Tom Jones - Delilah (1968)



TOM JONES - DELILAH

I saw the light on the night that I passed by her window
I saw the flickering shadow of love on her blind
She was my woman
As she deceived me I watched and went out of my mind

My my my Delilah
Why why why Delilah
I could see, that girl was no good for me
But I was lost like a slave that no man could free

At break of day when that man drove away I was waiting
I crossed the street to her house and she opened the door
She stood there laughing
I felt the knife in my hand and she laughed no more

My my my Delilah
Why why why Delilah
So before they come to break down the door
Forgive me Delilah I just couldn't take any more
Forgive me Delilah I just couldn't take any more

1. The Heading: It consists of the sender’s address and the date on the last line. Generally there should be a one line gap for the address and date.There is no need to write the return address if letterhead of the company is used for this purpose.

2. The Receiver’s Address: Write receiver’s address clearly and completely.
There is a general rule that one line should be skipped between date and address line.

3. Salutation: It deals with how one addresses the receiver of the letter. In a business letter it has to be formal.

It starts with the word "Dear" and often includes the person's last name.

4. The Body: The body carries important details in detail. The language used should be lucid and courteous.
For each paragraph, one line should be skipped.
Also skip a line between the greeting and the body. Skip a line between the body and the close.

5. The Complimentary Close: This brief expression usually ends with a comma.

6. The Signature: Skip two lines and write your name and just above the signature should be done.
