It was only last year,
when her old man ran away,
She couldn't stop cryin',
she knew he was gonna stay,
10:35 on a lonely Friday night,
She was standin' by the fire
Ooo she was lookin' alright!

I asked if she wanted to dance, and she said
"all she wanted was good man who wanted to know,
if i thought i was quite a find",
I said "Baby, don't waste your time"
"I know whats on your mind!"
"I may be quite a find, for a one night stand,
but I could never take the place of your man!"

Perky saw a band when i saw what were tears in her eyes,
She was only ever woman, and now she wanted to die,
He looked at her with a baby, and another one on the way,
She couldn't stop cryin', she knew he was gonna stay.

She asked if we couldn't be friends and i said
"Oh, honey, baby, thats okay, you know and i know know know,
you wouldn't be satisfied!"
I said "Baby, don't waste your time, i know whats on your mind",
"I may be quite a find for a one night stand, but i could
Never take the place of your man!"

(Guitar Solo)

"I may be quite a find for a one night stand,
never take the place of your man!"
"I may be quite a find for a one night stand,
but i could never take the place, of your maaaaaaaaaannnnnn!"

(Ending Drums)
