Lyrics for Ain't Nothing Like The Real Thing by Marvin Gaye:

Hook: Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell
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

Tammi
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 in a frame

Marvin
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

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

Tammi
I play the game, of fantasy
I pretend but I know in reality
I need the shelter of your arms to comfort me

Marvin and Tammi
No other sound is quite the same as your name
No touch can do half as much
Marvin: To make me feel better
Tammi: So let's stay together

Marvin
I got some memories to look back on
And though they help me when you phone, I'm well aware
Nothing can take your place of being there

Hook
So let me get the real thing
So let me get 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
