Little Man Up In The Tree

(Zacchaeus)
Bob Hartman | Sam Hargreaves
Chorus 1
Little man peep through the branches
Little man up in the tree
Little man what are you looking for
Little man what do you see
Verse 1
Why are you hiding Zacchaeus
Why do you dangle your feet
Are you afraid of the people below
Gathering in the street
Verse 2
Are you afraid that they'll see you
The man who takes taxes for Rome
That pay for the soldiers who beat them
And leave them to suffer and groan
Verse 3
Are you afraid that they'll grab you
Alone and without your men
And hurt you because you have cheated them
Again and again and again
Chorus 2
Little man peep through the branches
Little man up in the tree
Little man what are you looking for
Little man what do you see
Verse 4
Jesus is coming Zacchaeus
Coming to Jericho town
And everyone wants to have tea with him
See how they swarm around
Verse 5
Come eat with me they all beg him
See how he tells them all No
He's looking for something Zacchaeus
Where do you think he will go
Verse 6
Jesus is coming Zacchaeus
Is that who you're looking for
Why would he eat with someone like you
Who steals from the working poor
Chorus 3
Little man peep through the branches
Little man up in the tree
Little man what are you looking for
Little man what do you see
Verse 7
He's speaking to you Zacchaeus
He's spotted you up in that tree
Listen he's saying Zacchaeus come down
Let's go to your house for tea
Verse 8
The crowd is now shouting Zacchaeus
Why would you go with that cheat
Why would you spend time with sinners Jesus
Why would you go there to eat
Verse 9
Down from the tree now Zacchaeus
Off to serve Jesus his tea
What will he say and what will he do
It's all a big mystery
Chorus 4
Little man peep through the branches
Little man up in the tree
Little man what are you looking for
Little man what do you see
Verse 10
What's that you're saying Zacchaeus
You're sorry for being a crook
You'll pay back the money you've stolen
Four times the money you took
Verse 11
You're helping the poor too Zacchaeus
Everyone's shocked by your plans
And Jesus says grinning from ear to ear
Salvation has come to this man
Verse 12
Everyone's smiling Zacchaeus
And it seems that you're smiling too
You thought you were looking for Jesus
But Jesus was looking for you
