Hey There Delilah spoof, by Tim Hawkins

Played the same as the regular song, with different words...
Thus, it's a "spoof"

Intro: D, F#m

Verse1:
D                           F#m
Hey there Delilah, this is your ex-boyfriend Sampson,
       D                                          F#m
And I know you thought that lifting weights, made me so buff and handsome,
        
Bm            G                      A      Bm             A*           
You were wrong, it's 'cuz I let my hair grow long, it makes me strong,


D                           F#m
Hey there Delilah, you came in while I was sleeping,
       D                            F#m
And I didn't feel you cutting and I didn't hear you creeping
         Bm    G           A                  Bm               A*
out the door, You left my hair piled on the floor, while I just snored

Chorus:
D                       Bm       D              Bm
Oh, it's what you did to me, Oh, while I was asleep,
D              Bm       D                  Bm
Oh, I'm a Nazarene, Oh, but you shaved me clean,
                   D
Delilah you're so mean

Bridge:
G                                    A
Killed a lion, big and mean, and slaughtered many Philistines, 
     D                                   Bm
All with a donkey's jaw bone, that's no lie,
G                                      A
But now I'm chained up to a wall, and I can't cry no tears at all,
     D                                   Bm
Because the came and gouged out both my eyes...
 G                                         A
Why'd you grab those clippin' shears, and shave my head like Britney Spears,
      D                               Bm                       D
'Cuz now I'm standing hear in total shame, Delilah, you're to blame

Verse 3:
 D                          F#m                              
Hey there Delilah, why did you have to deceive me? 
          D                             F#m                       Bm
It's so hard for me to think, not long ago I wanted you to be my bride,
G             A                    Bm     =
But you took too much off the sides, 
G             A              Bm
hey there Delilah when you die,
G             A              Bm
Just tell the devil, I said "hi", 
           A*
He'll know why

Chorus 2:
D                        Bm    D                  Bm
Oh, it's what you did to me, Oh, Now I'm up the creek,
D                  Bm      D                Bm
Oh, now I feel so weak, Oh, I look like a freak,
                         D
Delilah, you're such a geek...


Chorus keeps playing:

D, Bm, D, Bm, etc.
