Zacchaeus was a greedy little man,
He cheated all the people in the land.
When the rent they did not pay,
He would take their lands away
And their furniture and everything they had.

Zacchaeus, Zacchaeus, nobody liked Zacchaeus,
Zacchaeus, Zacchaeus, nobody liked Zacchaeus.

One day he heard that Jesus was in town
The man who loved just ev'ryone around
So he climbed the highest tree,
For his luck he couldn't see
Such a little wee man was he.

Then Jesus came along that very way,
And full of love the people heard him say,
To Zacchaeus in the tree,
"Won’t you please come down to me,
For I’d love to come to you house for tea."
