  • I am the one and only, oh yeah

    Call me, call me by my name or call me by number
    You put me through it
    I'll still be doing it the way I do it
    And yet, you try to make me forget
    Who I really am, don't tell me I know best
    I'm not the same as all the rest

    I am the one and only
    Nobody I'd rather be
    I am the one and only
    You can't take that away from me

    I've been a player in the crowd scene
    A flicker on the big screen
    My soul embraces one more in a million faces
    High hopes and aspirations, and years above my station
    Maybe but all this time I've tried to walk with dignity and pride

    I am the one and only
    Nobody I'd rather be
    I am the one and only
    You can't take that away from me

    I can't wear this uniform without some compromises
    Because you'll find out that we come
    In different shapes and sizes
    No one can be myself like I can
    For this job I'm the best man
    And while this may be true
    You are the one and only you

    I am the one and only
    Nobody I'd rather be
    I am the one and only
    You can't take that away from me

    I am the one and only
    Nobody I'd rather be
    I am the one and only
    You can't take that away from me Writer/s: NIK KERSHAW
