"Porcupine People"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Porcupine people always seem to know when to stick around
Porcupine people don't talk, they just bristle
and they stand their ground
Porcupine people don't lie when they tell ya
They've been stuck like you
Porcupine people don't mind if you stand back
A pace or two

If you get lonely, all you really need
Is that porcupine love
Porcupine people all know there is shelter
In the trees above
Porcupine people don't stick it to others,
That would not be kind
Porcupine people all know how their quills
Can be so unkind

porcupine lovers don't lie when they tell ya
They've been stuck like you
Porcupine lovers don't mind if you stand back
a pace or two

Porcupine people always seem to know why you want to run
Real pointed critters who give you the jitters
Don't strike you as fun
Take em or leave em
But try not to grieve em
Don't stare em down too long
Porcupine people have long spiny points
And they pass them on

Porcupine people have long spiny points
And they pass them on....

I almost thought it would be a parody of the Frank Zappa song, "Pajama People"! Good job, Royce.
