"I Can't Get Next to You" as written by and Norman J./strong Whitfield....
Oh I, I can turn a grey sky blue
You see I can make it rain when I want to
Oh yes I, I can build a castle from a single grain of sand
You see I, I can make a ship sail on dry land
Let me say I can fly like a bird in the sky
I can buy anything that money can buy
I can turn a river into a raging flood
I can live forever if I so decide

But I can't get next to you babe
No, I can't get next to you babe
No, I can't get next to you babe
No, I can't get next to you babe

Let me tell you I, I can turn back the hands of time
Oh you better believe I can, oh yes yes
I can make the seasons change just by waving my hand
Let me say I, I can change anything from old to new girl
Oh yes I can
Oh I can do anything that I want to girl
Oh yes indeed

But I'm not happy
Oh no I'm not
With all the powers I possess
'Cause you hold the key
Oh yes, yes, yes
To my happiness

And I can't next to you babe
No, I can't get next to you babe
No, I can't get next to you babe
No, I can't get next to you babe

And I've been working on it
Oh yes I have
Such a long, long time
And I've been thinking about it
Oh yes I have
Such a long, long time
