I wanna have dinner with Gershwin
I wanna watch Rembrandt sketch
I wanna talk theory with Curie
Impossible I guess

I wanna talk moods with Picasso
On a rendezvous
I wanna fly double with Earhart
I wanna get next to you
Next to you

So close
Just as close as I can get
The rain of your worry
Can't effect
What I feel is what I feel

One touch
Of your greatness
Is all I need
My circle of fantasy
Would be complete

I wanna sing hymns with Mahalia
When the day is through
I wanna tell you about it
I wanna get next to you
Next to you

So close
Just as close as I can get
The rain of your worry
Can't effect
What I feel is what I feel

One touch
Of your greatness
Is all I need
My circle of fantasy
Would be complete

So close
Just as close as I can get
The rain of your worries
Can't effect
What I feel is what I feel

One touch
Of your greatness
Is all I need
My circle of fantasy
Would be complete

I wanna have dinner with Gershwin
I wanna watch Rembrandt sketch
I wanna talk theory with Curie
I wanna get next to you
Next to you, yeah yeah

I'm gonna get next to you
Come on girl, get on board, I got to go
I wanna get next to you, oh baby
I wanna be, I wanna get next to you
I got to go
I'm gonna get next to you
Come on girl, get on board, I got to go
