The One Lyrics

Uh huh (one)
It's another (one)
I am the (one)
Darkchild, Mary (one)

Them other girl you'd one been wit'
None of 'em got nothin on me
Ain't got my style, they ain't got
Nothin' on me! Nothin' on me!
Way I walk, way I talk, my swagga
Look around, every dude wanna have her
I ain't sayin' that I'm the best, but I'm the best
Hey baby, you need that

Stop lookin' for, lookin' for, (stop, stop) I'm the (one!)
Stop lookin' for, lookin' for, (stop, stop) I'm the (one!)
Stop lookin' for, lookin' for, (stop, stop) I'm the (one!)
On one
Stop lookin' for, lookin' for, (stop, stop) I'm the (one!)
Stop lookin' for, lookin' for, (stop, stop) I'm the (one!)
Stop lookin' for, lookin' for, (stop, stop) I'm the (one!)
On one, yea, I'm that
Boy, don't you know I'm the one? Yea, I'm that
Boy, don't you know I'm the one? Yea, I'm that
Boy, don't you know I'm the one? Yea, I'm her
Boy, don't you know I'm the one? Yea, I'm her

Lemme break it down if you don't get it
Quality, I'm custom fitted
I'mma say it again, they ain't got
Nothin' on me! Nothin' on me! (one!)
Way I walk, way I talk, my swagga
Boy, you know every boss wanna have her
I ain't sayin' that I'm the best, but I'm the best
Hey baby, you need that

Stop lookin' for, lookin' for, (stop, stop) I'm the (one!)
Stop lookin' for, lookin' for, (stop, stop) I'm the (one!)
Stop lookin' for, lookin' for, (stop, stop) I'm the (one!)
On one
Stop lookin' for, lookin' for, (stop, stop) I'm the (one!)
Stop lookin' for, lookin' for, (stop, stop) I'm the (one!)
Stop lookin' for, lookin' for, (stop, stop) I'm the (one!)
On one, yea, I'm that
Boy, don't you know I'm the one? Yea, I'm that
Boy, don't you know I'm the one? Yea, I'm that
Boy, don't you know I'm the one? Yea, I'm her
Boy, don't you know I'm the one? Yea, I'm her

Uh oh
Okay, I got these girls quite hype
Only thing on right now like a nightlight
While my brother Wayne rockin' out like a White Stripe
I'mma kill the game, I'm the Young Money white knight
Yeah, plus I'm lookin' for the right type
Cautious of a flood so I always lay the right pipe
West put me on the marquee flight life
Plus I go hard for the woman that I might wife
I put the ring on her index finger
So if you wanna keep ya girl please don't bring her
I bet I'm the type of guy that she got a thing for
And you would block me, but this ain't Jenga
Yeah, and she's someone I would work with
That's what I can tell from what she's showin' on the surface
I ain't sayin I'm requestin' anyone that's perfect
But I just need a woman that'll make it all worth it

Stop lookin' for, lookin' for, (stop, stop) I'm the (one!)
Stop lookin' for, lookin' for, (stop, stop) I'm the (one!)
Stop lookin' for, lookin' for, (stop, stop) I'm the (one!)
On one
Stop lookin' for, lookin' for, (stop, stop) I'm the (one!)
Stop lookin' for, lookin' for, (stop, stop) I'm the (one!)
Stop lookin' for, lookin' for, (stop, stop) I'm the (one!)
On one, yea, I'm that
Boy, don't you know I'm the one? Yea, I'm that
Boy, don't you know I'm the one? Yea, I'm that
Boy, don't you know I'm the one? Yea, I'm her
Boy, don't you know I'm the one? Yea, I'm her

Na, na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na
It's that na, na, na, na, na
It's that na, na, na, na, na
I'm the one one one one (one)
I'm the one (one) one (one) one
(Oh, y'all ain't ready of this one)
(Y'all ain't ready for this one!)
I'm the one one one one one
Woo! Another one, Rodney
That's girl's number one, finally standing up for herself sayin'
She's the one
