LYRICS

Baby, what do you feel? Yes (Huh?)
I am falling for you (Really?)
Come on. Let me feel
Let me feel a second for you

Verse A
講起柯德莉夏萍 多麼端莊而嫻靜
抱歉 柯德莉夏萍 難完成這使命

Verse B
都看星 誰都看星 誰都有追過星
沿襲某些設定 但是我在懷疑
現代的新女性 另有氣質 祈求被鑑定

Chorus
唯有她 能夠珠光寶氣 不俗艷如落霞
就算穿得很樸素 仍難自棄高貴吧
但是我知 今世我是我
如何照抄 她的精美繡花
我都是假的 都不優雅

由我去做其他吧
人有很多風格 不必一概似她
我的古怪與神化 仍然是我專有吧
但是我知 風格要代價
旁人看不懂的 總要笑它
我可是真的 不標準嗎 但太標準有用嗎

Verse B
偏峰的 與 保守的
草根的 與 嬌滴滴
同樣也想變做偶像成名
或是每日談情 看著門前男朋友過剩

Verse A
經典 柯德莉夏萍 早經很多人評定
最愛的指定類型 如神壇已坐定

Verse B
不似她 如不似她
能得到觀眾擁戴嗎
如若我不要學美麗人形
以我的真個性 亦信有天潮流任我定

Chorus
唯有她 能夠珠光寶氣 不俗艷如落霞
就算穿得很樸素 仍難自棄高貴吧
但是我知 今世我是我
如何照抄 她的精美繡花
我都是假的 都不優雅

由我去做其他吧
人有很多風格 不必一概似她
我的古怪與神化 仍然是我專有吧
但是我知 風格要代價
旁人看不懂的 總要笑它
我可是一家 不單一化 而我喜歡我造化

Baby, what do you feel? Yes (Huh?)
I am falling for you (Really?)
Come on. Let me feel
Let me feel a second for you

Chorus
由我去做唯一吧
人有很多風格 不必一概似她
我的古怪與神化 仍然是我專有吧
但是我知 風格要代價
旁人看不懂的 總要笑它
我可是真的 不標準嗎 但太標準有用嗎

Speaking of Audrey Hepburn
She’s so dignified and refined
Sorry Audrey Hepburn
I don’t think I’ll fulfill this mission
Everyone looks at the stars
Who hasn’t chased the stars
Abiding by certain customs
but I’m doubting
Contemporary ladies have other qualities
Longing to be appraised

Only she could be richly bejewelled and didn’t look tasteless
Even when in plain clothes, she couldn’t shed her nobility
But I know I am me at this time of the world
No matter how I try to copy her delicacy
I am fake, and can’t be considered elegant

Let me be someone else then
There are many types of people, there’s no need for everyone to be like her
My eccentricity and craziness is uniquely mine perhaps
But I know I have to pay a price having my own style
Others who don’t understand will laugh at me
Yet I am real
Not pretty by the standard of today’s society?
but what’s the use of achieving that standard?

Unusual, conservative
Down-to-earth as well as charmingly sweet girls
They all want to be famous stars
Or go dating every day
Watching boyfriends lining up at the front door

Audrey Hepburn was classic, and well accepted by the masses
The most desired type
There’s no dispute about that
If I’m not like her,
will the audience like me?
If I don’t want to copy this beauty standard,
with my real character, I still believe I’ll be the trend someday

Yet I am the one and only one
Unlike most others
And I like creating my own style

Let me be the only one
