I,
Oh I,
Can turn a gray 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
You see, I can make a ship sail on dry land.
Ain't happy am I with all the powers that I possess,
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
I don't know what to do
Oooooo
Let me say,
I,
I can fly like a bird in the sky
I can buy anything that money can buy
Oh I,
Can turn a river into a raging fire
I can live forever if I so desire
Ain't happy am I with all the powers that I possess,
Oh, 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
[solo]
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...
Whooooo...
I,
I've been working on it baby
I've been thinking about it you see,
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
Mmmmmm...
