"Substitute Lover" as written by and Lindon Roberts....
steadily-diddly really and truly
don't play me no second fiddle
steadily-diddly really and truly
first class love is what I need

She call my name from coast to coast
telling people that she needs me the most
whenever she passes by
she always finds herself with another guy
she will go as far to say that I'm her superstar

But girl, oh girl
I'm not a substitute lover, oh no
Oh girl
Don't take me for no substitute lover, oh no, ooh yeah

Whenever I call you on the telephone
there's someone to say you're not at home
girl you always have an alliby
it seems to me you have another guy
don't pretend that I a love ladder
are you caught up in your rapture?

you see girl, oh girl
don't take me for no substitute lover, oh no
oh girl, oh girl
I'm not a substitute lover, oh no

Get yourself together and change your act
with your behaviour you might get caught in a trap
sometime I wonder if you love is really true
by ya actions little girl, I won't get through

oh girl, oh girl
I'm not a substitute lover, oh no
oh girl, oh girl
don't take me for a substitute lover, oh no

Steadily, readily really and truly
don't play me no second fiddle
steadily readily really and truly
first class love is what I need

She call my name from coast to coast
telling people that she needs me the most
whenever she passes by
she always find herself with another guy
she will go as far to say that I'm her superstar

But girl, oh girl
Don't take me for no substitute lover, oh no
Oh girl, oh girl
I'm not a substitute lover, oh no

Whenever I call you on the telephone
there's someone to say you're not at home
you always have an alliby
it seems to me you have another guy
sometimes I wonder if your love is really true
by your actions little girl, I won't get through

oh girl, oh girl
don't take me for no substitute lover, oh no....(fade)
