Ain't Nothing Like The Real Thing - Lyrics

Ainít nothing like the real thing, baby
Ainít nothing like the real thing, no, no
Ainít nothing like the real thing, baby
(Ainít nothing)
Ainít nothing like the real thing

Ooh, Iíve got your picture
Hanging on the wall
But it canít see or come to me
When I call your name
(When I call your name)
I realize itís just a picture in a frame

I read your letters
When youíre not near
But they donít move me
And they donít groove me
Like when I hear
(When I hear your voice)
Your sweet voice
Whispering in my ear
(In my ear)

No other sound is quite the same
As your name
(Quite the same as your name)
Your touch can do half this much
To make me feel better
So letís stay together

Ooh, I got memories to look back on
Though they help when youíre gone
Iím well aware
(Iím well aware)
Nothing can take the place of your being there
(Being there)

Ainít nothing like the real thing, baby
(Ainít nothing)
Ainít nothing like the real thing
Ooh, baby
Ainít nothing like the real thing, baby
(Ainít nothing)
Ainít nothing like the real thing

Ooh, baby
Ainít nothing like the real thing, baby
Ainít nothing like the real thing
