St. Patrick's Day Songs

I’m A Little Leprechaun

Tune: I’m A Little Tea Pot
 
I’m a little Leprechaun,
Dressed in green.
Hiding in the shamrocks,
I can’t be seen.
If you run and catch me – do you know?
You can have my pot of gold!
 
Activity: We sing this song while a teacher hides a leprechaun in the room, then the children run to find him!
 

Catch A Leprechaun

Tune: Mulberry Bush
 
Oh, let’s go catch a leprechaun,
Leprechaun, leprechaun.
Oh, let’s go catch a leprechaun,
He’ll give us all his gold.
 

I’m A Little Shamrock

Tune: I’m A Little Tea Pot
 
I’m a little shamrock,
See my leaves.
Count my 3 petals if you please.
If you give me water and lots of sun,
I’ll bring you good luck and lots of fun.
 

One Wee Leprechaun

(Game where child sneaks a gold coin from the pot.)
 
There was one wee leprechaun
So very, very old.
There was one wee leprechaun
Counting all his gold.
Then along came (child’s name)
Who frightened him away
Then she took his gold
On St. Patrick’s Day.
 

If You’re Lucky And You Know It

Tune: If You’re Happy And You Know It
 
If you’re lucky and you know it, clap your hands.
If you’re lucky and you know it, clap your hands.
If you’re lucky and you know it,
Then you’re face will surely show it.
If you’re lucky and you know if clap your hands.
 
(Continue with additional verses: shout good luck, catch a leprechaun, stomp your feet, spin around, etc)
