Say
Youve been waiting much too long now
Dont know when shes coming home
Say now
Youve been loyal true and faithful
All this time of being alone

If I could get that same dedication
Id give you everything in creation
If she doesnt come back
(Come back, come back)
Ooh, Ill be your substitute whenever you want me

Oh, dont you know Id be your substitute
Whenever you need me
Ooh ooh ooh
Send my love and admiration straight to you

Say
(Say)
Everyday you waited for her
Ive been waiting here for you
Say
(Say)
All this time Ive been lonely knowing
What youre going through

I waited til my chances occurred
Cause you cant keep relying on her
If she doesnt come back
(If she doesnt come back)
Ill be your substitute whenever you want me
(Ooh ooh)

Oh, dont you know Id be your substitute
Whenever you need me
Ooh ooh ooh

Each day by your window, you sit and sigh, hoping to see her face
Well, you might as well forget about her
And find someone to take her place
Ill be your substitute whenever you want me
(Ooh ooh)

Oh, dont you know Id be your substitute
Whenever you need me
Ooh ooh ooh
Ill be your substitute
Whenever you want me
(Ooh ooh)

Oh, dont you know Id be your substitute
Whenever you need me
Ooh ooh ooh
Ill be your substitute whenever you leave her
Oh, dont you know Id be your substitute
