The Alien and the Bitty Bat

As inspired by 'The Owl and the Pussycat' by Edward Lear.

The Alien and the Bitty Bat went to sea

In a beautiful purple-sheen boat

They took some tea

And plenty of Greeh

All wrapped in a wolf-skin coat.

The Alien looked up to the stars above

And sang as he played his violin

'Oh Batty, oh Batty, oh Batty my friend

What a lovely deity you are

you are

you are

What a lovely deity you are!'

Batty said to the Alien, 'You remind me of Deucalion.

How charmingly sweet you play

But the hour is nigh

When the Greeh runs dry

So here we cannot stay.'

They sailed without barf for a hour and a half

To the land where the Greeh tree grows

And there in a wood a great Greeh bush stood

With bottles of Greeh in the hedgerows



With bottles of Greeh in the hedgerows.

'Dear bush, are you willing to sell for one shilling

your Greeh?' Said the bush, 'I will.'

So they took it away and were drunk the next day

By the house of the synthetic squirrel who lives on the hill

They dined on Brie, drank plenty of Greeh

With a hobo by the name of Bill.

And hand in hand by the sound of the band

They danced the whole night through

night through

night through

They danced the whole night through.
