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

Rebecca 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
Swinging like a pendulum, walking down the aisle
See so many guys, speak so low in miles
Maybe she will settle down and marry after a while

Rebecca don't allow me
Fool around with you
You are so tantalizing
You just can't be true

Beautiful Delilah bathing in the sun
Audience of seventeenand notice not a one
Local Casanova who wouldn't be outdone
Let her steal his heart away, break it just for fun

Rebecca don't allow me
Fool around with you
You are so tantalizing
You just can't be true
