Ives, Burl - Leather-Winged Bat Lyrics




"Hi," said the little brown leather winged bat
"I'll tell you the reason that
The reason that I fly in the night is
Because I lost my heart's delight"

How-dee dow-dee diddle o day
How-dee dow-dee diddle o day
How-dee dow-dee diddle o day
How-dow dee-di die do-do

"Hi," said the woodpecker, sittin' on a fence
"Once I courted the handsome finch
She got sulky and from me fled
Ever since then my head's been red"

How-dee dow-dee diddle o day
How-dee dow-dee diddle o day
How-dee dow-dee diddle o day
How-dow dee-di die do-do

"Hi" said the bluebird as she flew
If I were a young man I'd have to
One got saucy and wanted to go
I'd have a new string for my bow

How-dee dow-dee diddle o day
How-dee dow-dee diddle o day
How-dee dow-dee diddle o day
How-dow dee-di die do-do
