    Oh Aranea, you’re so divine
    It’s hard to take my eyes off you
    You really shine

    Oh Aranea, you seem so wise
    And every time I look into
    Your spider eyes
    My hopeful heart just flies

    Time is flying too,
    So brush your hair and lace your shoe
    You know the ball won’t wait for you

    Oh Aranea, you’re proud and tall
    When you descend on silken threads
    Down to the Ball
    You’ll look the best of all

    The great thing over the name of the baby is that it pays tribute at the same time to the grandfather, the grandmother and arguably the first time the mother was onstage.

    Congrat’ Roger!
    I’ve always loved that song
    What a pity we can’t get a proper vid of the Butterfly Ball…
    The best singer on that night was John Lawton-he s awesome.
