B-A-T
Song for Teaching the Characteristics of Bats
Foster Brown


This song is available on Foster Brown's Naturally: Children's Nature Songs

B-A-T, that spells bat
B-A-T, that spells bat
Much to learn about them, that’s a fact!
B-A-T, that spells bat

Bats are flying mammals, this you might know.
They sleep together while they hang from their toes.
There’s big ones, small ones, and in between.
Large as a fox, small as a bumblebee.

B-A-T, that spells bat
B-A-T, that spells bat
Much to learn about them, that’s a fact!
B-A-T, that spells bat

The bats around my house, they eats insects.
Twelve-hundred bugs an hour, more or less.
They hang from the rafters when the sun shines bright;
flit around my yard in the pale moonlight.

B-A-T, that spells bat
B-A-T, that spells bat
Much to learn about them, that’s a fact!
B-A-T, that spells bat

Way down south among the tropical trees,
Bats nibble on fruits and disperse the seeds
Bananas, cashews, mangos and dates,
all depend on the bats to pollinate.

Chorus

There’s one more thing I’d like to say:
Bats aren’t blind, well, they see okay.
They use echolocation to find their way,
using sound waves to catch their prey.

There’s Little Brown, Big Brown, Yellow and White,
Long-Nose, Leaf-Nose and the Hog-Nose type,
Silver-Haired, Hairy-Legged, Hoary and Red…
Don’t go away, there’s more to be said.

There’s Pallid, Pipestrel, Free-Tailed and Fringed,
Long-Eared, Big-Eared and our Evening friend,
Frog-Eating, Fish Eating, Spotted and Gray
Arizona, Mississippi, Indiana…let’s save.
