Beautiful Delilah, sweet as apple pie
Always gets a second look from fellas passin' by
Every time you see her she's with a different guy
Beautiful Delilah, that's the reason why

CHORUS:
The better don't allow me fool around with you
You are so tantalizing you just can't be true

Beautiful Delilah, dressed in the latest style
Swingin' like a pendulum, walkin' down the aisle
Deep romantic eyes, speak so low in miles
Maybe she will settle down and marry after a while

(chorus)

(instrumental)

Beautiful Delilah, bathin' in the sun
An audience of 17, and notice not a one
Local Casanova who wouldn't be outdone
Let her steal his heart away, break it just for fun

(chorus)
