There's no end to the love you can give When you change your point of view to underfoot Very good You may be flat but you're breathing And there's no doubt he's at home in his room Probably watching porn of you from the fall It's last call And you're the last one leaving And you thought you could change the world By opening your legs Well it isn't very hard Try kicking them instead And you thought you could change his mind By changing your perfume to the kind his mother wore O god Delilah why? I never met a more impossible girl In this same bar where you slammed down your hand And said "Amanda, I'm in love" No you're not You're just a sucker for the ones who use you And it doesn't matter what I say or do The stupid bastard's gonna have his way with you You're an unrescuable schizo Or else you're on the rag If you take him back I'm gonna lose my nerve I never met a more impossible girl I never met a more impossible girl At four o'clock he got off And you called up "I'm down at Denny's on route one And you won't guess what he's done" Is that a fact Delilah? Larry tap let you in through the back And use his calling card again For a quick hand of gin You are impossible, Delilah: the princess of denial And after 7 years in advertising you are none the wiser You're an unrescuable schizo Or else you're on the rag 'Cause if you take him back I'm gonna lose my nerve He's gonna beat you like a pillow You schizos never learn And if you take him home You'll get what you deserve So don't cry Delilah You're still alive Delilah You need a ride Delilah? Let's see how fast this thing can go
