"Simon the Hedgehog" is a lovely Christmas tune about a charming young hedgehog called Simon, who misses out on all the fun and festivities of the season, due to the habit of small British mammals, over the winter period, to hibernate. However, upon waking in the Springtime, he finds a surprise greets him after his long winter nap. See for the video!



At Christmas time, Simon never celebrates
He never has a turkey or a sprout on his plates
To him the tales of Baby Jesus no one relates
Cos Simon is a hedgehog and he hibernates

Oh Simon… Oh Simon…
Haven’t you ever wondered why, man…?
The trees have no leaves; there’s a chill on the breeze;
And the sun is getting lower in the sky, man?

Winter is coming; the snow’s on its way
And Santa’s getting ready for his busy day
The children are all practicing their Christmas songs
But don’t you worry you can sleep all winter long

(Organ Instrumental)

When the hedgehogs wake up in the Spring
They’ll have missed all the Christmas bells ring
But they’ll feel it on their whiskers
Christmas always lingers on…

When Simon wakes up this Springtime he’ll rub his eyes
He’ll check his letterbox and find a big surprise
I posted lots of presents wrapped in Christmas wrap
So happy Christmas, hope that you enjoyed your nap!

Oh Simon… Oh Simon…
Hope that you like your socks and you tie, man
Some cufflinks for you, and a chocolate orange too
And a very merry Christmas to you, Simon!

Simon… Oh Simon…
Have a glass of Sherry and a minced pie, man
Simon… Oh Simon…
And a very merry Christmas to you, Simon!
