The One and Only

Chesney Hawkes

About The One and Only

"The One and Only" is a song written by Nik Kershaw, and recorded by the British singer Chesney Hawkes. Produced by Kershaw and Alan Shacklock, Hawkes' recording was featured in the 1991 film Buddy's Song which starred Hawkes as the eponymous Buddy and Roger Daltrey as his father. The film performed moderately well at the UK box office, but the song was a hit in that country's music charts, spending five weeks at number one on the UK Singles Chart in March and April 1991.

I am the one and only, oh yeah 

Call me, call me by my name or call me by number 
You put me through it 
I'll still be doing it the way I do it 
And yet, you try to make me forget 
Who I really am, don't tell me I know best 
I'm not the same as all the rest 

I am the one and only 
Nobody I'd rather be 
I am the one and only 
You can't take that away from me 

I've been a player in the crowd scene 
A flicker on the big screen 
My soul embraces one more in a million faces 
High hopes and aspirations, and years above my station 
Maybe but all this time I've tried to walk with dignity and pride 

I am the one and only 
Nobody I'd rather be 
I am the one and only 
You can't take that away from me 

I can't wear this uniform without some compromises 
Because you'll find out that we come 
In different shapes and sizes 
No one can be myself like I can 
For this job I'm the best man 
And while this may be true 
You are the one and only you 

I am the one and only 
Nobody I'd rather be 
I am the one and only 
You can't take that away from me 

I am the one and only 
Nobody I'd rather be 
I am the one and only 
You can't take that away from me
