Sam and Delilah
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
