Ladybird


“Ladybird” è il nome inglese della “Coccinella Magnifica”…
Ladybird sat on me hand
I know if tha stays when I've finished me rhyme
Whatever it is I command
Whatever I'm wishin’ for soon will be mine.
In our 'ouse there's no din
I wish there were somebody in.

Ladybird, ladybird, fly away wom
Thi 'ouse is on fire, and thi childer are gone.

Ladybird, listen to me.
I've not seen me faither for many a day
He comes wom whenever he's free
But not very much 'cause he works far away
Last year he worked in the town
Now they're pullin' the factory down.

Ladybird, ladybird, fly away wom
Thi 'ouse is on fire, and thi childer are gone.

Ladybird, in't it a crime?
Me mam is a-workin' away down in t’ mill
‘Er’ll come wom about supper time
‘Er’s on afternoons and I've hours to kill.
I'll queue for some chips and some fish
Then I'll switch on the telly and wish.

Ladybird, ladybird, fly away wom
Thi 'ouse is on fire, and thi childer are gone.

Ladybird, don't spread your wings
I don't understand these words on the news.
Re-deployment, inflation and things -
It's just like a game, some win and some lose.
But some of 'em win all the time!
Me mam says as cheatin's a crime…

Ladybird, ladybird, fly away wom
Thi 'ouse is on fire, and thi childer are gone.
