Belafonte Lyrics

Belafonte Lyrics

Postby ebick » Wed Oct 25, 2006 9:14 am

I was doing a little research on this one and came across some great additional lyrics from a Harry Belafonte version. Enjoy.

Samson was the strongest man long ago
No one could a beat him, as we all know
Until he clash with Deliah on top of the bed
She told them all the strength was in the hair of his head

You meet a girl at a pretty dance
Thinking that you would stand a chance
Take her home, thinking she’s alone
Open de door you find her husband home

I was treating a girl independently
She was making baby for me
When de baby born and I went to see
Eyes was blue it was not by me

Garden of Eden was very nice
Adam never work in Paradise
Eve meet snake, Paradise gone
She make Adam work from that day on

Methusaleh spent all his life in tears
Lived without a woman for 900 years
One day he decided to have some fun
The poor man never lived to see 900 and one
Ed

Interesting... Ricky Ricardo sang this on I Love Lucy. And, IIRC, he sang a hybrid of these lyrics and the NOLA lyrics the boys used to sing.
