"I Could Never Take the Place of Your Man" was the fourth and final single from Prince's 1987 double album, Sign “o” the Times. The track was originally cut in Prince's home studio in 1982. It was brought out of the vault and updated for the unreleased, final album with The Revolution, Dream Factory. At this time, the song had a few seconds of the bluesy coda just before the main guitar solo. It was edited out before Sign “?” the Times.

The song is an upbeat pop number featuring a combination of live drumming with two drum machine patterns[citation needed]. Also featured are two guitar solos, one wild and energetic and one more bluesy and subdued in the full album cut. The song also features small elements of alternative music. The song consists of two verses and two choruses, followed by a lengthy instrumental coda. The lyrics paint the image of a woman seeking a man to replace the one who left, while Prince refuses, saying that she wouldn't be satisfied with a one-night stand. The music and accompanying music video pushed this song to the top 10 in the U.S. The video was pulled from the Sign “?” the Times film, and is a live take of the song and included the horn section of Eric Leeds and Atlanta Bliss.

The live version of "I Could Never Take the Place of Your Man" from the video and Sign “o” the Times film includes a horn solo in the song's coda. The solo lifts a part of the "Camille" and Black Album track, "Rock Hard In a Funky Place".
