If I had my way
If I had my way
If I had my way
I'd burn this whole
Building down

Delilah was a woman
She was fine and fair
She had good looks
And coal black hair
Delilah
She can ground
On Samson's mind
When he saw this woman
She looked so fine
Delilah she climbed up
On Samson's knee
Said tell me where
Your strength lies
If you please
Then she spoke so kind
And she talked so fair
Til Samson said
Delilah
Cut off my hair

If I had my way
If I had my way
If I had my way
I'd burn this whole
Building down

People read
About old Samson
As far back
As his birth
He was
The strongest man
That ever lived
On Earth
One day
While Samsons walking
Walking along
Looked down
On the ground
And saw an old jawbone
And he stretched out
His arms
And his chains
Broke like thread
When he got to move
Ten thousand men
Was dead

If I had my way
If I had my way
If I had my way
I'd burn this whole
Building down
If I had my way
If I had my way
If I had my way
I'd burn this whole
Building down

Well
Samson and the lion
Got entwined in a fight
And Samson he jumped up
And took on
The lions might
You won't know
Just how a lion
Kill a man with his paws
Well
Samson got his hands up
Round that lions jaws
And he ripped that beast
And he killed him dead
And the bees laid honey
In the lions' head

If I had my way
If I had my way
If I had my way
I'd burn this whole
Building down
If I had my way
If I had my way
If I had my way
I would burn
This building down
If I had my way
If I had my way
If I had my way
I'd burn this whole
Building down
