about

This ditty can help comfort the little ones spooked by being outdoors at night.

lyrics

(Chorus) Bats eat bugs, they don’t eat people. Bats eat bugs, they don’t fly in your hair
Bats eat bugs, they eat insects for dinner. That’s why they’re flying up there.
Coyotes eat rabbits, they don’t eat people.
Coyotes eat rabbits, ‘cuz you’re too big to bite
Coyotes eat rabbits, they eat rabbits for dinner.
That’s why they’re out in the night.

Snakes eat mice, they don’t eat people.
Snakes eat mice, that’s why they’re on the ground
Snakes eat mice, ‘cuz we’re too big to swallow.
So they don’t want you hanging around.

Bears eat berries, they don’t eat people.
Bears eat berries, they don’t eat you or me
Bears eat berries, and they’ll steal your dinner,
so you better hang it high in a tree.

Nothing out there wants to eat you.
Nothing out there wants to make you its meal
Nothing out there eats people for dinner
‘cuz they know how sick they would feel
