"I Could Not Take The Place (of Your Man)" as written by and Prince Rogers Nelson....
Verse 1

Only last June when her old man ran away

She couldn't stop crying cause she knew he was gone to stay

10:35 on a lonely Friday night

She was standing by the fire and ooh she was looking alright



be Section

I asked her if she wanted to dance

And she said that

All she wanted was a good man

And wanted to know

If I thought I was qualified



Chorus

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



Verse 2

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 die

He left her with a baby and another one on the way

She couldn't stop crying cause she knew he was gone to stay



be -Section

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



Chorus

And I said baby don't waste your time

I know what's on your mind baby

Wouldn't be satisfied with a one night stand

And I could never take the place of your man



(Chorus out)

    General CommentWhat a great Prince Remake of an awesome classic. Jordan Knight sings it with such passion that it can make anyone swoon.
