Samson and Delilah's beauty shop
Come on baby let your long hair drop
Samson and Delilah's beauty shop
Come on pretty baby let your long hair drop

I got easy money
Tell me where to find the best salon
Past the local liquor store
A quarter of a mile beyond
They'll keep a-whirlin' and a-twirlin'
And a-curlin' your hair
You can be believeing
You'll be happy when you're leavin' there

Right down to...
Samson and Delilah's beauty shop
Come on baby let your long hair drop
Samson and Delilah's beauty shop
Come on pretty baby let your long hair drop

Donna's got a date and
Kathie's gonna graduate alright
All at S&D's will guarantee
You're gonna look your best tonight
Well, listen to me, you gotta believe
They'll never leave you in a lurch
All at S&D's will guarantee
You're lookin' mighty nice for church

I'm talkin' 'bout...
Samson and Delilah's beauty shop
Come on baby let your long hair drop
Samson and Delilah's beauty shop
Come on pretty baby let your long hair drop

Mrs. Grace's highest praise
Is something very hard to get
She never set her face
In anybody else's place again
Well, a while ago Mr. Cole
Would never even step inside
But now you know that this is so
He even gets his grey hair dyed

Right down at...
Samson and Delilah's beauty shop
Come on baby let your long hair drop
Samson and Delilah's beauty shop
Come on pretty baby let your long hair drop

Sitin' and contemplatin'
Waitin' for you hair to dry
Readin' magazines about
The people in the public eye
Johnny Carson, Richard Burton
Jackie O and Lady Di
Larry Hagman, Sally Field
And Dolly Parton, me oh my

They're all yours at...
Samson and Delilah's beauty shop
Come on baby, let your long hair drop
Samson and Delilah's beauty shop
Come on pretty baby let your long hair drop
Yeah!

Samson and Delilah's beauty shop
Come on baby, let your long hair drop
Samson and Delilah's beauty shop
Come on pretty baby let your long hair drop
Samson and Delilah's beauty shop
Come on pretty baby let your long hair...

Ah, 1-2-3 drop!

Let it drop
Let it drop
(Samson and Delilah's beauty shop....)
Aawww, let it drop!
