Gather around children, let me tell you this story of love.
Well on this bright green leaf, I am a polka-dotted ladybug.
I fly around all day long, looking for my one true love.
Always bout to crash, looking down from above.
Well up-on-a top-a sunflower dancin’, was a fine black
crow all alone. He was singing me a song,
in this deep baritone. And I said “Now Mr. Crow,
you sho’ are looking good. And that song you sang,
well every word I understood.”
Well it ain’t easy being a red polka-dotted ladybug.
And with this big black crow, lord I’ve fallen in love.
And we fly around all day long, me out on his wing.
And in that deep baritone, to me he sings.
So gather around children, let me tell you this story of love.
