Samson and Delilah

Tom Jones

Surrounded by Time


If I had my way
If I had my way
If I had my way
I would tear this building down

Well, you read about Samson all from his birth
He was the strongest man that ever lived on earth
One day while Samson was walking along
He looked down on the ground he saw an old jaw bone
He stretched out his arm, his chains broke like threads
When he got to move, ten thousand was dead

He said if I had my way
In this wicked world
If I had my way
I would tear this building down

Now Samson and the lion, they got in attack
Samson he crawled up on the lion's back
Well, you read about this lion, he killed a man with his paws
But Samson got hands around the lion's jaws
He ripped that beast till he killed him dead
And then the bees made honey in the lion's head

If I had my way
In this wicked world
If I had my way
Then I would tear this building down
Tear this building down
Tear this building down

Delilah was a woman, she was fine and fair
She had good looks in her and coal-black hair
Delilah, she gained old Samson's mind
When he first saw that woman, oh she looked so fine
Delilah, she climbed up on Samson's knee
She said, "Tell me where your strength lies if you please"
Then she spoke so kind, she talked so fair
And then Samson said, "Delilah, don't touch my hair"
You can shave my head clean as my hand
And then my strength becomes just like a natural man
Just like a natural man, just like a natural man

If I had my way
In this wicked world
If I had my way
Then I would tear this building down
I would tear this building down
I would tear this building down

Temptation broke Samson, he was blinded by lust
But his faith gave him strength, yeah and that was enough
He rose like a tempest, body and just
He buried that darkness in rubble and dust
In rubble and dust, in rubble and dust
In rubble and dust

He said if I had my way
He said if I had my way
He said if I had my way
I would tear this building down

If I had my way
