I'm standing...
Standing in for Joe

Joe called up to ask me
Would I do a favour
While he's gonna be out of town
Said his girl needs company
She gets so restless
Would I keep her safe and sound

Softly softly in the night
Well you can guess the rest
Now these shoes fit all too well
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
Now those words run round my brain
As darkness falls
And 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
I'm standing in for...

Love is like a river
You cannot stop its flow
I'm standing in for Joe
