I'm standing, standing in for Joe

Joe called round to ask me, Would I do a favor?
While he's gonna be out of town
He says his girl needs company, she gets so restless
Would I keep her safe and sound?

Softly, softly in the night
Why, you can guess the rest...
Now these shoes fit all too well

Standing in for Joe
Standing in for Joe
I'm standing - in for Joe

Joe said we've been friends so long
That I would be the one he would trust with his life
And now those words roll 'round my brain
As darkness falls, as I turn out his bedroom light

Who could resist her tender charms?
So the story goes...
This actor he plays all the parts

Standing in for Joe
Standing in for Joe
I'm standing - in for Joe

Love is like a river,
You cannot stop its flow... Mmm hmm

Joe called round to ask me, Would I do a favor?
While he's gonna be out of town
He says his girl needs company, she gets so restless
Would I check that she's safe and sound?

Softly, softly in the night
Why, you can guess the rest...
Now these shoes fit all too well
Standing in for Joe

I'm standing in for Joe - Oh yeah
I'm standing in for Joe - Keep his sweetheart company, yeah

Standing in for Joe - Just standing in for Joe, yeah
Standing in for Joe - Until he gets back home, yeah
Standing in for Joe - Gonna keep her insane, yeah
Standing in for Joe - Gonna keep her safe and sound, yeah

Standing in for Joe - Keep his sweetheart company, yeah
Standing in for Joe - Almost full time, which is nice, yeah
Standing in for Joe - Because she gets so restless
Standing in for Joe - Always so restless

Standing in for Joe - Keep his sweetheart company, yeah
Standing in for Joe - Gonna keep her safe and sound, yeah
Standing in for Joe - I'm standing in for Joe, yeah...
