Sir Tom Jones slams Delilah ban for Welsh rugby choir


Not used since 2015, the Welsh Rugby Union took the choice earlier this 12 months for there to be no extra Delilah on the rugby as a result of well-known music’s depiction of home violence and story of a homicide by a jealous lover. However this week a Cardiiff crowd had been listening on because the 1968 hit’s singer Sir Tom Jones slammed the Delilah ban.

Shortly earlier than singing the music, singer Jones informed the gang at Cardiff Fort on Friday that the ban can’t be a barrier to followers singing it.

The group heard singer Jones say: “You’ll be able to’t cease us singing Delilah.

“Are you able to think about… Who was the person who didn’t need us to sing Delilah?

“He stopped the choir from singing however he didn’t cease the gang from singing it.

“And we’ll maintain singing it too.”

Tom Jones hit music Delilah full lyrics

I noticed the sunshine on the evening that I handed by her window
I noticed the flickering shadows of affection on her blind
She was my girl
As she deceived me, I watched and went out of my thoughts

My, my, my, Delilah
Why, why, why, Delilah
I might see, that woman was no good for me
However I used to be misplaced like a slave that no man might free

At daybreak when that man drove away, I used to be ready
I crossed the road to her home and she or he opened the door
She stood there laughing
I felt the knife in my hand and she or he laughed no extra

My, my, my, Delilah
Why, why, why, Delilah
So earlier than they arrive to interrupt down the door
Forgive me Delilah, I simply couldn’t take anymore

She stood there laughing
I felt the knife in my hand and she or he laughed no extra

My, my, my, Delilah
Why, why, why, Delilah
So earlier than they arrive to interrupt down the door
Forgive me, Delilah, I simply couldn’t take anymore
Forgive me, Delilah, I simply couldn’t take anymore
