I Could Never Take The Place Of Your Man

about

I LOVE Prince's original version of this song of course. But they lyrics are so sad and I always wanted to hear him do a sad arrangement of this song.

So I did one myself. This was actually recorded back in 2006 I believe. Released for awhile but the licensing wasn't done correctly. Now it's all legal. :)

lyrics

It was only last June when her old man ran away
She couldn't stop crying cuz she knew he was gone to stay
10:35 on a lonely Friday night
She was standing by the bar, mmm, she was looking alright
I asked her if she wanted to dance and she said that
All she wanted was a good man
Wanted to know
If I thought I was qualified

And I said, baby don't waste your time
I know what's on your mind, yeah
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
And she couldn't stop cryin' 'cause she knew he was gone to stay

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, yeah
And I said, baby stop wasting your time
I know what's on your mind, yeah
I won't be satisfied
With a one night stand
I can never take the place of your man
