Victim-volunteer (Christine Lavin)

He thinks of himself as a victim of love He's not - He's a volunteer He has consistently fallen for all the wrong women Year after year after year And now he blames every woman who has ever kissed him Told him that she loved him and later dismissed him And now he thinks he's a walking victim He's not - He's a volunteer She thinks of herself as a victim of circumstance When she's a volunteer She has placed her life in the hands of every man Fool enough to come near And now she blames anyone who she thinks has used her Emotionally, or mentally abused her She's not a victim running from a persecutor No - She's a volunteer And he thinks of himself as a victim of fate When he just volunteers He has invested his money in well bred astrologers Healers, Psychic Seers And now he blames every tilted constellation Or every negative vibration He's not a victim of UFO infestation He's a volunteer Oh pick the numbers Shake the sticks Read the tea leaves Light the wicks Point the finger Pass the buck Blame it all on lady luck Do you think of yourself as a victim? Or do you volunteer? Do you let somebody else call all of your shots? Do you cower in the corner in fear? Or do you follow because it is easy to do? Do you fool with modern high tech voodoo? Too bad if you're a victim or whatever you do? Don't volunteer Or do you follow because it is easy to do? Do you fool with modern high tech voodoo? Too bad if you're a victim but whatever you do Don't volunteer Why would ya volunteer? Please don't volunteer!
