  • (Ain't no woman like the one I've got.)
    (Ain't no woman like the one I've got.)
    (Ain't no woman like the one I've got.)

    Every day the sun comes up around her.
    She can make the birds sing harmony.
    Every drop of rain is glad it found her.
    Heaven must have made her just for me.
    When she smiles so warm and tender,
    A sight for sore eyes to see.

    Oooh, (ain't no woman like the one I've got.)
    Oh, no, they don't come better.
    (To make her happy doesn't take a lot.)
    She don't ask for things, no diamond rings.
    (So together, like a hand in glove.)
    Like pages in a letter.
    (Ain't no woman like the one I love.)

    She can fill me up when it's down I'm goin' (I'm goin').
    Put a little music in my day.
    Wouldn't be surprised if my love keeps growin' (it keeps growin').
    Bigger every minute that she stays away.
    I would kiss the ground she walks on,
    Cause it's my word, my word she'll obey, now.
    Woo-ooh. (Ain't no woman like the one I've got.)
    Well, I kiss the ground she walks on.
    (To make her happy doesn't take a lot.)
    She's a real good friend right to the end.
    (So together like a hand in glove.)
    A lonely man when she's gone.
    (People, ain't no woman like the one I love.)

    Oooh. What a good, good thing I've got.
    She means to me a lot.

    (Ain't no woman like the I've got.)
    No, no, they don't come better.
    (To make her happy doesn't take a lot.)
    She don't ask for things, no diamond rings.
    (So together, like a hand in glove.)
    Like pages in a letter.
    (Ain't no woman like the one I love, people.)

    (Ain't no woman like the one I've got.)
    Well, I kiss the ground she walks on.
    (To make her happy doesn't take a lot.)
    I'm a lonely man when my baby's gone. Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind

  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn February 17th 1973, the Four Tops performed "Ain't No Woman Like the One I Got" on the syndicated TV program 'Soul Train'...
    At the time the song at #46 on Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart; and seven weeks later on April 1st, 1973 it peaked at #4 {for 2 weeks} and spent 15 weeks on the Top 100...
    It reached #2 on Billboard's Soul Singles chart...
    Between 1964 and 1988 the quartet had forty-four Top 100 records; five made the Top 10 with two reaching #1, "I Can't Help Myself" for 2 weeks in 1965 and "Reach Out I'll Be There" for 2 weeks in 1966...
    They just missed having seven Top 10 records when "Still Water (Love)" in 1970 and "When She Was My Girl" in 1981 both peaked at #11...
    On Billboard's R&B/Soul Singles chart they had three #1 and five #2 records.
  • Camille from Toronto, OhI love The Fifth Dimension. I love Friends of Distinction. I don't think they have the same sound. I wish Songfacts would put up some songs by F of D because their few hits songs totally rock and stand the test of time.
  • Clubber Lange from Ocean Gate, Nj"Ill Turn to Stone" is their best hit, it should be on here...
  • John from Nashville, TnThis song was first released as a single in 1972 by Friends of Distinction. This Fifth Dimension knockoff group had a few hit in the late 60s and early seventies ("Grazin' In The Grass", "Going In Circles" and "Love Or Let Me Be Lonely").
  • Kristin from Bessemer, AlEven though this tune was a big hit for the Four Tops after leaving Motown, they also scored another top 10 hit with "Keeper of The Castle" in late 1972.
