[Intro] : E  A  (x2)

[Verse 1] :
B             A                                           E
  I'm not the kind to complain that I never had a girl to love.
B                  A                                              E
  Many fine girl I tried hard to know, but I think I never tried enough.
B             A                                              E
  Sitting one day by myself, and I'm thinking,"What could be wrong?"
          E/G#          B7sus4        E/G#          B7sus4
When this funny little Hedgehog comes running up to me,
       E/G#         B7sus4        E
and it starts up to sing me this song.

[Chorus] :
E        B                           A                                                   
Oh, you know all the words, and you sung all the notes, but you never quite learned the song, she sung
B                   A                                                      E
  I can tell by the sadness in your eyes, that you never quite learned the song.

[Verse 2] :
B                    A                                       E
  Every day when the sun go down, and the evening is so very still,
B                       A                                                    E
  Many a fine girl I've held in my arms, and I hope there's many more that I will,
B                    A                                              E
  But just when everything is going fine, and absolutely nothing is wrong,
     E/G#         B7sus4     E/G#    B7sus4
This funny little Hedgehog's always around
          E/G#             B7sus4       E
And every time he wants to sing me this song.

[Chorus] :
E        B                           A                                                   
Oh, you know all the words, and you sung all the notes, but you never quite learned the song, she sung
B                   A                                                      E
  I can tell by the sadness in your eyes, that you never quite learned the song.

B                  A                                      E
  One day when the moon was full I thought I might settle down,
B                A                                                 E
  Found myself a pretty little girl, and I stopped all my running around;
B                   A                                                   E
  But just when the preacher come along, and he's just gonna pop on the ring,
      E/G#        B7sus4         E/G#             B7sus4
This funny little Hedgehog comes running down the aisle,
      E/G#          B7sus4               E
And I don't have to tell you what he did sing.

[Chorus] :
E        B                           A                                                   
Oh, you know all the words, and you sung all the notes, but you never quite learned the song, she sung
B                   A                                                      E

B             A                                            E
  I'm not the kind to complain, that I never had a girl to love;
B                      A                                              E

  But now I'll be looking all my days, and it isn't just me I got to please,
             E/G#          B7sus4         E/G#   B7sus4
There's this funny little Hedgehog Who's always around,
        E/G#          B7sus4               E
And the only words he ever sings to me are these.

E        B                           A
