Twinkle Twinkle Little Bat...

Twinkle, twinkle, little bat!
How I wonder what you're at!
Up above the world you fly,
Like a teatray in the sky.
Twinkle, twinkle—

Last night the missus and I were out in the twilight with the dogs and a million bats (ha! eating all the mosquitos, take that!).
This is from 'Alice in Wonderland' and the Mad Hatter's tea party. I have been unable to find a video clip for it, but Sesame Street had a terrific version of the song sung by little bat puppets....

I only remember Sesame Street's "Batty Batty Bat!" song, which still makes me smile.

We need more bats here. The best part about camping near New Mexico's Carlsbad Caverns? NO MOSQUITOS!!!

"Alice" is one of my all time favorite books.
