Ain't nothing like the real thing, baby. Ain't nothing like the real thing.
Ain't nothing like the real thing, baby. Ain't nothing like the real thing.

I got your picture hanging on my wall but it can't sing, or come to me -
     when I call your name.  I realized it's just a picture in a frame.
I read your letters but you're not here.  They don't move me, 
they don't prove it like when I hear your sweet voice whispering in my ear.

I play my games of fantasy. I've been down. I don't see reality.
I need the shelter of your arms to comfort me
I got some memories to look back on, though they help me when you're gone
I'm well aware nothing can take the place of you being there.

No other sound - is quite the same as your name.
No touch can do half as much - to make me feel better.
Let's stay together. Ah, ah. Ooh.

Ain't nothing like the real  thing, ba-by. Ain't nothing like the real thing.
So glad we got the real thing, ba-by. So glad we got the real thing.
