  • I don't look good in no Armani Suits
    No Gucci shoes or designer boots
    I've tried the latest lines from A to Z
    But there's just one thing that looks good on me

    The only thing I want
    The only thing I need
    The only thing I choose
    The only thing that looks good on me is you

    I'm not satisfied with Versace style
    Put those patent leather pants in the circular file
    Sometimes I think I might be lookin' good
    But there's only one thing that fits me like it should

    The only thing I want
    The only thing I need
    The only thing I choose
    The only thing that looks good on me is you

    Ya it's you it could only be you
    Nobody else will ever do
    Ya baby it's you that I stick to
    Ya we stick like glue

    The only thing I want
    The only thing I need
    The only thing I choose
    The only thing that looks good on me is you

    The only thing I want YEAH
    The only thing I need
    The only thing I choose
    The only thing that looks good on me is you

    The only thing I want
    The only thing I need
    The only thing I choose
    The only thing that looks good on me is you

    Oh you

    Yeah yeah you
    The only thing that looks good on me is you
    The only thing I want, the only thing I need oh you Writer/s: Bryan Adams, Robert Lange

  • Ang from Columbus, Oh
    The produces of the 1996 VH1 Fashion Adwards show asked Adams to drop a couple lines from the song, since he was slated to preform the same time the models would be showing off clothing by Versace.

    When Adams preformed the song, some of the models clearly tensed up when he belted out the lines: "I'm not satisfied with Versace style/Put those patent leather pants - in the circular file"
