Song: “One” From the Broadway Musical “A Chorus Line” — The Music of Marvin Hamlisch

The human struggle behind the songs:

Every kid who ever came to New York to work in and around the theater, or anybody who dances for a living in that milieu, will immediately connect with the stories of the characters of A Chorus Line, and upon listening to them will say, “That’s me.” Which may explain why this is such an emotional show for so many people.

THE LYRICS:

One” (Musical: A Chorus Line)

[Boys]
One singular sensation
Every little step she takes.
One thrilling combination
Every move that she makes.
One smile and suddenly nobody else will do;
You know you’ll never be lonely with you know who.
One moment in her presence
And you can forget the rest.
For the girl is second best
To none,
Son.
Ooooh! Sigh! Give her your attention.
Do…I…really have to mention?
She’s the One!

[Girls]
One singular sensation
Every little step she takes.
One thrilling combination
Every move that she makes.
One smile and suddenly nobody else will do;
You know you’ll never be lonely with you know who.
One moment in her presence
And you can forget the rest.
For the girl is second best
To none,
Son.
Ooooh! Sigh! Give her your attention.
Do…I…really have to mention?
She’s the One!
