in my stead

Recent posting to the List quoted obsolescent usage "in my stead." Reminded
me and maybe some other List members of old, old recording by Lawrence
Tibbett (RCA Victor?) of number from The King's Henchman, libretto by Edna
St. Vincent Millay, music by Deems Taylor? one chorus of which goes
Oh, Caesar, great wert thou
And Julius was thy name,
But I would not stand in thy stead,
For I'd liever be quick than dead.
