[Other Sport] Delilah OUT


Jan 19, 2018
Mid mid mid Sussex
The writers left out the bit 'Lulling Samson to sleep in her lap, Delilah alerted the Philistine rulers who waited in the shadows to capture him. They sheared Samson's hair and, in his newly weakened state, bound him, gouged out his eyes, and forced him to grind grain in the prison at Gaza'. Can't imagine why!
Well, "Gaza" is a bit of a difficult one to rhyme, and the less said about the scansion, the better...

The Manifestation of Moribund

'So before, they come to break down the door, forgive me PC crew I just had to sing it once more...'

The Astral Planes, man...
It's an odd song really, if you lsten to the lyrics. You won't stop fanss singing it (it will die out naturally in time), but can see the case for not having an official choir belting out a song about extreme domestic violence.

You obviosuly won't stop 'sweet chariot' either but does nobody else think its a bit weird to hear thousands of jolly-yah rugger buggers singing a song asking death to take them as a relief from the misery of slavery?

Oh and while I am at it -'baby it's cold outside' ... how CREEPY is that song?

Just observations - not demanding censorship or 'cancellation' btw. You think all this stuff is fine? Crack on.

Rugger buggers have a version with hand gestures, with each time you sign it, you sing less of the words until you just do the hand gestures in the final version.

At least that's what we did at school many years ago!

Unintentionally, this could be good news for me.

As I loath the song.

Next stop, Sweet Caroline, please let there be something that offends Woke thinking in it.
Oh glory, glory hallelujah! - let that happen! I'll even volunteer to go woke myself (for the few minutes until the deal's done, anyway!)

Presumably Swing Low will be next then?
I hate that flippin'song... there is something particularly nauseating about thousands of affluent Chartered Surveyors and accountants who live in Epsom and Surbiton singing a song revived and popularised by the black Civil Rights movement
