St. Patrick’s Day Songs


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.


FIVE LITTLE 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.

I do not remember where I got this one from but the kids love it.


The Leprechaun (Fingerplay)

A leprechaun is small and green,

(Use hand to indicate a small person.)

He hides where he cannot be seen.

(Cover eyes with hands.)

But if you catch one on this day,

(Shake finger.)

He must give his gold away.

(Pretend to put gold in pocket.)

  1. Leprechauns Are Dancing
    Tune: Sing a Song of Sixpence

    Leprechauns are dancing
    How they love to play
    Running in the fields and
    Playing tricks all day!

    You will never catch one
    No matter what you do
    They sing and dance and
    play their games
    And run away from you!


  2. Oh there lived in old Ireland an wee little man.
    Known by the name of a leprechaun.
    A fairy showmaker none other was he.
    And he had the givt of wishes three.
    Well, I’m tellin ya now should I meet him this day
    It is I who would boldy step up and say.
    Bless the friends that I love
    And the friends that love me
    And the friends of me friends,
    That’s me wishes three.


  3. Sung to: Where oh where is Mr Pumpkin…

    Where oh where is Mr Leprechaun,
    Where oh where is Mr Leprechaun,
    Where oh where is Mr Leprechaun,
    Way out yonder in the clover patch!

    Come on boys,
    Lets go find him,
    Come on girls,
    lets go find him,
    Come on kids,
    lets go find him,
    Way out yonder in the clover patch!

    You can add verses…
    He is all dressed in green,
    Way out yonder in the clover patch.
    and..
    He is looking for a four leaf clover,
    Way out yonder in the clover patch.
