St. Patrick’s Day Songs for Kids

I’M A LITTLE LEPRECHAUN SONG LYRICS

I’m a little leprechaun
Dressed in green,
The tiniest man
That you have seen.
If you ever catch me,
so it’s told,
I’ll give you my big pot of gold.
I’m a little leprechaun
Imagine that
With my little green boots
And my big green hat
At the end of the rainbow
So, it’s told
You will find my pot of gold
I’m a little leprechaun
Dressed in green,
The tiniest man
That you have seen.
If you ever catch me,
so it’s told,
I’ll give you my big pot of gold.

St. Patrick’s Day Songs – History

The story of St Patrick’s Day
Began so long ago
The lyrics in this song
Will tell you
All you need to know
The seventeenth of March
Is when this joyous holiday
Is celebrated happily
With colorful parades

Dee Lai Dee Dai Dee
Dai Dee Dai Dee
Lai Dee Dai Dee Dai
Hummm…Hummm…

Patrick was only sixteen when
The pirates captured him
They sold him to slavery
And took him to Ireland

He kept the faith
And made his escape
When he was twenty-two
And made it back to Britain
‘Twas the only home he knew

Patrick had a vision
To return to Ireland
And vowed to teach Christianity
Until the bitter end
Legend says that Patrick used
The shamrock to explain
That the Father, Son and Holy Ghost
Are all and one the same

On this day the Irish dress
In many shades of green
And some are feeling lucky
With the leprechauns, they’ve seen
It’s music and fun for everyone
We’ll party and we’ll play
Come one, come all
Come join along
On this St. Paddy’s Day!

St. Patrick’s Day Songs – Math

Counting with a Leprechaun

Have you ever seen a leprechaun
Little green hat and boots so brown
Have you ever seen a leprechaun
Can you catch one sneakin’ around

He’s got a secret pot of gold
Hiding at the end of a rainbow
And you can try to find it but you’ll never win
Get a four leaf clover and try again

Have you ever seen a leprechaun
Tiny little trickster from Ireland
Have you ever seen a leprechaun
Maybe just maybe you can make him your friend

St. Patrick’s Day Songs for Preschoolers – Rainbows

The Colors of the Rainbow

Larry the leprechaun found his gold at the end of the rainbow.
The colors of the rainbow are so beautiful to see
The colors of the rainbow, sing the colors along with me
Red, orange, yellow, green and blue, indigo and you know there’s violet too
Red, orange, yellow, green and blue, indigo and you know there’s violet too
The colors of the rainbow are so beautiful to see
The colors of the rainbow, sing the colors along with me
Red, orange, yellow, green and blue, indigo and you know there’s violet too
Red, orange, yellow, green and blue, indigo and you know there’s violet too
This is Larry the leprechaun, move with my friend, Jack to the colors of the rainbow.
Red- shake your head, shake it, shake it
Orange- make the shape of an orange, make the shape, make the shape
Yellow- jiggle like jello, jiggle, jiggle
Green- make your body lean, whoa
Blue- touch your shoe, down low, low
Indigo- move real slow, slow motion
Violet- fly like a jet, I’m flying, flying
The colors of the rainbow are so beautiful to see
The colors of the rainbow, sing the colors along with me

RAINBOW SONG

See the rainbow way up high,

Spreading colors in the sky.

Red and orange, yellow too

Green and purple hug some blue.

Watch it quickly, it won’t last.

Rainbows can disappear fast!
