Baturday News is a weekly blog written by Rachael, a 7th grade student and Save Lucy volunteer. Rachael’s interest in bats was sparked by the big brown bats that used the outside of her former home for a winter roost. Her family cheerfully hosted this wild colony for years.

Hi Everyone! I thought it would be nice to teach you a festive and batty Christmas song. This is what the bats at Save Lucy have been squeaking all week! I think they are looking forward to getting mealworms for Christmas.

We think she
We think she’s singing!

Frosty the snowbat was a jolly happy soul,
With a little stick pipe and a whiskery nose
and two eyes made out of coal.
Frosty the snowbat is a fairy tale, they say,
He was made of snow but the bat pups
know how he came to life one day.

There must have been some mealworms in that
old silk hat they found.
For when they placed it on his head
he began to fly around.

O, Frosty the snowbat
was alive as he could be,
And the bat pups say he could squeak
and play just the same as you and me.

Flappetty flap flap,
flappety flap flap,
Look at Frosty go.
Flappetty flap flap,
flappety flap flap,
Over the caves of snow.

Frosty the snowbat knew
the sun was coming up that day,
So he said, “Let’s fly and
we’ll have some fun
now before I go away.”

Down to the village,
with a little twig in his hand,
Flying here and there all
around the square squeaking,
Catch me if you can.

He led them down the streets of town
right to the traffic bat.
And he only paused a moment when
he heard him squeak “Stop!”

For Frosty the snowbat
had to hurry on his way,
But he flapped goodbye saying,
“Don’t you cry,
I’ll be back again after day.”

Flappetty flap flap,
flappety flap flap,
Look at Frosty go.
Flappetty flap flap,
flappety flap flap,
Over the caves of snow.
