Beutiful Delilah
Chuck Berry Lyrics

Beautiful Delilah, sweet as apple pie
Always gets a second look from fellas passin' by
Everytime I see her she's with a different guy
Beautiful Delilah, that's the reason why
Rebecca don't allow me to 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 and mild
Maybe you will settle down and marry after a while

Beautiful Delilah bathin' in the sun
Audience of seventeen, and notice not a one
Local Casanova
Wouldn't be outdone
Let her steal his heart away and break it just for fun

Just finished a biography of Ray Davies. Yes they did cover this song. But to my knowledge, they only covered it live and only during
their early performances. I don't think they actually ever recorded it. And they dropped it when they became superstars.
However, I'm open to correction on these points.

KInks recorded it:


OK. Thanks for that clarification.
