I Can turn the grayest sky blue
I can make it rain, whenever I want it to, oh I
I can build a castle from a single grain of sand
I can make a ship sail, huh, on dry land

But my life is incomplete and I’m so blue
‘Cause I can’t get next to you
I can’t get next to you, babe (next to you)
I can’t get next to you (I just can’t get next you)
I can’t get next to you, babe
I can’t get next to you

I Can fly like a bird in the sky
and I can buy anything that money can’t buy
Oh, I can turn a river into a raging fire
I can live forever if I so desired

Unimportant are all the things I can do
‘Cause I can’t get next to you
I can’t get next to you, babe (no matter what I do)
I can’t get next to you
Uh-ya

Ooo-ooo Ooo-ooo
Chica boom, chica boom
Chica boom, boom, boom

I can turn back the hands of time, you better believe I can
I can make the seasons change, just by waving my hand
Oh, I can change anything from old to new
The things I want to do the most, I’m unable to do

Unhappy am I with all the powers I possess
‘Cause girl you’re the key to my happiness

And I, I… whoa I…
Can’t get next to YOU!

Girl, you’re blowing my mind ’cause I can’t get (next to you)
Can’t you see these tears I’m crying? I can’t get (next to you)
Girl, it’s you that I need, I gotta get (next to you)
Can’t you see these tears I’m crying? I can’t get (next to you)
Ah, Ah, Ah, Ah, I can’t get (next to you)
Ah, Ah, Ah, Ah, I can’t get (next to you)
Girl, you’re blowing my mind

The Temptations Album Cover“I Can’t Get Next to You” is a 1969 number-one single recorded by The Temptations and written by Norman Whitfield and Barrett Strong for the Gordy (Motown) label. The song was a number-one single on the Billboard Top Pop Singles chart for two weeks in 1969, from October 18 to October 25, replacing “Sugar, Sugar” by The Archies and replaced by “Suspicious Minds” by Elvis Presley. The single was also a number-one hit on the Billboard Top R&B Singles for five weeks,[1] from October 4 to November 1, replacing “Oh, What a Night” by The Dells, and replaced by another Motown song, “Baby I’m For Real” by The Originals.

The single was the second of the Temptations’ four number-one hits on the United States pop charts, and was also one of the best-selling singles the group released. Billboard ranked it as the No. 3 song for 1969.

The applause that starts the song, which is cut short by Dennis Edwards’ spoken “Hold it, hold it, listen” line, was sampled in another Temptations song “Psychedelic Shack.”
