Aww Garsh: Love Songs for Valentine's Day #38



Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell - Ain't Nothing Like the Real Thing


There ain't nothing
Like the real thing, baby
There ain't nothing like the real thing
There ain't nothing
Like the real thing, baby
There ain't nothing like the real thing
I see your picture
Hanging on the wall
But it can't sing or come to me
When I call your name
I realize it's just
A picture in a frame
And I read your letters
When you're not here
They don't move me
They don't groove me
Like when I hear your sweet voice
Whispering in my ear
There ain't nothing
Like the real thing, baby
There ain't nothing like the real thing
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
Together, baby, together, yeah
Together, together
I got some memories to look back on
And though they help when you phone
I'm well
