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

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

 

Its shell was smooth and apple-red,
Apple-red,
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,
Shoelaces,
Shoelaces.
It crawled across my shoelaces,
Then flew right off my foot!
