They've got him up a tree
He knows he's up a tree
The dogs are showin' teeth

They know he must come down
They know that they can wait
He knows they can wait
He sees their shiny teeth

He cries Lord, help me
Can't you see I'm up a tree
The Lord knows he's up a tree
He watched him climb the tree
He knows he's up a tree
He knows he must come down

He cries Lord, help me
Can't you see I'm up a tree
The Lord knows he's up a tree
He saw him climb the tree
He knows he's up a tree
He knows he must come down

They're circlin 'round the tree
They've got him up a tree
He knows he's up a tree
Someday he must come down

The dogs know they can wait
He knows they can wait
The dogs are showin' teeth
He sees their shiny teeth

He cries Lord, help me
Can't you see I'm up a tree
The Lord knows he's up a tree
He watched him climb the tree
He knows he's up a tree
