A Martian from space lands once a year  9
On St. Patty’s day for green beer 9
But got lost on his way 6
It wasn't a clear day 6
He couldn't see through the clouds to steer 9

He landed in a field full of deer 9
The deer all ran away out of fear 9
The Martian was surprised 6
Couldn't believe his eyes 6 
A green leprechaun was sitting there 9
