The Righteous Brothers – Substitute lyrics

Girl
You've been waiting much too long
Now it looks like he's not coming home
Girl
You've been loyal
True and faithful
All this time with being alone

If I could get that same dedication
I'd give you everything in creation
If he doesn't come back
(If he doesn't come back)

I'll be your substitute
Whenever you want me
Don't you know I'll be your substitute
Whenever you need me?

Girl
Every day you waited for him
I've been waiting here for you
And, girl
All this time I've been lonely
I know what you're going through

I realize my chances are slim
But you can't keep relying on him
If he doesn't come back
(If he doesn't come back)

I'll be your substitute
Whenever you want me
Don't you know I'll be your substitute
Whenever you need me?

Each day by your window you sit and cry hoping to see his face
Oh, you might as well forget about him and find someone to take his place
If he doesn't come back
(If he doesn't come back)

I'll be your substitute
Whenever you want me
Don't you know I'll be your substitute
Whenever you need me?

I wanna be your substitute
Whenever you want me
Don't you know I'll be your substitute
Whenever you need me?
