Ladybird, ladybird,
The black head, hear my word.
Fly, fly to the other world.
Bring us the bread that isn't old:
The black one, the white one,
But don't bring the burned one!

Ladybird, the black head
Fly away, bring us the bread:
The black one, the white one,
Don't you bring us the burned one!

The black head

Fly away to heaven ,
Bring us some bread:

A black one and a white one
Only not a burned one.

Fly away to heaven.

Ladybird, ladybird, fly away home,
Your house is a-fire, your children all gone,
All but one that lies under a stone;
Fly the home, ladybird, ere it be gone!

Божия коровка,
Чёрная головка.
Улети на небо,
Принеси нам хлеба:
Чёрного и белого,
Только не горелого.
