    Nice song, tigress_tim. Our folk song about ladybugs is strange and has a haunting tune:

    Ladybug, ladybug,
    Fly away home.
    Your house is on fire.
    And your children . . .
    They will burn . . .
    They will burn . . .

    Sorry! Awful, isn't it? But some of these tunes are old and date back to 'ye olde country.' Often this 'olde music' is in a 'minor' key and the lyrics are very sad--even tragic!! This type of music is still alive in the Appalachian Mountains, USA. Whether the "Ladybug" song is actually of this origin, I am not absolutely sure.

    @JF This is the one I was taught:

    Ladybird, ladybird fly away home,
    Your house is on fire and your children are gone.

    Hi! Thank you, Mixalopoulos. (And you're still calling me "Jankie Frasmine"!! ) It's really good to hear from you!

    Yes, I just looked this up online! Apparently what you learned was the original British song. The American version may have been changed because of cases of arson--people who started these damaging fires were called "firebugs." Then it might have gotten associated with "ladybird/ladybug" and the "American" version of the song became a cautionary song to warn about such dangers.

    Here's one of my pretty animals, and one of my favorite breeds. the Shetland Sheepdog or "Sheltie":

    turkish song for ladybugs:

    uç uç böceğim, annen sana terlik papuç alacak// fly fly, my bug, your mother is going to buy slippers and shoes for you..

    what is a ladybug supposed to do with them?!
    Endless Climb
    I am blind
    Why can't I hear?
    Color blind
    Speaking a phrase
    Instantly grown
    I am blind
    Waiting in line
