“Ladybird”

 

Ladybird Johnson, Ladybird Johnson

She’s such a dream when she keeps our land green

Ladybird Johnson, Ladybird Johnson

She’s never dour with her wild flowers

 

When LBJ chased JFK

She stood by her man

When Jackie O said cheerio

She showed us what a lady can

 

do.

 

Ladybird Johnson, Ladybird Johnson (2x)

 

As First Lady of the USA

It was her duty to show us the way

To a greener and healthier day

So full of flowers like the first of May

 

With her charm and hospitality

She made those diplomats oh so happy

And before things could get too gray

She gave each Russian a little nosegay

 

Ladybird Johnson, Ladybird Johnson (2x)

 

When the CIA invaded that Pig’s Bay

She stood in the wings

When Vietnam deflated Uncle Sam

Her cheer brought us tidings

 

of joy.

 

Ladybird Johnson, Ladybird Johnson

She’s such a dream when she keeps our land green

Ladybird Johnson, Ladybird Johnson

She’s never dour with her wild flowers
