Song: Ladybug Song
Sung to the tune of "Mary Had a Little Lamb"
Step 1
"Ladybug Song"

I saw a little ladybug,
I saw a little ladybug.
It landed on my shoe.


Its shell was smooth and apple-red,
Its shell was smooth and apple-red,
With lots of black spots, too.


I tried to count those tiny spots,
Tiny spots,
Tiny spots.
I tried to count those tiny spots,
But it would not stay put.


It crawled across my shoelaces,
It crawled across my shoelaces,
Then flew right off my foot!


- Jennifer Bové
