The One


No this one...
No that one...
this one,
yeah! this one...

No - this is the one,
this is it,
this is the one,

This is that one,
is it?
yes...

This is this one,
no this is that one,

It is the one...
is it,
it is,
Hmm?

And this used to be
that one,
no that one is not
this one,

Yes this is the old one,
before that one,
(wait a minute) ,
No! not that one...
forget that!

This is the one now,
as close to the one I had,

but not that one, this is one
that I thought - that's the one,
this is it...

Yes this is it, and I have it,
yes it is the one,
Yeah this is the one...

This is that one,
oh! God yeah! without
any shadow of a doubt,

this one and that one,
Oh! God it's like when
you start saying it...

This is the one
the only one
the imperial one
oh! yes!

This is the one
the one and only,
last ever,
yes,

This is the one
and no other - never,

The one,
one, one and only,

one - forever!

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.

A hare who, in a civil way,
