The Hunter Gets Captured by the Game

The Hunter Gets Captured by the Game

"The Hunter Gets Captured by the Game" is a 1967 single by Motown Records girl group The Marvelettes, from their self-titled album of the same year. It was written by Smokey Robinson of The Miracles, and reached number two on the Billboard R&B chart and number 13 on the Hot 100. The song's general message was to a lover. In the song, lead singer Wanda Young-Rogers (wife of Miracles member Bobby Rogers) talks about how she had been stalking and preying on her lover, in search of his "ways and habits" so she could master a plan on how to catch him. But soon, everything goes wrong when she is caught by her own trap.
