Prince I Could Never Take the Place of Your Man 1987

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

Yeah, yeah, the place of your man
