[Batman! Always Batman! Always driving villains bats!]

He always has a sidekick
Some boy wonder at his call!
His utility belt holds everything
Can't find that at the mall!

The Batmobile is super fast
There is no car that is surpassed!
It's a good thing we've got Arkham
Cause he really drives us bats!

Drives us bats!
Drives us bats!
He really drives us bats, bats, bats!
He drives us bats!

Whether dancing the Batusi
Or using an array of tools
He's always got the answer!
He makes us look like fools!

He's got no super powers
He's just a flying rat!
It's a good thing we've got Arkham
'Cause he really drives us bats!

Drives Us Bats!
(World's Greatest Detective!)
Drives Us Bats!
(Foiling every evil scheme!)

He really drives us bats, bats, bats!
He drives us bats!

Even without shark repellent...
He's tougher than he seems
Other heroes often ask....
Why is he always the top cat?

He drives us bats
Drives us bats
Drives us bats!
