Never Take the Place of Your Man
Goo Goo Dolls Lyrics


It was only last year,
When her old man ran away,
She couldn't stop cryin',
She knew he was gonna stay,
10:35 on a lonely Friday night,
She was standin' by the fire
Ooo she was lookin' alright!

I asked if she wanted to dance, and she said,
"All she wanted was good man who wanted to know,
If I thought I was quite a find",
I said "Baby, don't waste your time"
"I know whats on your mind!"
"I may be quite a find, for a one night stand,
But I could never take the place of your man!"

Perky saw a band when i saw what were tears in her eyes,
She was only ever woman, and now she wanted to die,
He looked at her with a baby, and another one on the way,
She couldn't stop cryin', she knew he was gonna stay.

She asked if we couldn't be friends and i said
"Oh, honey, baby, thats okay, you know and i know know know,
You wouldn't be satisfied!"
I said "Baby, don't waste your time, i know whats on your mind",
"I may be quite a find for a one night stand, but i could
Never take the place of your man!"

"I may be quite a find for a one night stand,
Never take the place of your man!"
"I may be quite a find for a one night stand,
But I could never take the place, of your maaaaaaaaaannnnnn!"

Fantastic cover of a great song by the legendary Prince. Still my favorite GGD album.

+Manny Rodrigues Phuck yeah. Great GGD album.

I gotta say, they really do this one justice. Aside from the first album, I’ve never been much of a GGD’s fan, but this a great cover.
