One Spot, Two Spot

One Spot, Two Spot

Ladybird, ah Madame Ladybird,
It really is so good of you to call !
Is this just a flying visit,
Won’t you pack your wings up small ?

Ladybird, ah Madam Ladybird,
Have you flown by chance a good long way ?
Do you come for feasting, Miss,
Or have you eggs to lay ?

Ladybird, ah Madam Ladybird,
I see now that your wing-case is ajar –
Won’t you stay a little longer,
Ere your au revoir ?

Ladybird, ah Madam Ladybird,
Must you dash so soon to beat the rain ?
Shall I greet you on the morrow,
Or shall we not meet again ?
