It sounds like you have a twin pole switch but it will work fine using just one pole for the switch line. If you are actually going to buy one you only need a 1 way switch (2 terminals)
But a 2 way switch (3 terminals) will also work fine as well.

The best way to resolve your problem in all honesty would be to hire a qualified electrician, this shouldnt cost much to rectify.
