"The Only One" as written by William Frederick Durst, John Everett Otto, Samuel Robert Rivers and Michael W. Smith....
Hold up you're movin' too fast
I'm up for something that lasts
I ain't looking to screw on the first night
Cause that's a no go
And if the vibe's good, go to first base
'Cause the first kiss could be your last taste
I ain't looking to screw 'till the vibe's right

See I'm the only one you know
That can put you on cruise control
Yeah I'm the only one you'll find
That won't waste all my time, on nothing
Nothing, on nothing, nothing

My will is stronger than most
I will not let you get close
Until i think that you deserve me
'Cause that's a no go
I'm gonna hold out, so in the meantime
Don't expect much from a strong mind
Until i think that you deserve me

See I'm the only one you know
That can put you on cruise control
Yeah I'm the only one you'll find
That won't waste all my time, on nothing
Nothing, on nothing, nothing

I'm holdin' out, I'm gonna wait
want to make it past the first date
A little time then we can do
All them nasty things you want to do
Don't get me wrong just take my hand
And I really hope you understand that
It's easier when every second counts
So we'll just have to wait
It's really no big deal
It's really no big deal
I'd hate to get you in bed
Find out your empty instead
No need to knock another home run out
'Cause that's a no go
And I hate to be so filthy
If we were not meant to be
No need to knock another homerun out

See I'm the only one you know
That can put you on cruise control
Yeah I'm the only one you'll find
That won't waste all my time, on nothing
Nothing, on nothing, nothing

Nothin', on nothin', nothin'
On nothin', on nothin

    General CommentI can't tell if they're being sarcastic and speaking like a woman or not with this song. I'd like to think its a common sense way to approach an adult relationship today.

    Get with some chick, get to know her, have a good time, continue being yourself and if it seems like a good thing then DO your thing. Otherwise, kick her to the curb and don't compromise who you are in the process (a little self-respect).

    No big deal either way.
