Lucky Leprechaun

(Sung to the tune of: "The Itsy Bitsy Spider")

The little leprechaun went skipping 'cross the ground.
He found a four leaf clover with petals all around.
He made a secret wish that his day be filled with joy.
Then he ran to share his luck with every girl and boy!


I'm A Little Leprechaun

(Sung to the tune of: "I'm a Little Teapot")

I'm a little leprechaun, can't you see?
I am as tiny as can be!
I only come around just once a year
That's when St. Patrick's Day is here!


This Little Leprechaun

This little leprechaun slid down the rainbow,
(Point to thumb.)
This little leprechaun stayed home.
(Point to index finger.)
This little leprechaun picked a shamrock,
(Point to middle finger.)
This little leprechaun found some gold.
(Point to ring finger.)
This little leprechaun cried, "See if you can catch me,"
(Point to little finger.)
As he ran home.
(Wiggle little finger.)


Leprechaun, Leprechaun

Leprechaun, leprechaun,
Hiding in the hay.
(Hide pointer finger under opposite hand.)
Leprechaun, leprechaun,
Don't you run away.
(Hop pointer finger around.)
Leprechaun, leprechaun,
Let's go out and play.
(Hop both pointer fingers together.)
Leprechaun, leprechaun,
It's St. Patrick's Day!
(Dance pointer fingers up and down.)


Lucky Leprechaun

(Sung to the tune of: "Jingle Bells")

Leprechaun, Leprechaun,
Oh, where can you be?
Come a little closer now,
Don't be afraid of me.

Leprechaun, Leprechaun,
You bring luck my way.
I'd really like to see you
On this St. Patrick's Day!


On St. Patrick's Day

(Sung to the tune of: "If You're Happy and You Know It")

On St. Patrick's Day, we'll all wear somethin' green.
On St. Patrick's Day, we'll all wear somethin' green.
Wear a green scarf, belt, or hat,
Or green socks - just think of that!
On St. Patrick's Day, we'll all wear somethin' green.

On St. Patrick's Day, we'll wish each other luck.
On St. Patrick's Day, we'll wish each other luck.
"Luck o' the Irish," we will say
To each other on that day.
On St. Patrick's Day, we'll wish each other luck.


Leprechaun Poem

Leprechaun, leprechaun, don't catch cold.
Leprechaun, leprechaun, come get the gold.
Eat some cereal, drink some tea.
Leprechaun, leprechaun, visit with me.

I promise not to keep you for more than just a spell.
My mother wouldn't let me, so it's just as well.
Leprechauns, leprechauns, where do you dwell?
Leprechauns, leprechauns, elves, and trolls.
I think you live on grassy knolls.

Leprechauns, leprechauns everywhere.
Leprechauns, leprechauns in my hair.
On my foot and near my ear
Leprechaun, leprechaun, see you next year!


Top Of The Morning To You

(Sung to the tune of: "Home On The Range")

Oh top of the morning to you
Where the leprechauns dance all around
St. Patrick is here
And we're as happy as can be
Oh, Happy St. Patrick's to you!


Can You Catch A Leprechaun?

(Sung to tune of" Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star")

Can you catch a leprechaun?
Hurry, quick or he'll be gone!
Just when you are getting near
The leprechaun will disappear.
Can you catch a leprechaun?
Hurry, quick or he'll be gone!


St. Patrick's Day Song

(Sung to the tune of: "Mary Had A Little Lamb")

I'm looking for a leprechaun,
leprechaun, leprechaun.
I'm looking for a leprechaun,
Do you know where he's gone?

He wears a suit that's made of green,
Made of green, made of green.
He wears a suit that's made of green,
Do you know where he's gone?

He lives by a rainbow and hides his gold,
Hides his gold, hides his gold.
He lives by a rainbow and hides his gold,
Do you know where he's gone?

If you see a leprechaun,
Leprechaun, leprechaun.
If you see a leprechaun,
Please tell me where he's gone!



(Sung to the tune of: "Three Blind Mice")

Leprechauns, leprechauns,
Hiding here, hiding there,
They don't want us to see them play,
Every year on St. Patrick's Day.
See them smile in their cute little way,
Leprechauns, leprechauns.


Five Little Leprechauns

Five little leprechauns playing in the sun.
The first one said, “Oh, my! We’re having fun!”
The second one said, “We need to spread some joy!”
The third one said, “Let’s find some girls and boys.”
The fourth one said, “There’s gold to be found!”
The fifth one said, “Let’s look all around!”
Then out came a rainbow, shining bright and bold.
So, five little leprechauns ran to find some gold!


Wee Little Patrick

(Sung to the tune of: "Yankee Doodle")

Patrick is a leprechaun
He has a sack of gold
He hides it in a special place
Between two stumps, I'm told

I think I once saw Patrick
Out in the woods at play
He smiled and laughed and winked his eye
And then he ran away

Don't try to follow Patrick
To find his treasure sack
He'll twist and jump and run away
And he never will come back.


Five Wee Leprechauns

Five wee leprechauns scurrying by my door,
One jumped away, then there were 4.
Four wee leprechauns climbing in my tree,
One hid in the green leaves, then there were 3.
Three wee leprechauns, just a busy few,
One went for a pot of gold, then there were 2.
Two wee leprechauns, having lots of fun,
One hopped over the rainbow, then there was 1.
One wee leprechaun, with all his work done.
He slipped off for a nap, then there was 0.


I'm A Little Leprechaun I

(Sung to the tune of: "I'm a Little Teapot")

I'm a little Leprechaun short and green,
Here is my shamrock but I can't be seen,
When you pull my feather, hear me scream
(everyone scream)
I'm a little Leprechaun, short and green.


I'm A Little Leprechaun II

(Sung to the tune of: "I'm a Little Teapot")

I'm a little leprechaun
Dressed in green,
The tiniest man
That you have ever seen.
If you ever catch me, so it's told,
I'll give you my pot of gold.


I'm A Little Leprechaun III

(Sung to the tune: "Mary Had a Little Lamb" )

I'm a little leprechaun,
Leprechaun, leprechaun.
I'm a little leprechaun
On St. Patrick's Day.

See me dance a little jig,
Little jig, little jig.
See me dance a little jig
When I come out to play.

Join your child in dancing a jig while you sing.

Do Your Ears Point Up?

(Sung to the tune of: "Do Your Ears Hang Low?")

Do your ears point up, (Pull on tops of ears.)
Do you have a lot of luck? (Cross fingers.)
For gold do you dig, (Pretend to dig.)

Can you do an Irish jig?  (Dance a jig.)
If the answer's "yes," (Nod head.)
Your a Leprechaun, I guess! (Wink eye.)
Do your ears point up?


Ten Little Leprechauns

10 little leprechauns dancing in a ring,
10 little leprechauns, hear them sing!
10 little leprechauns wave their arms high;
10 little leprechauns give aloud cry;
10 little leprechauns in a hollow tree,
10 little leprechauns quiet as can be~


I'm A Little Leprechaun

(Sung to the tune: "I'm A Little Teapot" )

Faster and faster
I will go!

How Many Leprechauns?

(Sung to the tune of:  "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star")

How many leprechauns without a hat?


I'm A Little Shamrock I

(Sung to the tune: "I'm A Little Teapot" )
