Five Little Ladybugs

Five little ladybugs sitting on a flower.
One flew away when it began to shower.
Four little ladybugs crawling on a tree.
One flew away, and that left three.
Three little ladybugs walking on you.
One flew away and that left two.
Two little ladybugs resting in the sun.
One flew away, and that left one.
One little ladybug flew away home,
She didn’t want her children left alone.

Five Little Ladybugs Dancing on the Shore
Five little ladybugs dancing on the shore,
One danced away and then there were four.
Four little ladybugs dipping in the sea,
One chased a fish and then there were three.
Three little ladybugs admiring the view
One skipped off and then there were two,
Two little ladybugs bathing in the sun
One flew home, leaving only one.
One little ladybug all alone.
She called her friends on the telephone.
They came back, now there's five
To dance and sing the ladybug jive!
