The Lyrics

Hey there, people, Samson is my name
I can claim the strongest man's the fame
My hair is long and my muscles well built
I can slay thousand men and feel no guilt
Here I am of the Danite tribe
I'm the one's who is judge, I wont' take no bribe
I never touched a woman, I never drunk the wine-o
I'm a nazir all my life and I'm quite a psycho -

Oh G-d I am the Is-raelite dream
I know I can make the Philistines scream
And I'm one handsome son of a gun -
Im gonna take a donkey's jawbone and get 'em done -

Women's fascination
Came creepin across the nation
I tell you people I was quite a made -a
When I courted this shiksa by the name of Delila
She made a little sleepy,
Aw, that bitch was really vile and creepy
She had my locks all opened, came a man cut my hair
They gang-upped me and bound me - and that's not fair

Oh G-d I was the Is-raelite dream
But my eyes are poked out and I guess I'm creamed
And I'm one miserable son-of-a-gun
I'm chained on a grindstone and that ain't fun -

So they took me out to the temple of Dagon
They made me to dance at the altar with chains on
People gathered on the rooftop
They wanted me to the do the twisting a-non-stop
Eventually I found a pillar
which woke up again my insticts of killer
I did take apart the temple by breaking the columns
And it all went dowin in heap in rumbling and falling

Oh G-d, I was the Is-raelite dream
I yanked up the pillars over the extreme
And it all came tumbling down -
I smote three thousand Philistines on ground -
Oh G-d, oh G-d, I'm so strong again now !
Thanks to my hair which has all -yup- regrown now
And my name is Samson of Dan -
Watch me now, I'm going down
And my name is Samson of Dan -
Watch me now, I'm goin down...
