With a yell that sounds a lot like Mighty Mouse, "Here I come to save the day!"

Did anybody else repeat that "ladybug" ditty as kids? In retrospect, it's as disturbing as some of the more gristly fairy stories...

Ladybug, ladybug, fly away home
Your house is on fire, and your children are gone


I mean, really, who thought that one up?

Yep, it was around even when I was a kid. Only we said, "and your children will burn." We children always wanted her to get there in time to save them. That little ditty might be like many of the nursery rhymes years ago that were really political in meaning.

Thanks for that link. I learned the hidden meanings for nursery rhymes many years ago in school and it is interesting to have that link to refresh my memory.
