It was only last June when her old man ran away
She couldn't stop crying, she knew he was gone to stay
Ten thirty-five on a lonely Friday night
She was standing by the fire, mmm she was lookin' alright

I asked if she wanted to dance and she said
All she wanted was a good man
And 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 could never take the place of your man"

It hurt me so bad when I saw were 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 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
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
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!
