Hey Armadillo lyrics

Music by elton john
Lyrics by tim rice
From the soundtrack the road to el dorado

Hey armadillo what you doing in the garden
Slumbering and spherical, youre always hanging around
Leather on the outside but a delicate interior
Very like a lot of human beings I have found

Hey armadillo I cant tell which way youre facing
Maybe thats a good thing, maybe you dont even know
No ones gonna bother you if they cant find your front end
There again I guess you find your love life rather slow

In the armadillo circle
In that armour-plated set
The philosophy is simple
What you see aint what you get
In the armadillo culture
In that well-protected creed
A solid hide to hide in
Is the only thing you need
Hey armadillo

Hey armadillo what you doing in the desert
Is a life of burrowing the answer to it all
What I would give to leave my problems six feet underground
And always be the perfect shape to be, and have, a ball

In the armadillo circle
In that armour-plated set
The philosophy is simple
What you see aint what you get
In the armadillo culture
In that well-protected creed
A solid hide to hide in
Is the only thing you need
Hey armadillo
Hey armadillo
