St Patrick’s Day

St. Patrick’s Day is here, you see.
We’ll pick some shamrocks, one, two, and three.
We’ll count the leaves and look them over,
And maybe find a four-leafed clover.

I’ll sew green buttons on my vest;
Green for St. Patrick is the best.
I’ll wear a green hat, very high,
And dance a jig – at least I’ll try!
