Jill Scott – One Time lyrics
Both:
Never in my wildest days did I think I'd find someone like you
I like your style, you're swift, you're agile,
Everything about ya stays true

Jill:
You stood before the sun
Almost struck me blind,
You're so damn fine...

Eric:
Thank you baby
And I know that you are meant to be with me
Part o' my design

Jill:
One time

Eric:
You be the salt, I'll be your peppa
Give you flava foreva
Leave ya never
Don't you know, girl, I'm down for whateva

Jill:
You'll be my lemon, I'll be your tea,
Pure and naturally,
You'll be my leaf, I'll be your tree,
Your very definition of real.

Both:
Since you been goin' my way
Things have been goin' my way
Saturday Sunday Monday to Friday
I'm so happy you just make me wanna say to ya baby

Never in my wildest days did I think I'd find someone like you
I like your style, you're swift, you're agile
Everything about ya stays true

Eric:
You appear'd before the sun
Almost struck me blind
You're so damn fine

Jill:
Thank you
And I know that you're meant to be with me
Part o' my design

Eric:
One time

Jill:
Like cognate as to function
You're my and, but or, or conjunction
In the cadillac with the trunk bumpin'
Always down for somethin' somethin' somethin'

Eric:
You'll be my feather, I'll be you wings
Goin' to fly things
Shinin' like some diamond rings
Enjoyin' what happiness brings

Both:
Since you been goin' my way
Things have been goin' my way
Saturday Sunday Monday to Friday
I'm so happy you just make me wanna say to ya baby

Never in my wildest days did I dream to find someone like you
I like your style, you're swift, you're agile
Everything about ya stays true

Jill:
You stood before the sun
Almost struck me blind
You're so damn fine

Eric:
Thank you to the girl who needs to be with me
Part o' my design

Jill:
One time

Both:
Never in my wildest days did I think I'd find someone like you
I like your style, you're swift, you're agile
Everything about ya stays true

Eric:
You appeared before the sun
Almost made me blind
You're so damn fine

Jill:
Thank you
And I know that you were meant to be with me
Part o' God's design

Eric:
One time

Jill
One time

Repeat four times

Never in my wildest days did I dream to find someone like you
I like your style you're swift you're agile
Everything about ya stays true

Repeat twice
