The Lyrics

This is based on the Bible story of Samson and his Philistine girlfriend, who betrayed him to the Philistine army.
Hey there, Delilah
This is your ex-boyfriend Samson
I know you thought that lifting weights
Made me so buff and handsome
You were wrong
It’s cause I let my hair grow long
That makes me strong

Hey there, Delilah
You came in while I was sleeping
And I couldn’t feel you cutting
And I didn’t hear you creeping out the door
You left my hair piled on the floor
While I just snored.

Oh, what you did to me
Oh, while I was asleep
Oh, I’m a Nazarene
Oh, but you shave me clean
Delilah you’re so mean

I killed a lion, big and mean
And slaughtered many Philistines
all with a donkey's jawbone
that’s no lie.
Now I’m chained up to the wall
And I can’t cry no tears at all
Because they came and gouged out both my eyes.

Why’d you grab your clipping shears
And shave my head like Britney Spears?
And now I’m standing here in total shame
You’re to blame

Hey there, Delilah why did you have to deceive me
And it’s hard for me to think not long ago I wanted you to be my bride
But you took too much off the sides
Hey there, Delilah when you die
Just tell the Devil I said, "Hi,"
he’ll know why

Oh, it’s what you did to me,
Oh, now I’m up a creek.
Oh, now I feel so weak.
And Oh, I look like a freak.
Delilah, you’re a geek.
Oh, oh, oh

You're not going to get much love for this because you're new, which means you'll be ignored for a while .. AND because this is a fairly secularized site. I would guess the Venn diagram intersection of church going Christians and fans of the original song isn't too big. Still In all, I thought it was a good effort
