ClassicTuesdays: Candi Stanton- Victim

Candi Staton is an American soul and gospel singer, best known for her 1970 remake of Tammy Wynette's "Stand By Your Man" and her 1976 disco hit "Young Hearts Run Free". In 2007, Staton was inducted into the Christian Music Hall of Fame.


When I started out It was just a matter of seeing you everyday

 I looked forward to the times
When you would come my way oh yes
 I longed just to see you Wore a smile just to greet you
 I'm a victim of the very song I sing
You gave me a brand new reason
To start fixing up my face Having cocktails at your favorite place
A table just for two Got rid of loneliness
 Now that I have you I became a victim Of the very song I sing
 I told you young hearts run free
When I didn't listen to myself
 Engulfed by the power of love I just fell right in, right on in
Wasn't hardly worried about tomorrow
You're the future As long as I was being satisfied
 I didn't need nothing else And now already
 I'm being left at home I wonder what it is that
Makes a man leave a girl so all alone
Another woman is the thing
Running around It just don't seem to change
 Victim, victim, victim, victim I'm a victim of the very song
 I sing Why don't you practice what you preach? T
hat's what everybody's telling me If my advice is
 good for others It's good to be good for me
So I try to occupy my mind
 Keep myself busy all the time But the more
I try to do The more I keep thinking of you
 Oh well I guess I'll end up in the
lost and found Looks like love and me
We done fought another round
Another woman is his claim to fame
And I'm lucky if I can Break these chains Victim, victim, victim, victim I'm a victim of the very song I sing

Help me say Do, do, wap Oh! oh! do, do wap
Help me say
Do, do, wap
Oh! oh! do, do wap
Oh! oh! do, do wap
Oooooo

Help me say
Do, do wap
Oh! oh! do, do wap
Oh! oh! do, do wap
Oooooo
