Obscure 80s lyrics time ;-)

I recently refound on WinMX one of my all time favorite 80s songs..

Chesney Hawkes, I am the One and Only

Call me, call me by my name or call me by my 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, ideas above my station

maybe but all this time I’ve tried to walk with dignity and pride


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!

Chorus – repeat to fade out


That’s what I love about 80s music.. the optimism..

    That song reached the top-40 chart on 9/7/91 so I would not consider it an 80s song.
