[Spoken:]
Here's a story told in Ireland
Ever since the days of old;
It's the story of the leprechaun,
And his glittering pot of gold.

With his cobbler's hammer tapping,
He'll be tipped up on his shoes;
He'll mend your shoes, a star, a rose,
If he taps away your blues.

With his wee green pixie on his head,
Green boots upon his feet,
A tiny lad, an aproned man,
A toadstool for a seat.

Foolish men have tried to drop him,
Just to find his pot of gold;
But he has it in a secret place,
No man he can behold.

With his cobbler's hammer tapping,
He'll be tipped up on his shoes;
He'll mend your shoes, a star, a rose,
If he taps away your blues.

He can tell if you are greedy,
By the goods that's walking by;
And he'll smile and simply disappear,
In the twinkling of an eye.

Ah, but if you are an honest man,
And fate has been unkind;
His magic spell will change your luck,
Good fortune you will find.

With his cobbler's hammer tapping,
He'll be tipped up on his shoes;
He'll mend your shoes, a star, a rose,
If he taps away your blues.

~ Instrumental ~

With his cobbler's hammer tapping,
He'll be tipped up on his shoes;
He'll mend your shoes, a star, a rose,
If he taps away your blues.

[Spoken:] At the far end of the rainbow,
Ah, sure, it must be understood,
Lays the secret of the leprechaun:
To exchange bad luck for good.

With his cobbler's hammer tapping,
He'll be tipped up on his shoes;
He'll mend your shoes, a star, a rose,
If he taps away your blues.

With his cobbler's hammer tapping,
He'll be tipped up on his shoes;
He'll mend your shoes, a star, a rose,
If he taps away your blues.

[Fade:]
With his cobbler's hammer tapping,
He'll be tipped up on his shoes;
He'll mend your shoes, a star, a rose,
If he taps away your blues....
