I've gotta leave you at home Delilah
This is Samson-ite
Damn, there’s a lot in these bars:
Sam(p)son and Delilah, the biblical couple from the Old Testament. Read about their exploits in The Book of Judges.
The story revolves around Samson, a man endowed with superhuman strength which was his, so long as he refrained from cutting his hair. Delilah tricks him and does this while he sleeps.
-By mentioning Samson, Sway cleverly creates a link between his earlier bars about shaving and razors.
-Sway also is referring to the Samsonite Corporation who are a successful luggage company.
-It also refers to the fact that he’s off to do a ‘man’s job’ making it “Samson-ite”, which is why he must leave his ‘Delilah’ at home.
–“Samson’s night”/ “travel light”, Sway mixe it up with the wordplay.
I think we can all agree Sway went in, UK stand up.
