In the kingdom of bats, the rules are upside down
Daytime is for sleeping, nights for visiting town

When the sun goes down, and darkness comes in striding
Little Bat Princess in royal cloak, comes out of hiding

The world is wrapped in sleep, and no one can do her harm
She plays with nocturnal friends, and spreads her batty charm

But if the moon gets naughty, and tries to shine too bright
Bat Princess spreads out her cloak, and covers up the light
