beautiful delilah lyrics – chuck berry

beautiful delilah, sweet as apple pie
always gets a second look from fellas p*ssin’ by
every time you see her she’s with a different guy
beautiful delilah, that’s the reason why

chorus:
the better 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
swingin’ like a pendulum, walkin’ down the aisle
deep romantic eyes, speak so low in miles
maybe she will settle down and marry after a while

(chorus)

(instrumental)

beautiful delilah, bathin’ in the sun
an audience of 17, and notice not a one
local casanova who wouldn’t be outdone
let her steal his heart away, break it just for fun

(chorus)
