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

I asked her if she wanted to dance and she said
All she wanted was a good man who wanted to know
If I thought I was qualified

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 can never take the place of your man"

It hurt me so bad when I saw the tears in her eyes
She was all he ever wanted and now she wanted to die
He left her with a baby and another one on the way
She couldn't stop cryin' she knew he was gone to stay

She asked me if we couldn't be friends and I said
Oh, honey, baby, that's okay
You know and I know, know, know
You wouldn't be satisfied

I said "Baby, don't waste your time
And 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"

I may be qualified for a one night stand
But never take the place of your man
I may be qualified for a one night stand
But I could never take the place of your man

Never take the place of your man
That's all I need, girl
One night, one night, one night stand
I don't wanna be like a steak in your mind
Oh, girl, if you need a friend I'm there by your side

Sha la la la
Sha la la la
