OK, I've been at Record Lady too much this past week. Hillbilly Leprechauns, sung and yodeled by Ethel Delaney, the Swiss Miss Yodeler. Please don't make me transcribe it! :~)

I bet at least 46 of you have this lyric!!!

HILLBILLY LEPRECHAUNS

As sure as you're born,
There are strange leprechauns
Back in the hills of old Tenessee.
They yodel all night
Til dawn's early morn.
   (chipmunk-like yodeling)
... They yodel til morn,
These strange little hillbilly leprechauns.

All the folks here, they say
That these strange little men
Came from a land called Ireland.
They live on a drink that they brew from corn,
These strange little hillbilly leprechauns.
   (chipmunk-like yodeling)
... They yodel til morn,
These strange little hillbilly leprechauns.

If you met them, by chance
You would sure be surprised:
They're one foot tall and six inches wide;
With beards to their knees, they look so forlorn.
These strange little hillbilly leprechauns.
   (chipmunk-like yodeling)
... They yodel til morn,
These strange little hillbilly leprechauns.

Get the one that you love
For your love cannot see
Just take a trip to old Tennessee.
They'll dance and insist
That she give you a kiss.
These strange little hillbilly leprechauns.
   (chipmunk-like yodeling)
... They yodel til morn,
These strange little hillbilly leprechauns.

~S~

You can hear this recording at The Internet Archive:

HILLBILLY LEPRECHAUN
Words and music by Kay & Dolly Karroll, Cowboy Joe Bisko, & Chaw Mank.
Recorded by The Karroll Sisters, Decca (29437), 1955.

The lyrics are close enough to those posted by wysiwyg above that I won't bother repeating them.
