Ain't Nothing Like The Real Thing

In the style of

Marvin Gaye

Tammi Terrell

Lyrics

ooh baby
ain't nothin' like
the real thing baby
ain't nothin' like
the real thing
no no

ain't nothin' like
the real thing baby
ain't nothin' like
the real thing
no honey

i've got your picture
hangin' on the wall
but it can't see
or come to me
when i call
your name

i realize
it's just a picture
in a frame
ooh i read
your letters
when you're
not here

but they don't
move me
and they don't
groove me like
when i hear

your sweet voice
whispering
in my ear
don't ya know

ain't nothin' like
the real thing baby
ain't nothin' like
the real thing
i play my game
of fantasy

i pretend
but i know in reality
i need the shelter
of your arms
to comfort me

no other sound
is quite the same
as your name
no touch can do
half as much

to make me
feel better
so let's
stay together
oh
i've got
the memories

to look back on
though they help
when you're gone
i'm well aware
nothin' can
take the place of
your bein' there
oh

so glad we got
the real thing baby
so glad we got
the real thing

oh marvin oh honey
so glad
ain't nothin' like
the real thing baby
so glad

oh darlin'
ain't nothin' like
the real thing
talk to me

ooh
ain't nothin' like
the real thing baby
oh i'm so glad
ain't nothin' like
the real thing
oh
