"You're The One I Want" as written by and John Farrar....
I've got chills,
They're multiplying.
And I'm losing self-control.
'Cause the power your supplying,
Its electrifying.

You better shape up,
'Cause you're the only one,
And my heart is set on you
You better shape up,
You better understand,
To my heart I must be true.

(Nothing left, nothing left for me to do)

You're the one that I want.
(You are the one I want)
Oh, oh, oh. Honey.
The one that I want.
(You are the one I want want)
Oh, oh, oh. Honey.
The one that I want
(You are the one I want want)
Oh, oh, oh.
The one I need.
Oh, yes indeed.

Oh, yeah yeah yeah

If you're filled with affection,
You're to shy to convey,
Betta take my direction.
(feel your way)

(I'll feel my way)

You better shape up,
'Cause you're the only one,
(The only one)
That I want here by my side.

I'd better shape up,
If I'm gonna show,
That my faith is justified.

Are you sure?

Yes, I'm sure down deep inside.

You're the one that I want.
(You are the one I want)
Oh, oh, oh. Honey.
The one that I want.
(You are the one I want want)
Oh, oh, oh. Honey.
The one that I want
(You are the one I want want)
Oh, oh, oh.
The one I need.
Oh, yes indeed.

I've got chills they're multiplying.
(You're the one I want)
'Cause the power you're supplying.
(You're the one, baby)
If you're filled with affection ,
(You're the one I want)
Betta take my direction.
(You're the one, baby)

You're the one that I want.
(Are you the one for me?)
Oh, oh, oh. Honey.
The one that I want.
(You are the one I want want)
Oh, oh, oh. Honey.
The one that I want
(You are the one I want want),
Oh, oh, oh.
The one I need.
(The one I need)
Oh, yes indeed.
(Oh, yes indeed.)

    General CommentI'm in love with this song and the way it makes me feel. I think it's about a guy wanting to be with a girl after realizing that she is the one.

    I love the line:
    The guards are always at the gates
    Turning everyone away
    But you got through
    Didn't you?

    Because my heart is guarded right now and I haven't met anyone who could slip through. But in the end that's all we want, isn't it?

    Lyric CorrectionThe posted lyrics are not for the song by Chris and Thomas. I submitted the correct lyrics weeks ago but they were never updated. Apparently this site is suffering some neglect.
