she said that she'd take it off right here
take it off right now
give him back his ring,
to stay with me
she must think that's what i want to hear
good as it may sound,
i know myself that that can't be

and i didn't feel bad about it till right then
had to remind her that we were just pretend
i said baby i want you,
but he needs you
stay with the real thing
i'll never love you like he'll
see i only want you
baby he needs you
stay with the real thing,
stay with the real thing
stay with your man

here come the tears (here comes the tears)
baby please don't cry (don't cry)
i thought you knew what this was
baby never coulda take the place
of your husband (no)
but we'll always be friends
baby we shouldn't have become lovers

and i didn't feel bad about it till right then
had to remind her that we were just pretend
i said baby i want you,
but he needs you
stay with the real thing
i'll never love you like he'll
see i only want you (only want you)
baby he needs you (he needs you)
stay with the real thing,
baby stay with the real thing
(stay with the real thing)
stay with your man

he's got a love for you forever
why can't you see here with me,
won't be better
cuz i only want you
but he needs you
stay with the real thing
i'll never love you like he'll
see i only want you baby (only want you)
but he needs you (he needs you)
(stay with the real thing)
stay with the real thing,
(stay with the real thing)
stay with the real thing
stay with your man
