    Lyrics

    verse 1

    I saw the light on the night that I passed by her window
    I saw the flickering shadows of love on her blind.

    pre-chorus

    She was my woman
    As she deceived me I watched and went out of my mind.

    chorus

    My, my, my, Delilah! Why, why, why, Delilah?
    I could see that girl was no good for me
    But I was lost like a slave that no man could free.

    verse 2

    At break of day when that man drove away, I was waiting
    I crossed the street to her house and she opened the door.

    pre-chorus

    She stood there laughing
    I felt the knife in my hand and she laughed no more.

    chorus

    My, my, my, Delilah! Why, why, why, Delilah?
    So before they come to break down the door
    Forgive me Delilah, I just couldn't take anymore!

    pre-chorus

    She stood there laughing
    I felt the knife in my hand and she laughed no more.

    chorus

    My, my, my, Delilah! Why, why, why, Delilah?
    So before they come to break down the door
    Forgive me Delilah, I just couldn't take anymore!

    outro

    Forgive me Delilah, I just couldn't take anymore!
