Samson was a very mighty man,
He could do anything that dynamite can
He leaned upon the temple and the temple fell
And all the people ran like . . .

(go immediately to chorus!)

My grandad used to play his guitar while we sang the song. I don’t remember much of it except for bits and pieces. Here’s what I do recall: (I’m sorry for the wording as I am aware of how racist it sounds)

First god made the ocean then he made the sky’s,
Then he made the stars to put in little darkies eyes,
(I don’t remember the next two lines)

A walkin’ a walkin’ a walkin’ I say,
Walkin’ to the parlor and I listen to ‘em play,
Walkin’ to the parlor and I listen to ‘em sing,
And I see the darkie’s fingers as he picks upon the strings,

(There was some more stuff and the chorus would repeat a few times)

Salome was a dancer she danced the hoochy cooch,
The king said he liked it very very mooch,
But the Queen said “we’ll have to scandal here!”
“Oops!” Said Salome as she kicked the chandelier.

That’s all I remember.

Old folks young folks everybody come
Join our happy Sunday school and have a lot of fun
Please check your chewing gum and raisins at the door
And we'll tell you Bible stories that you never heard before.

Adam was the first man, Eve she was his spouse
They both got together and started keeping house
All went well until the babies came
Then Eve she started into raising Cain

Danny was a bad boy he wouldn't obey the king
The king said he wouldn't stand for any such a thing
He put him in the lion's den with lions at his feet
But Danny was a dentist and he pulled the lion's teeth

God made Satin, Satin made sin
God made a hot place to keep Satin in
Satin didn't like it and said he wouldn't stay
He's been acting like the devil ever since that day.

These are the only verses I remember from when I was in the second or third grade.
