Leatherwing Bat  Peter, Paul and Mary

[Am]"Hi," said the little [C]leatherwing bat,
"I'll [D]tell you the [Am]rea[D]son [C]that,
The reason that I [Am]fly [G]by night,
I[E7]s because I lost my [E]heart's [Am]delight."

[Am]Howdy dowdy [C]diddle um-day,
[D]Howdy dowdy [C]diddle [Am]um-day,
H[Am]owdy dowdy [C]diddle [D]um-d[G]ay,
[G]Hey li-[D]lee lee-[C]lye [Am]li-lo.

"Hi," said the blackbird, sitting on a chair,
"Once I courted a lady fair,
She proved fickle and turned her back,
And ever since then I've dressed in black."

(Repeat Chorus)

"Hi," said the woodpecker, sitting on a fence,
"Once I courted a handsome wench,
She got scared and from me fled,
And ever since then my head's been red."

(Repeat Chorus)

"Hi," said the little turtle dove,
"I'll tell you how to win her love,
Court her night and court her day,
Never give her time to say oh nay."

(Repeat Chorus)

"Hi," said the bluejay and away he flew,
"If I were a young man I'd have two,
If one were faithless and chanced to go,
I'd have the other stringed to my bow."

[Am]Howdy dowdy [C]diddle um-day,
[D]Howdy dowdy [C]diddle [Am]um-day,
H[Am]owdy dowdy [C]diddle [D]um-d[G]ay,
[G]Hey li-[D]lee lee-[C]lye li[G],Hey li-[D]lee lee-[C]lye [Asus4]li-lo.
