"I Can't Get Next To You" Lyrics

/ 5
Song updated, review now!
I, oh I can turn a grey sky blue
You see I can make it rain when I want it to
Oh I can build a castle from a single grain of sand
(I) you see I can make a ship sail on dry land

Ain't happy am I with all the powers that I possess (yeah)
Girl, you're the key to my happiness
And I can't get next to you, babe
(Can't get next to you) I've been trying a long time
(Can't get next to you) I don't know what to do

I, oh I

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

Ain't happy am I with all the powers that I possess, hirl
Cause you're the key cause
I can't get next to you, babe
Can't get next to you
I've been trying for such a long time

Let me tell you that I
I can turn back the hands of time, you better believe I can
(Oh I) you see, 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 I) All the things I want to do the most
You see, I'm unable to do

Unimportant, all these things that I'm trying to do
The other day, girl, you see
I can't get next to you, baby
can't get next to you
I've been tryin a long time...
oh if somebody'd only help me...
oh, let me, let me go...

(I) I've been working on it, baby
I've been thinking about it you see,
(Oh I) I've been trying to call you all day long
But, you see, I don't have your phone number, honey
I, I've been thinking about you baby something awful
You see, sometime I feel like I want to moan about it
And I just don't know what to say
And I say
