“I Could Never Take The Place Of Your Man” by PrinceJuly 18, 2018
“It was only last June when her old man ran away
She couldn’t stop crying ’cause she knew he was gone to stayIt was ten thirty-five on a lonely Friday night
She was standin’ by the bar; she was lookin’ alright, yeahI 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.
He was all she ever had, and now she wanted to dieHe left her with a baby, and another one on the way, yeah
She couldn’t stop cryin’ ’cause she knew he was gone to stayShe asked me if we could be friends, and I said, oh, honey baby that’s a dead endYou 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 with a one night stand.
And I could never take the place of your man, ohYeah, yeah, the place of your man. “
