There are numbers for the telephone
and numbers for my street
numbers on my grocery bill
and to tell my size of feet
there’s numbers as I turn the page
in every book I read
and numbers for each formula
in medicine or bread
numbers on a credit card
and driver’s license too
serial numbers, catalog numbers
there's scales and clocks, it’s true
but as I see all the numbers
when all is said and done
there’s only one I care about…
…it’s you, YOU’RE NUMBER ONE
