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 OK 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 I could 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


La la la oh oh Whoa
Never take the place of your man
That's all I need girl
Is a 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
Sha la la la sha la la
