"I Could Never Take the Place of Your Man" as written by and Prince Rogers Nelson....
It was only last June when her old man ran away
She couldn't stop crying because she knew he was gone to stay
10:35 on a lonely Friday night
She was standin' by the bar
Mmm, she was lookin' all right, yeah

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, 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 die
He left her with a baby and another one on the way, yeah
She couldn't stop cryin'
Because she knew he was gone to stay, yeah

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

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
The place of your man
