The Hedgehog Song


You can bugger the bear, if you do it with care
in the winter, when he is asleep in his lair,
Though I would not advise it in spring or in fall--
But the hedgehog can never be buggered at all.

If you're feeling auite coarse, you can bugger the horse,
or the palfrey, the jennet, the stallion(with force),
You can bugger the donkey, the mare or the mule,
Though to bugger the pony is needlessly cruel.

You can bugger the ox(if you stand on a box)
And vulpologists say you can bugger the fox,
You can bugger the shrew, though it's awfully small--
But the hedgehog can never be buggered at all.

Herpetologists gasp you can bugger the asp.
Entomologists claim you can bugger the wasp.
If an insect's your thing, man, then just have a ball--
But the hedgehog can never be buggered at all.

And the elephant too, that you meet in the zoo,
Can be buggered if you are sure just what to do,
You will need a large matress upon which to fall--
But the hedgehog can never be buggered at all.

You can bugger the bees if you're down on your knees
You can bugger the termites with terminal ease
You can bugger the beetle, the l,adybird too,
There's no end to the buggering that you can do.

You can bugger the cat if it isn't too fat
You can bugger the rabbit you draw from your hat
You can bugger the shark that you've chased in your yawl--
But the hedgehog can never be buggered at all.

You can bugger the ermine and all other vermin
Like rats, mice, and roaches, if you're not discern'
You can bugger the dog, it will come when you call--
But the hedgehog can never be buggered at all.

Although Mr. Tiggy is not very big, he
avoids with great ease those who fancy his arse.
He just curls in a ball, shows his prickles and all--
And the would-be seducer leaves him in the grass.

If you're that kind of fool, and you have a long tool,
Do it with a giraffe, if you stand on a stool,
Catch a yeti, who lives on the slopes of Nepal--
But the hedgehog can never be buggered at all.

For the hedgehog escapes the posterior rapes
Performed upon others of different shapes,
Those who run, swim, or slither, they get it withal--
But the hedgehog cn never be buggered at all.

It is said, if you try, you can bugger the fly,
Or the swallow as it skims so skillfully by,
Use a noose or a net, or lime(if you've the gall)--
But the hedgehog can never be buggered at all.

You can bugger the cow(I will not tell you how),
Or the boar, or the piglet, the stoat or the sow,
You can bugger the ass as it stands in his stall--
But the hedgehog can never be buggered at all.

You can order or shoo'im, or run a knife through'im
The one thing you cannot do is stick it to'im,
If you try to seduce'im, you'll end in a fix,
His prickles defend him against rampant pricks.

You can bugger the ram, you can bugger the lamb,
You can bugger the ewe, though the weather's a sham,
You can bugger the tiger(it may caterwaul)
But the hedgehog can never be uggered at all.

You can bugger the seal, you can bugger the eel,
You can bugger the crab, though they say it can't feel,
You can bugger the bat as the night casts its pall
But the hedgehog can never be buggered at all.

You can bugger the sanke(hold it down with a rake)
Though to bugger the quetzal may be a mistake
You can bugger the billy, the nanny, the kid,
But to bugger the hedgehog just cannot be did.

You can bugger the slug, though it messes the rug
You can bugger the different species of bug,
Or do it with a snail, if you slow to a crawl,
But the hedgehog can never be buggered at all.

At the end of the day, when you've had your rough way
With all of these creatures, you'll just have to say,
"That damned Erinaceous has been my downfall--
For the hedgehog can never be buggered at all."

As alluded to in Terry Pratchett's WYRD SISTERS.
