Happy St. Pats

You went looking for a leprechaun
and what did you see?
Did you see the leprechaun
dancing with me?

Leprechaun, leprechaun
where did you run?
Round your table
just havin’ some fun.

Go ye down to the pub McClairy
Go ye down to the pub I say
Go ye down and find Father McGinnis
Father McGinnis will teach you to pray.

I have no business with Father McGinnis.
I have no need of McClairy’s Pub.
You have all the Poitin a wee one could ask for
And when I get drunk I’ll just sleep in your tub.

Well then Leprechaun, I can’t say I blame ya.
If you want my Poitin, then go right ahead.
We’ll sing and fiddle and drink all night.
And if you get drunk use my tub for a bed.

So I handed the wee one, my stoneware jug.
And he took out his fiddle to play.
And we laughed and we drank and we danced and we fiddled
All night long till the dawning new day.

When I looked out my window I saw Father McGuinnis.
He heard the ruckus as he was passing this way.
I told my story to Father McGinnis.
Father McGinnis just started to pray.

Dear Lord forgive him his drinking.
Dear Lord make his path straight and true
Dear Lord may he be in Church every Sunday.
DEAR LORD! … I just saw a Leprechaun!
