Ooh, ooh

If U're lookin' 4 the man that will walk away from responsibility
I ain't the 1
And if U're lookin' 4 the brother that'll treat U like anything but a queen
Ooh, I ain't the 1
Yeah

But if U're lookin' 4 a man that'll sweep U off ur tired weary feet
Mmhmm
Pay ur bills, buy U pretty dresses and take U anywhere U wanna eat
Ooh
Make love 2 U every night of the week
Oh, I don't think U heard me, girl
Look no further
Ooh, I am the 1
Oh yes I am

Ooh, ooh

If U're lookin' 4 a man that'll make big money and keep it all 2 himself
I ain't the 1, no no, not me, uh-uh
And if U're lookin' 4 a man that'll have 10 women
And confuse it all with his wealth, huh
Listen here, I ain't that 1, no, no no
Wait a minute

But if U're lookin' 4 a man who can share his dinero (His money)
Buy U half the town, oh
Treat every step U take as if U're walkin', huh, on holy ground
Place U, place U above all others, huh
When it comes, when it comes 2 the gettin' on down
Huh, look no further
Ooh, ur man's around, oh yes he is (He's around...)
He's standin' right here, right here
Don't U look no further, girl, oh
He's standing right here, right here

I am the 1
I am the 1

If U're lookin' 4 a man that'll make U feel like time has just begun
Ooh
A man that'll make U feel like U're the only thing that ever mattered
Underneath the sun, underneath the sun, ooh
If U're lookin' 4 somebody who will turn ur bad day n2 1 long night of fun
Look no further, baby, I'm... I'm the 1
Oh yes I am, I am the 1
Don't U look no further, girl
Oh, I am the 1
Oh yes, oh yes, oh yes, oh
My, my, my little Mayte, I'm the 1
