"Conquest" as written by and Corkey Robbins....
Conquest
He was out to make a conquest
Didn't care what harm was done just as long as he won
The prize

Conquest
She was just another conquest
Didn't care whose heart was broke
Love to him was a joke till he looked into her eyes

And then in the strange way things happen
Their roles were reversed from that day
The hunted became the huntress
The hunter became the prey

Conquest
Now you know who made the conquest
She with all her female guile led him helpless down the aisle
She had finally made a conquest

Ah, ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah
Ooo, ooo, ooo

And then in the strange way things happen
Their roles were reversed from that day
The hunted became the huntress
The hunter became the prey

Conquest
Now you know who made the conquest
She with all her female guile led him helpless down the aisle
She had finally made a conquest

Ah, ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah

Conquest

    General Commenti am SO happy they did this song.
    i've been hoping someone would do a great cover of this song and the stripes are the perfect band to do that.

    General CommentThis song is obviously about to people. The cocky man searching for a girl. He obviously thinks he has the upperhand in any relationship and underestimates women.

    Then there's the girl that comes around, the tables are turned. The man is in love with the girl, and has lost the upperhand. They then get married, and the man is left "conquered"

    General CommentJust so everyone knows, this song is a cover. The original is by Corky Robbins and the most famous version is by Patti Page.

    General CommentFirst song I heard on their new album- and within 5 seconds I knew I would like the CD.
    I love how the sound of this song goes along with the album's cover picture.
