"Bats" is a song from the season four episode "Bats!" of the animated television series My Little Pony Friendship is Magic. The song starts as a duet between Applejack and Fluttershy about how to handle the Vampire Fruit Bats' invasion of Sweet Apple Acres, with Applejack wanting to throw them out and Fluttershy wanting to try to coexist. At the end of the song the rest of the mane six end joining Applejack's side.

The song was performed by Applejack and Rainbow Dash's voice actress Ashleigh Ball, Fluttershy's voice actress Andrea Libman and Rarity's singing voice actress Kazumi Evans.

Lyrics

Those vampire bats will give you a fright
Eating apples both day and night
They rest for a minute, maybe three
Then they're eatin' every apple in your apple tree

They don't care about nada, not zilch, no, nothin'
'Cept bringin' about an orchard's destruction

Now wait just a minute, there's another side to this
And if I did not defend them, then I would be remiss
These bats are mamas and papas too
They care for their young just like we ponies do

Oh, give me a break, you're bein' too kind
These creatures have a one-track mind
The orchard is not their restaurant
But do they ever think what others may want?
No! They don't! And that is just a fact
These bats, they simply don't know how to act

That's where I have to disagree
They're loyal to their family
Spreading seeds both far and wide

You see one comin', you'd better run and hide!
They're big and ugly and mean as sin
Will ya look at the state my trees are in?

They help your trees, they'll grow stronger faster
They've turned my life to a total disaster!
Well, I for one don't have a doubt
These vermin must be stamped right out

I second that, they've got to go
These bats, they've got to hit the road
It comes down to just one simple fact
They've crossed the line, it's time to fight them back!

Stop the bats! Stop the bats!
Make them go and not come back!
Stop the bats! Stop the bats!
Make them go and not come back!
Stop the bats! Stop the bats!
Make them go and not come back!

Yes, it comes down to just one simple fact
They've crossed the line, it's time that we attack!
