Note: I posted that tune as a mazurka but I dont think it actually is a mazurka.

Well, on initial play ~ hanter-dro, laridé à six temps? 😏

~ something on that side of the railroad?

Yes "c", maybe a Laridé à six temps…

…It was a French Leprechaun

Isn’t it curious that "Lepre" in italian means "Hare"?

A version for those liking chromatic stuff:

I like it, it was a pleasant repast while I prepared hot spiced wine and mince pies… Hare would be a welcome dish for Christmas… So far I’ve only had wild rabbit… 😉

I forgot to say that tune has to be played with a bit of swing.
