in an alleyway F The cops are are and they G Are just about to shoot (Spoken - No Chords here apart from when appropriate play the chorus - |G\\Bm7\\|C\(rest for 3)|) And then Jill came running in through the alleyway. She said, "Stop! Don't shoot the little prick! Can't you see he's not man! He's just a hedgehog!" But as she was playing the grand piano she'd wheeled into the alleyway for dramatic effect, the policemen riddled Jack's little body with bullets and then started playing soccer with his corpse. Final scores were Victoria Police 3, Jack's corpse nil. Some say it was an unfair match. And all the while, Jill kept on playing. Interlude: Am,G,F,G Outro (Sung) Am G In conclusion, it has been seen F G Don't pretend to be a human Am G In conclusion, it has been seen F G Some people who say they are a human might not actually be a human Am G In conclusion, it has been seen F Many of us are still heavily instructed by a dominant social paradigm that suggest taxi driving is not an occupation for G females Coda: F G (gliss up) There might be a hedgehog in this room F G (gliss up) There might be a hedgehog in this room F G (gliss up) There might be a hedgehog in this room (Am) Ow! Prickly.
