Van Halen – One I Want lyrics

(Words by Van Halen)

Poorman, he just want a little
Richman, want a little bit more
Superman, he looking for Lois
Salesman, try and sell you his soul
Fatman, he's ordering seconds
Pizzaman, just wanna slice
Badman, looking for attention
A goodman, he's hard to find

Mailman, looking more like your daughter
Strawman, don't have a leg to stand on
Gayman, looking for another
Candyman, yeah the candyman can
Blackman, he lookin' for justice
Whiteman, tryin' to get a tan
Woman, just wanna fly in first class
Holyman, take me to the promised land

Everyone's looking for something
Wanting their piece of the pie
Searching for their slice of heaven
I gotta have mine, yeah mine

And you're the one I want (the one I want)
The only one I want (the one I want)
Yeah, the one I want (the one I want)
The only one I want (the one I want)

Boogieman, he giving me the creeps
Sandman, kicking mud in your eye
Pianoman, in the mood for a melody
Strongman, yeah he knows how to cry
Apeman, ain't nobody's uncle
A luckyman don't always know who they are
Deadman, living for tomorrow
Wiseman, following a star

Well I ain't saying I'm different
Wanting my pie in the sky
I'm just a little impatient
Until I get mine, yeah mine

And you're the one I want (the one I want)
The only one I want (the one I want)
Yeah, yeah the one I want (the one I want)
The only one I want (the one I want)

(Guitar Solo)

Yeah!
The one I want!
The one I want!

The only one I want (the one I want)
The only one I want (the one I want)
Yeah, yeah the one I want (the one I want)
The only one I want (the one I want)

The only one I want (the one I want)
The only one I want (the one I want)
Yeah, yeah the one I want (want)
The only one I want (want)

Yeah, the one I want (want)
Want! Want! Yeah! Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah!
Hey-hey-hey! Oh!
Yeah!
