I Could Never Take The Place Of Your Man lyrics

It was only last June when her old man ran away
She couldn't stop cryin' cuz she knew he was gone 2 stay
10:35 on a lonely Friday night
She was standin' by the bar ... mmm, she was lookin' alright, yeah

I asked her if she wanted 2 dance
And she said that all she wanted was a good man
And wanted 2 know if I thought I was qualified, yeah

And I said - "Baby, don't waste your time
I know what's on your mind
I may be qualified 4 a one night stand
But I could never take the place of your man"

It hurt me so bad when she told me with tears in her eyes
(Tears in her eyes)
He was all she ever had and now she wanted 2 die
He left her with a baby and another one on the way, yeah
She couldn't stop cryin' cuz she knew he was gone 2 stay, yeah

She asked me if we could be friends
And I said - "Oh honey, baby, that's a dead end
U know and I know that we wouldn't be satisfied, no"

And I said - "Baby, don't waste your time
I know what's on your mind
We wouldn't be satisfied (wouldn't be satisfied) with a one night stand
And I could never take the place of your man"

Yeah, yeah, the place of your man

1 2, 1 2!
