Marvin Gaye - Ain't That Peculiar
B.
She’s Got To Be Real

Lyrics:

It happened not long ago, as crazy as it seems
A girl I didn’t even know came to me in my dream
And although I don’t know her name
I was so sorry when the morning came

And I, I, I, I said I
‘Cause I know by the way I feel, she’s got to be real (fa-la-la-la)

Imagine the Mona Lisa mixed with a girl from a Playboy book
Imagine Venus with arms, and then you’ll know how she looks
She’s the prettiest little girl that I’ve ever seen
She comes to me always in my dream

And I, oh I, said I, oh I
‘Cause I know by the way I feel, she’s got to be real (fa-la-la-la)

I told the Sandman, ‘help me if you can, man
Get me her address, and I’ll do the rest’
‘Cause only in my dreams do my arms enfold her
I’m sleeping on my job just so I can hold her

Everywhere I go, I’m searching here and there
And every girl I see, I just have to stop and stare
‘Cause I need her love, both night and day
So I can stop sleeping, sleeping my life away

And I, I said I, oh I, oh I
‘Cause I know by the way I feel, she’s got to be real
(she’s got to be real)
Yeah, she’s got to be real, yeah
‘Cause I know (she’s got to be real)
Yeah, by the way I feel…
