St Patricks Day Songs

1. Lucky Leprechaun to the tune of Jingle Bells

This is one of my favorite leprechaun songs. It goes like this:

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!

2. St. Patrick’s Day Song Tune to 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 hide 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!

3. LITTLE LEPRECHAUN 

To 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 big pot of gold.

4. If You’re Wearing Green Today

By Elizabeth McKinnon

(Sung to ‘f You’re Happy and You Know It)

If you’re wearing green today, dance a jig.

If you’re wearing green today, dance a jig.

If you’re wearing green today,

Dance a jig, then smile and say,

Have a very Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

5. I’m a LIttle Leprchaun–Sung to 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.

6. FIVE GREEN SHAMROCKS

1 green shamrock, in the morning dew,

Another one sprouted, and then there were two.

2 green shamrocks, growing beneath a tree;

Another one sprouted and then there were three.

3 green shamrocks, by the cottage door;

Another one sprouted, and then there were four.

4 green shamrocks, near a beehive

Another one sprouted, and then there were five.

5 little shamrocks, bright and emerald green,

Think of all the luck these shamrocks will bring.
