i could never take the place of your man lyrics – jordan knight

verse 1
only last june when her old man went 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

b 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

b-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)
