Words and music by rick nielsen
I'm lookin' out for number one, yeah
I'm lookin' out for number one
Work and slave, sometimes succeed
I'm lookin' out for number one

I got hot but never got burned
Well all I know is she should have learned
Get too close you'll fall right in
You should have known, you can't do that now

I see what's goin' on
I've known it all along
I've seen what's goin' on

I'm lookin' out for number one, yeah
I'm lookin' out for number one
Work and slave, sometimes succeed
I'm lookin' out for number one

When I'm hot she says she's not
Don't get too close, she's over the top
Think by now, well, I would have learned
She's all talk, I really got burned now

I see what's goin' on
I've known it all along
I've seen what's goin' on
I'm lookin' out for number one, yeah
I'm lookin' out for number one
Work and slave, sometimes succeed
I'm lookin' out for number one

I'm lookin' out for number one, yeah
I'm lookin' out for number one
Work and slave, sometimes succeed
I'm lookin' out for number one, yeah, oh yeah

(repeat to coda)
