XtcStanding In For Joe

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 it's 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...
