when I get all excited, listen to me dear.
St. Patrick's Day is now right here.

Find a shamrock green and small you might end up with a pot-o-gold. Find a shamrock green and small you might end up with a leprechaun.

The first one said, what do you bring.
The second one said is St Patrick’s day
The third one said lets begin to play
The fourth one said lets ran and be bold The fifth one said but do not touch my gold.
Clink clink they hear a sound and the five leprechauns ran off with a bound
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!
Eensy Weensy Leprechaun
An eenay weeny leprechaun Came out for St. Patrick's Day To look for the gold that was hidden far away over the rainbow was where he was told So, with a wink of his green eye He ran to get the gold
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,
He must give his gold away.
FIVE LITTLE SHAMROCKS Click to download the 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.
