“Auld Bat Sign”. Your New Year’s Day special, from May The Verse Be With You. We did promise festive specials! Last week we had the Twelve Days of MCU Christmas. And earlier in December we had Cold as the Worf Pole. A tribute to our favourite Klingon, Worf (Michael Dorn). This week, for New Year’s Day, it’s our take on classic Auld Lang Syne. Ours features the one and only Bat Man!

 

Auld Bat Sign

I

Should Gotham’s bad guys be forgot,

not made to toe-the-line,

should Gotham’s bad guys be forgot,

but they won’t we’ve the Bat Sign!

 

We’ve the bat Sign, thank God

we’ve the Bat Sign,

they’ll get captured by Bat Man yet,

thank God we’ve the Bat Sign!

 

II

And surely he’ll catch The Joker

and surely catch that swine;

who’ll get captured by Bat Man yet,

thanks to the Bat Sign!

 

We’ve the bat Sign, thank God

we’ve the Bat Sign,

they’ll get captured by Bat Man yet,

thank God we’ve the Bat Sign!

 

III

Our hero’s run around the streets

and kept crime numbers fine;

the Bat-mobile’s done its job,

so’s the good Auld Bat Sign!

 

We’ve the bat Sign, thank God

we’ve the Bat Sign,

they’ll get captured by Bat Man yet,

thank God we’ve the Bat Sign!

So, whilst busy smelling, losing a wheel on the Bat-mobile, and Robin’s annual egg-laying, the original Caped Crusader has also been doing his regular work. Fighting crime! The Bat Sign, that iconic light in the night sky really helps, calling Bat Man to arms. We wish you all a very happy new year (it’s got to be better than this one, right?) and thank you for reading! See you in 2021. Stay safe!
