A Leprechaun All Small and Green

Adapted by Jolanda Garcia, KidsSoup, Inc.

A leprechaun all small and green,
he hides his gold so it can’t be seen.
If you see a rainbow on St. Patrick’s Day,
Follow it and he has to give it all away.

Great Big Rainbow
Sung to: "I'm a Little Teapot"
by Jean Warren

There's a great, big rainbow
In the sky,
With pretty colors
Way up high.

When it starts to rain
And the sun comes out-
A beautiful rainbow
Will pop out!

Pretty Rainbow
by Jean Warren 

Rainbow, rainbow in the sky, 
Pretty colors up so high. 
Oh, I wish that it would stay
Bringing color everyday.
