Artiestinformatie


De Chi-Lites waren afkomstig uit Chicago en kwamen niet zoals de meeste soulgroepen uit Memphis of Philadelphia. De leadzanger van de groep was Eugene Record. De groep scoorde in Amerika elf top 10-r&b-hits tussen 1969 en 1974. In Nederland scoorde de groep slechts één bescheiden Top 40-hit met (For God's Sake) Give More Power to the People. Dit nummer stond 4 weken in de Top 40 en bereikte de 26e plaats als hoogste notering. Daarnaast stond de groep nog 4 keer in de Tipparade (o.a. met Have You Seen Her).

Eugene Record is op 64-jarige leeftijd in 2005 in Chicago overleden.



Songtekst

[CHORUS]
You got to be the one
You got to be the one
You got to be the one
You got to be the one

I got the stars, the moon and sun
All rolled up in one
I'm not one who talks a lot
Always brags about what he's got

Woman, you make me feel like a king
And I say, it's a wonderful thing
You got me hung up in
This love thing, yeah

[Repeat CHORUS]

And though I've been in love before
Never thought I wanted any more
You place at my command
More love than a body could stand

A joy so strange to me
One I feel so easily
Ask me how your love is
I would say heavenly, yeah

[Repeat CHORUS]

I'm not one who brags a lot
Always talks about what he's got
Woman, you give me all your love
Ready to answer every call

Girl, you make me feel like a king
And I say, it's a wonderful thing
You got me hung up
Strung out in this love thing
This love thing, this love thing
This love thing

[Repeat CHORUS]

You got to be the one
You got to be the one
You got to be the one
The one and only one

Oh, you got to be the one for me
You got to be the one
You got to be the one
The one and only one

I would swim the deepest ocean
Swim the deepest sea
Anything, baby
To bring your love to me

Oh, oh, oh
You got to be the one
The one and only one for me
You got to be the one
The one and only one

Oh, you got to be the one
The one and only one for me
Oh, you got to be the one
The one and only one

Oh, you got to be the one
The one and only one for me
You got to be the one
The one and only one
