I Could Never Take the Place of Your Man (Prince Cover)

lyrics

It was only last June
When her old man ran away
She couldn't stop crying
'Cause she knew he was gone 2 stay

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

I asked if she wanted 2 dance
And she said 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
She couldn't stop cryin'
Cause she knew he was gone 2 stay

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
U wouldn't be satisfied (Wouldn't be satisfied)
With a one night stand

And I could never take the place of your man
