    Gabi, is there a letter missing in the second line of the cyphertext in the big block?

    between the B and the M should there be a P?

    well, i'm not gabi, but i did solve this, so i suppose i'll answer, cuz it doesn't look like gabi is online right now. as far as i can tell, there is no mistake in the cipertext.

    if there is, then both knocka and i copied it down wrong, and we both made the same copying error, and that error just happened to correct a typo...so i would assume from that that it is correct as is...if that makes sense.

    the second line is:
    MXEWZSQVOEQBPBPMNWTTWEQVOKQX

    there is a P between the B and M

    (just got started on this, have decoded that far anyway)

    Vun, two, three, spread out the cape
    Vun, two, three, twirl ‘round the floor
    Vun, two, three, left foot you swing
    Vun, two, three, then start to sing
    Vun, two, three, loud as you please!
    Vun, two, three, counting with ease!
    Vun, two, three, doing the batty bat!


    Bats: Batty, batty bat; batty bat; batty bat; batty bat!

    Count: Vun, two, three, count!

    Bats: Batty, batty bat; batty bat; batty bat; batty bat!

    Count: Vun, two, three, count!

    Bats: Batty, batty bat; batty bat; batty bat; batty bat!

    Count: Vun, two, three, count!
    Won’t you dance with me, doing the batty bat?
    Ha, ha!

    Sluggy is the third person to send me the answer I was looking for. It looks like the Count figured out what to do next

    Congrats!
