"One I Want" as written by and Edward/van Halen Van Halen....
Poor man, he just want a little
Rich man, want a little bit more
Superman, he looking for Lois
Salesman, try and sell you his soul
Fat man, he's ordering seconds
Pizza man, just want to slice
Badman, looking for attention
A good man, he's hard to find
Mailman, looking more like your daughter
Straw man, don't have a leg to stand on
Gay man, looking for another
Candy man, yeah the candy man can
Black man, he looking for justice
White man, try to get a tan
Woman, just want to fly in first class
Holy man, take me to the promise 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
Piano man, in the mood for a melody
Strongman, yeah he knows how to cry
Ape man, ain't nobody's uncle
A lucky man don't always know who they are
Dead man, living for tomorrow
Wise man, 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)

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!

    General CommentYeah, this are just "light" lyrics, nothing too deep but they're all just examples illustrating how everyone always wants something.
    This guy just wants her
