No, I think the terrible contradiction between the "one" and the "ev'ry" is simply inept lyric writing, sounding at first hearing - which in the theatre is the point - as if she or the lyricist isn't in charge of what they're wanting to convey, a problem that should have been clarified by changing the rhyme line. It's so easily fixed, as my suggestions below may indicate. It's the signature song for the character in the first act, really of the whole show in a way; it should not have such errors or even - to accept some of the arguments here - ambiguity...that is, unintentional ambiguity.
All the best,
Peter
