About a month ago we got a “Wee Sing Bible Songs” cd for Maggie. I had the tape when I was growing up and really liked it. I am now beginning to see that because of my great affection for the songs, I probably drove my mother crazy. Mags has enjoyed singing a lot of the songs, and gets really excited when it is one that she sings at Sunday “cool”. One of her favorites is the one about Zacchaeus…here’s a little sample of how she sings it :
He cwimbed up in a sit-uh-more twee,
cause da Lord he wanted to see.
And as da Sav-or passed that way,
He look up in da twee,
and he said, “ZIKEA! You come down!
For I going to your house today.”
Hopefully Zacchaeus’ wife knew that you don’t have to be rich, just smart.
