It is a fairytale, and a tall tale, and a story of friendship — a fun story for St. Patrick’s Day or any day at all.

“There once was a wee dog named Birdie
Who lived in a cottage most pur-ty
I asked, “Tell me why
This Birdie can’t fly?”
She told me I was just being churly.”

The Leprechaun also explains why children set traps for leprechauns…

“Why would ya catch a leprechaun, oh
They are just wee men in green trousers, no?
It’s magic we have
Could be good or bad
But everyone wants a pot o’gold.”

Lucky Mr. Liam also gives a few tips on how best to set a good leprechaun trap:

“For a leprechaun trap to be tricky
You might think to add something sticky
Perhaps a wee treat
Candy nice and sweet
But ta think ya can catch us, yer daffy!”
