St. Patrick's Day Songs

St. Patrick's Day Songs

The Leprechaun Song (sung to Mary Had a Little Lamb)
I'm a little leprechaun leprechaun leprechaun 
I'm a little leprechaun Who likes to hide my gold.
I dress in green from head to toe head to toe head to toe 
I dress in green from head to toe I wear green all day long!
You'll never catch me or my gold not my gold not my gold 
You'll never catch me or my gold I hide it much too well!




St. Patrick's Day (tune: If You're Happy and You Know It)
On Saint Patrick's day, you might see a leprechaun. (wee little lad)
If you close your eyes and wish, and pretend you are Irish, 
On St. Patrick's Day, you might see a leprechaun. 
On St. Patrick's Day, you might see a rainbow bright. (Ah make rainbow with arm)
On St. Patrick's Day you might see a pot of gold. (I’m rich Snap finger)
On St. Patrick's Day you might see a shamrock green. (Make a wish)
Leprechaun stew
Leprechaun stew, Leprechaun stew,
If I don't get some,
I don't know what I'll do.
Give away my pot of gold
Give away my shoe.
But don't give away my Leprechaun Stew.
Mix in potatoes, carrots too
Add some celery and broccoli too
Just wait till you taste my Leprechaun stew.

Go On A Leprechaun Hunt (an adaptation of the Bear Hunt)
Ask the children to listen closely and follow the directions. Instruct
them to clap the rhythm or slap their knees as you tell the story.
Going on a leprechaun hunt. I'm not afraid.
Let's go! Oh. look! I see a grassy field.
Can't go around it. Can't go under it. Can't go over it. Let's go through it.
Let's go! Swish, swish, swish, swish.
Oh, look! I see a giant tree.
Can't go over it. Can't go under it. Can't go through it. Let's climb it.
Let's go! Climb, climb, climb.
Oh, look! I see a river.
Can't go over it. Can't go around it. Can't go under it. Let's Swim it.
Let's go. Swim, swim, swim.
Oh, look! I see a dark cave.
Can't go around it. Can't go under it. Can't go over it. Let's tiptoe into it.
Let's go. Tippy, tippy, toe.
It's really dark in here. Better turn on my flashlight
Oh, no. I see something!
It's mean! It's green! It's a leprechaun! Let's go!
Run! Run! Swim! Swim! Climb! Climb! Swish! Swish!
Whew...safe at home again.
