Out Of The Strong

As was the custom in Philistine
Samson provided the food and the wine
Thirty companions, a must for the time,
To guest the wedding banquet

"Now I have a riddle," Samson began
"Tell me the answer if you can
Make your replies within the week
To qualify for prizes"

"But if you cannot answer me
The prizes I am naming
Thirty sets of linen garments
Shall be mine from you
Not yours from me"

"Out of the eater something to eat
Out of the strong something sweet"
For three days the people laboured in vain
They could not find the answer

But those deceitful Philistines
Making threats of violence
Pressurised his wife and her family
'til she coaxed the answer out of him

(What is stronger than a lion ?)
(What is sweeter than honey ?)
Out of the eater something to eat (What is stronger than a lion ?)
Out of the strong something sweet (What is sweeter than honey ?)
Out of the eater (What is stronger [If you'd not ploughed
something to eat than a lion ?) with my heifer]
Out of the strong (What is sweeter [You would not have
something sweet than honey ?) found the answer]
Out of the eater (What is stronger [If you'd not ploughed
something to eat than a lion ?) with my heifer]
Out of the strong (What is sweeter [You would not have
something sweet than honey ?) found the answer
