Ain't Nothing Like the Real Thing Lyrics

Ain't Nothing Like The Real Thing - Angela Bofill

Written by:Nickolas Ashford/Valerie Simpson

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 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 inside a frame

I read your letters when you're not near me

But they don't move me and they don't groove me

Like when I hear your sweet voice whispering in my ear

You should know

 

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 play my game a fantasy

I pretend 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 get together

Together

I got some memories to look back on

And though they help me when you're gone

I'm well aware nothin' can take the place of you 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

 

So glad we got the real thing baby

 

So glad we got the real real thing real thing

Ain't nothing like the real thing baby

 

Ain't nothing like the real thing

 

So glad we got the real thing baby

 

Nothing nothing like the real thing

 

Talk about your hands baby
