Baturday News is a weekly blog written by Rachael, a 6th grade student and Save Lucy volunteer. Rachael’s interest in bats was sparked by the big browns bats that use the outside of her home for a winter roost. Her family has cheerfully hosted this wild colony for years.

 

Hi Everyone! Here is a nice and festive Batty Easter song. I hope you like it.

A photograph of an Easter basket with stuffed batsHere comes Peter Battytail
Flappin’ down the batty trail
Flippity flappin’, Easter’s on its way

Bringing’ every bat-girl and boy
Baskets full of Easter joy
Things to make your Easter bright and gay

He’s got mothy beans for Tommy
Colored wax worms for sister Sue
There’s an orchid for your mommy
And an Easter bonnet too

Oh! here comes Peter Battytail
Flappin’ down the batty trail
Flippity flappity, happy Easter Day

Here comes Peter Battytail
Flappin’ down the batty trail
Flippity flappin’, Easter’s on its way

Try to do the things you should
Maybe if you’re extra good
He’ll bring lots of Easter bugs your way

You’ll wake up on Easter mornin’
And you’ll know that he was there
When you find those chocolate beetles
That he’s hiding everywhere

Oh! here comes Peter Battytail
Flappin’ down the batty trail
Flippity flappity, happy Easter Day

Flippity flappity, happy Easter Day

My apologies to Steve Nelson and Jack Rollins who wrote the original song.
I hope everyone has a very Happy Easter!!!
