PRIMARY SCHOOL TUNE of yore Zacchaeus is stuck somewhere in the dark recesses of your mind, but how well do you remember it?

greedy, little

steals from all the people that he can
stole from all the people in the land

cheated all the people in the land
steals and cheats from everyone he can
3. "When the ____ they _____"
debts, could not pay
rent, didn't pay

tax, failed to pay
rent, could not pay
4. "He would take their lands away..."
And their homes and farms and everything they had
And their goats and lambs and all the goods they had

And their furniture and everything they had
And anything at all that they had
5. "Zacchaeus! Zacchaeus!...."
Nobody loves Zacchaeus
Nobody likes Zacchaeus

Nobody likes you Zacchaeus
Nobody liked Zacchaeus
6. "One day he heard that Jesus was in town..."
And Jesus loved just everyone around
The man who loved just everyone around

And climbed the tree so he could have his say
And full of love the people heard him say

And looking him he knew he had to say
10. "To Zacchaeus in the tree: won't you please come down to me...."
For I'd love to come to your house for tea
To forgive your sins and show your love to me

For I'd love to put your sins into the sea
And I'll heal your sins and take you on my knee
