David: I...
Melvin: Can turn a grey sky blue, uh...
Melvin: I can make it rain,
Whenever I want it to, huh!
Paul: I can build a castle
From a single grain of sand
I can make a ship sail, huh,
On dry land
Dennis: But my life is incomplete
And I'm so blue
'Cause I can't get next to you
David: I can't get next to you
David: Get next to you...
I just can't get next to you
Temptations: I can't get next to you babe,
I can't get next to you, I...
David: Can fly like a bird in the sky
Eddie: Hey, I can buy anything
That money can buy
Temptations: Oh, I...
Melvin: I can turn a river
Into a ragin' fire
Melvin: I can live forever,
If I so desire
Eddie: Unimportant, are all these things
I can do
'Cause I can't get next to you
Temptations: I can't get next to you
Eddie: No matter what I do
Temptations: I can't get next to you, babe
Temptations: Wooo, oooh-oooh
Wooo, oooh-oooh
Chicka boom, chicka boom
Chicka boom-boom-boom
David: I can turn back the hands of time...
You better believe I can
Paul: I can make the seasons change
Just by a wave of my hand
Temptations: Oh, I...
Eddie: I can change anything
From old to new
Paul: The things I want to do the most,
I'm unable to do
David: Unhappy am I
With all the powers I possess
Cause girl, you're the key to my happiness
Temptations: Can't get next to you
'Cause I can't get...
Temptations: Next to you
Dennis: Can't you see these tears
I'm crying, I can't get uh...
Temptations: Next to you
Dennis: Girl, it's you that I need...
I gotta' get...
Temptations: Next to you
Dennis: Can't you see these tears
I'm cryin, I can't get...
Temptations: Next to you
Dennis: I, I, I, I, I can't get now...
Temptations: Next to you
Dennis: Girl, you blowin' my mind
Fade to end
