But catching this little man was hard I fear
Whenever he was seen he would always disappear

To my surprise around the fire dancing in the rain
Was a score of little leprechauns, and I heard em sing

I thought I'd wait until they finished their fun
And when they'd gone to sleep then maybe I'd catch me one
All tired from dancing they laid down by a log

As he hopped through the woods I could hear them sing:
