"The Way You Do The Things You Do" is a hit soul/rnb single by The Temptations released in 1964 from their Motown album 'Meet The Temptations'. In contrast to the commercial failure of The Temptations' previous seven singles, the song was a huge success. It peaked at #11 on the Billboard Hot 100 and also went to number one on the Cash Box R&B chart. The tune was written by Smokey Robinson and Bobby Rogers of The Miracles, another Motown rnb group.

They were silly in a way, talking about a girl you loved as a candle, a handle, a schoolbook, a cool crook, a broom, a perfume, but, typical Smokey, he made it work. It got a good response whenever we did it live, so our hopes were up. We knew from past experience that even the best tracks don't always click."
