“The Hanging Tree”

That Jew The Jew
Is destined for the tree
50 cubits high
In the garden of the King
Strange things are happening
No stranger would it be
If Haman were invited
to banquet with the queen
Oh what, oh what 
Disturbs the king’s dreams
Mordecai saved his life
But received no honoring
Who will advise me
No stranger can it be
Bring in Haman
Haman the Agagi
Oh who oh who
Deserves honor more than me
Your majesty let ride
This man dressed as royalty
On king’s horse led by noble

No stranger can it be
What you say is right for

Mordechai Hayehudi
Zeresh, Wise men
what will come of me?
Wear a necklace of hope [one voice says rope]
Maintain your dignity

Strange things did happen here

No stranger would it be
To learn you will fall to
Mordechai HaYehudi
oh who oh who is
swinging from the tree?
They strung up Haman
For trying to kill the queen
Strange things did happen here
The strangest one could be
haman hangs instead 
of Mordechai HaYehudi
oh who oh who is
swinging from the tree
10 of Haman’s sons
 died for his folly

Strange things did happen here

No stranger would it be
To learn here ended
the line of Agagi
