I Could Never Take The Place Of Your Man ( LP Version) (LP Version)

Prince

It was only last June
When her old man ran away
She couldn't stop crying
Cause she knew he was gone to stay

It was 10:35 on a lonely Friday night
She was standin' by the bar
She was lookin' alright, yeah

I asked if she wanted to dance
And she said all she wanted was a good man
And wanted to 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 for 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 to die

He left her with a baby
And another one on the way
She couldn't stop cryin'
Cause she knew he was gone to stay

She asked me if we could be friends
And I said, oh, honey baby that's a dead end
You 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
You 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
