The Duhks - The Leather Winged Bat lyrics

"I" said the little brown and leather winged bat
"I'll tell you the reason that
The reason that I fly by night
Is because I've lost my heart's delight"

Hi-dee die-dee da-diddle o day
Hi-dee die-dee da-diddle o day
Hi-dee die-dee da-diddle o day
Hey hey da-diddlee o

"I" said the red bird sitting on a fence
"I once loved a handsome wench
She got saucy and from me fled
And ever since my head's been red"

Hi-dee die-dee da-diddle o day
Hi-dee die-dee da-diddle o day
Hi-dee die-dee da-diddle o day
Hey hey da-diddlee o

"I" said the blue bird as he flew
"I once loved a young gal too
She got saucy and wanted to go
So I got me a new string for my bow"

Hi-dee die-dee da-diddle o day
Hi-dee die-dee da-diddle o day
Hi-dee die-dee da-diddle o day
Hey hey da-diddlee o

"I" said the robin as he flew
"When I was a young man I chose two
If one didn't love me, the other one would
don't you think my notion's good"

"Hoot" said the owl with a head so white
"A lonesome day and a lonesome night
Then I hear some pretty gal say
She'd court all night and sleep all day"

"Oh No!" said the turtle dove
"That's no way to gain his love
If you wanna gain your heart's delight
Keep him awake both day and night"

Hi-dee die-dee da-diddle o day
Hi-dee die-dee da-diddle o day
Hi-dee die-dee da-diddle o day
Hey hey da-diddlee o

Hi-dee die-dee da-diddle o day
Hi-dee die-dee da-diddle o day
Hi-dee die-dee da-diddle o day
Hey hey da-diddlee o

Hi-dee die-dee da-diddle o day
Hi-dee die-dee da-diddle o day
Hi-dee die-dee da-diddle o day
Hey hey da-diddlee o

Hi-dee die-dee
Hi-dee die-dee
Hi-dee die-dee
Hi-dee die-dee
Hi-dee die-dee da-diddle o day
Hey hey da-diddlee o
