Subject: Source Req: Erinaco [Hedgehog]
From: Haruo

Anybody know the source (nationality? original language/text? author? English title/text?) of the presumably European-folk song I just posted on my website at http://www.geocities.com/lilandr/kantoj/diversaj/Erinaco1.htm (it's got the melody in the background if that helps, or you can get the MIDI by clicking on the link below the text). The story line runs thusly:

  1. Our grandfather once found a hedgehog in a garden
    And he hid it under a towel on the bench by the hearth.
    (Ref.)
    Yes, yes, it's true. Yes, yes, it's true. If you don't believe it, come see for yourself.
  2. Not paying attention, our aunt sat down on top of the hedgehog;
    Like a dragoon from the saddle she jumped off like a shot!
  3. The village is awash in mocking wonder at the level of sense
    Demonstrated by our aunt who tried to ride a hedgehog.
Of course in Esperanto it has better rhyme and scansion. But I am interested in any light anybody can shed on its provenance.

Haruo, you were around last year, have you left us?

This song can be scared up at a Wiki site, although I had to use Google Translate to see what I was looking at.

The Wiki site says the folksong tune comes from the Czech Republic. The music is given, and the melody is remarkably simple, a child could easily sing it. But I don't recognize the tune at sight. Perhaps another Mudcatter would know it from somewhere.

"Josef Cink" is also cited, but I don't know if he is accountable for words, translation, or what.

Herewith, an attempt to link to the MIDI for this tune.
