I saw the light on the night that I passed by her window
I saw the flickering shadows of love on her blind
She was my woman
As she deceived me I watched and went out of my mind.
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.
At break of day when that man drove away, I was waiting
I cross the street to her house and she opened the door
($) She stood there laughing
I felt the knife in my hand and she laughed no more.
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 any more.
dal $egno al fine
Forgive me Delilah, I just couldn't take any more!
