Sammy J - Hedgehog


Hey the chords aren't over the lyrics properly but they ARE on the right lines, have fun with it

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
Jack was... a hedgehog
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."

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 
was a hedgehog
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..."
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! 

G		D/F#			  C/E
Jack went flying through the air
Like a big ball of hedgehog

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 
open window of a yellow taxi cab in Frankston.

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?
The driver did know he was there
And they charged Jack the fare
    F								  G
But Jack disagreed with the two dollar fifty flagfall
Hedgehog in a taxi, getting fiscal
Didn't like the driver, pulled a pistol
Out shot the driver, couldn't revive her
You all thought that she was a man but she was a woman, you 
are sexist

Hedgehog in a taxi, hedgehog on the run
There are twenty cops behind him but they know he's got a gun
So he's gotta keep on going, petrol flowing
    G								  F
But now he's been surrounded and he's slowing down
He's in an alleyway
The cops are are and they
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
Many of us are still heavily instructed by a dominant social paradigm that suggest 
taxi driving is not an occupation for 

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
Ow! Prickly.
