Delilah was a floozy
She never gave a damn
Delilah wasn't choosy
Till she fell for a swell buckaroo
Whose name was Sam

Delilah got in action
Delilah did her "kootch"
She gave him satisfaction
And he fell 'neath her spell
With the aid of love and "hootch"

But one day so they tell us
His true wife he did crave
Delilah she got jealous
And she tracked him and hacked him
And dug for Sam a grave

It's always that way with passion
So, cowboy, learn to behave
Or else you're liable to cash in
With no tombstone on your grave
Delilah, oh, Delilah

She's no babe in the wood
Run, cowboy, run a mile
If you love that kind of woman
She'll do you no good
