I'm A Bat 

Helvetica Light is an easy-to-read font, with tall and narrow letters, that works well on almost every site.

(a song)


I am not a pervert, heaven knows,

I just like to hang in mid-air by my toes.

I get a healthy thrill

Hanging from the window-sill

Or on the washing line among the clothes.


I’m a bat, yes I am, I’m a bat

That is why I like to hang around the town.

I love to see the people stare

To see me hanging in the air

Dangling from a gutter, upside down.


I hang from lamp-posts and from chimneys and from trees.

I stay for hours swaying gently in the breeze.

I hang on in snow and sleet

Until the frost attacks my feet

And the hail gets up my nose and makes me sneeze.

Repeat chorus
