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

Oh, 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

I read your letters when you're not near
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 you know
Ain't nothing like the real thing, baby
Ain't nothing like the real thing

I play the game, a fantasy
I pretend but I'm not 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

I've got some memories to look back on
Though they help me when you phone
I'm well aware nothing can
Take the place of being there

So glad we got the real thing, baby
So glad we got the real thing
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
