Does anyone know a song DS says he learned in preschool, "somebody sadly walked away" with a moving crescendo at the end involving a ladybird?

he has been singing it so beautifully. I just love it! He makes a lot of things up though and I want to know if this is just his own musical genius or a real song in which case I want to learn it! grin Thanks!

Sorry, no idea.

It sounds lovely but I don't know it, maybe it was an original creation?

I had the same thing when DD1 started singing about a sandy boy but a quick google made me discover she hadn't made it up (and actually she had most of the words right <proud mummy emoticon>)

I've googled and come up with nothing... we have some lovely children!

He he - looking for random stuff on the internet is fun!

Unintentionally funny comment below from someone (an American?) complaining that it is a ladybug not a ladybird
