Porcupine
Teaching the Characteristics of Porcupines
Jeff Wolin


This song is available on Jeff Wolin's In Your Backyard.

Introduction:
Porcupine, porcupine up in that tree
How is the porcupine different from me?

Porcupine’s a rodent, like beaver mice and rat
Porcupine has sharp teeth called incisors that’s a fact
Porcupine’s an herbivore it munches plants and bark
Porcupine’s nocturnal it comes out after dark

Chorus:
Porcupine, porcupine quills are so sharp
Porcupine, porcupine comes out after dark

Porcupines have pokey hairs up and down their back
They protect them from the predator that wants a rodent snack
They can’t shoot their quills like many people say
They just turn their back, wave their tail and hide their face

Chorus:
Porcupine, porcupine quills are so sharp
Porcupine, porcupine comes out after dark

I was walking in the forest just the other day
I heard a porcupine talking to himself, this is what he said,

He said, pokey, pokey, pokey, pokey pokey pokey pokey pokey pokey pokey
pokey porcupine
pokey, pokey, pokey, pokey pokey pokey pokey pokey pokey pokey
pokey porcupine

You try: pokey, pokey, pokey, pokey pokey pokey pokey pokey pokey pokey
pokey porcupine

One more time:
Pokey, pokey, pokey, pokey pokey pokey pokey pokey pokey pokey pokey porcupine OUCH!

Porcupine’s like the forest, they like the desert too
They live in many habitats maybe they live near you

Chorus:
Porcupine, porcupine quills are so sharp
Porcupine, porcupine comes out after dark
