How Can I Delay Loading an External Javascript?

Hi everyone, I have an external .js file that I need to load on a website. I have no control over the file itself, just the ability to call it into a webpage.

I am currently using the following code.
<script src="http://externalsite.com/file.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

Open in new window


I would like to be able to delay that by say 10 seconds from running. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!

setTimeout('loadit();', 10000);
function loadit() {
  s = document.createElement('script');
  s.src="http://externalsite.com/file.js";
  document.getElementsByTagName('body')[0].appendChild(s);
}
