Hey, there baby let your long hair drop
Samson and Delilah's beauty shop
Hey, there baby let your long hair drop

Well I'ma gonna ease your mind
Tell you where to find the best salon
Oh, past the local liquor store
Quarter of a mile beyond
They begin to a-whirlin' and a-curlin'
And a-twirlin' your hair, oh... o my
You can be believin' you'll be happy when
You're leavin' from there
Oh ya

Samson and Delilah's beauty shop
Hey there baby let your long hair drop
Samson and Delilah's beauty shop
I said hey there baby let your long hair drop

Donna gonna graduate
An' Katie's got a date all right
Oh, yes indeed they guarantee
They're gonna look their best tonight
If you make appointments early
And they'll never leave you in no lurch
Oh, yes indeed they guarantee
You're lookin' mighty nice for church
C'mon

Samson and Delilah's beauty shop
Hey there baby let your long hair drop
Samson and Delilah's beauty shop
Hey baby let your long hair drop
Drop

(Instrumental Interlude)
Aw...
Oh, let it drop

Say, Mrs. Hayes highest praise
Is something very hard to win
She won't show her face
In anybody else's place again
Well a while ago Mr. Cole
Would never even step inside
But now you know it's even so
He even gets his gray hair dyed
Where?
Right down at

Samson and Delilah's beauty shop
Hey there baby let your long hair drop
Samson and Delilah's beauty shop
Baby let your long hair drop
Drop

(Instrumental Interlude)
Drop

You sittin' and contemplatin'
Waitin' on your hair to dry
Readin' magazines about
The people in the public eye (yeah baby)
Well, Johnny Carson, Richard Burton
Jackie O and Lady Di (Iii... i, why... i... i)
Larry Hageman, Sally Field
And Dolly Parton, me oh my
It's all yours at

Samson and Delilah's beauty shop
Hey, there baby let your long hair drop
Samson and Delilah's beauty shop
I said, hey there baby let your long hair drop
Said, Samson and Delilah's beauty shop
Baby let your long hair drop
Samson and Delilah's beauty shop
Hey, there baby let your long... hair...

Ah, 1, 2, 3, 4 drop,
C'mon and drop,
Yeah c'mon and drop,
Drop, drop, ah drop,
I said yeah

Let it drop,
Drop.
