The one and only

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