In the bible, 1000 year bc
There's a story of ancient history
Bout a fella who was strong as he could be
Till he met a cheatin gal who brought him tragedy

CHORUS: Oh, run Samson run, Delilah's on her way
Run Samson run, you ain't got time to stay
Run Samson run, on your mark you better start
I'd rather trust a hungry lion than a gal with a cheatin heart

She was a demon, a devil in disguise
He was taken by the angel in her eyes
That lady barber was very well equipped
You can bet your bottom dollar that he was gonna get clipped

CHORUS

Oh Delilah made Sammy's life a sin
And he perished when the roof fell in
There's a moral so listen to me pal
There's a little of Delilah in each and every gal

CHORUS
I'd rather trust a hungry lion than a gal with a cheatin heart
