Austin Bats – Austin, TX


May 24, 2009 – Austin Bats

Austin Bats map

One of the main attractions we wanted to experience in Austin – and it was free and fantastic! We first heard about the bats from Ralls and couldn’t wait to see it in person.  Between 750,000 and 1.5 million bats reside underneath the bridge each summer.  Since Austin’s population is about 750,000, there are more bats than people in Austin during the summer.

While waiting for the bats to emerge, a fire juggler came and entertained us for about an hour and that was also such a highlight!


“Hi, I forgot your name
Whatever
My point is
Hi, your head’s on fire

Oh damn, you must’ve got one of them
Combustible heads
I read an article all about them

You’re on fire
You’re on fire
I won’t lie
You’re on fire

Combustible head (I won’t lie)
Combustible head (I won’t lie)
Combustible head (I won’t lie)
Combustible head 

Hey, how’s it going
Is that your car they’re towing?
I’m pretty sure that’s your car
No, you can’t park there
Whoa, your head’s on fire

Oh damn, you must’ve got one of them
Combustible heads
I read an article all about them

You’re on fire
You’re on fire
I won’t lie
You’re on fire

Combustible head (I won’t lie)
Combustible head (I won’t lie)
Combustible head (I won’t lie)
Combustible head

The lights are low
The music is extremely loud 
You’re hard to get to know
But you’re easy to spot in a crowd

As I’m sure you’re aware
You’ve got one of those rare
Combustible heads
I read an article all about them

You’re on fire
You’re on fire 
I won’t lie 
You’re on fire “
