Dean Martin – Ain't Nothing Like The Real Thing lyrics

(CHORUS)
Ain't nothing like the real thing, baby
Ain't nothing like the real thing, no no
Ain't nothing like the real thing, baby
Ain't nothing like the real thing, oh honey

I've got your picture hanging 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 here
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, no no

I play my game of fantasy
And I pretend that 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 the memories
To look back on and though
They help me when you're gone
I'm well aware, nothing can
Take the place of your being there

So glad we've got the real thing, baby
So glad we've got the real thing, oh darling
Ain't nothing like the real thing, baby
Ain't nothing like the real thing

Tell, tell me
Ain't nothing like the real thing, baby
Ain't nothing like the real thing
