St. Paul, let's talk about this little high fashion dame
If U take the low then I'll take the high, let's ride

I know a sexy little girl
She's never n a low-class world
This woman is all the way vogue
High fashion is where her money goes
She dines at Le Dôme up on the strip
Cheap liquor never touches her lips
Her brandy's imported every week
No problem, 7000 easy

High fashion is where her money goes
High fashion, this girl is all the way vogue
She's never n a low-class world
High fashion, stuck-up little rich girl, uh
Skee wee
Skee wee
Skee

I met her dancin' at Le Dôme
I offered dinner at my home
She said no, all of her friends laughed
Funny how the laughin' stopped when I flashed all the cash I had
$1900 is 2 much cash 2 hold
1 of my boys had 2 carry half, now U know that's bold, wait a minute
She had the nerve 2 ask what kind of car I had
Honey, I'm ridin' n the back of a Rolls-Royce limo custom-painted plaid

High fashion is where my money goes
High fashion, honey, I'm all the way vogue
I'm never n a low-class world (She)
High fashion and I just love little rich girls (Yeah ooh)
Skee wee
Skee wee

Hot station, I took the child 2 my crib
Donation, do U take or do U give?
She took 1 look at the swimmin' pool
And said, "I'll donate," and we were 2 swimmin' fools

High fashion, that's where our money goes
High fashion, huh, and we're all the way vogue
We're never n a low-class world
High fashion, don't b a little stuck-up rich girl
I said all the way vogue (Skee wee)
I said all the way vogue (Skee wee)
I said all the way vogue (Skee)
That's enough
High fashion {repeat}
High fashion all the way {repeat}
High fashion {repeat}
Do U take?
High fashion
