"I Can't Get Next to You" as written by Barrett Strong and Norman J. Whitfield....
I, oh I, I can turn a gray sky blue
Oh I, you see, I can make it rain when I want it to
I can build a castle with a single grain of sand
Oh I, you see, I can make a ship sail on dry land

Ain't happy with the powers I possess
You're the key to my happiness

And I can't get next to you, baby
Can't get next to you
I can't get next to you, baby
Can't get next to you

I, oh I, I can fly like a bird in the sky
Oh I, I can buy anything that money can buy
I can turn a river into a raging flood
Oh I live forever if I so decide

Ain't happy with the powers I possess
You're the key to my happiness

And I can't get next to you, baby
Can't get next to you
I can't get next to you, baby
Can't get next to you

I, I can turn back the hands of time
You better believe I can
Oh I, I can make the seasons change
Just by waving my hand

I, I can change anything I want
From old to new
Oh I, all the things I want to do the most
I'm unable to do

Unimportant, all these powers I possess
You're the key to my happiness

And I can't get next to you, baby
Can't get next to you
Can't get next to you, baby
Can't get next to you

Can't get next to you, baby
Can't get next to you
Can't get next to you, baby
Can't get next to you
