Bouncer:
R... R... How do you spell it? Rah-ciste?
Nope, I'm sorry, your name is not on the list.

Bodyguard:
Step aside! Step Aside!

Caroline Polachek:
No-no-no, it's cool. They're with me.

I spotted you in Sean John
At the Spring and Summer sample sale
The overstock of oversize made you look so thin and pale
Where has we met before?
Balenciaga show?
Backstage in Paris or face-hunting in Milan, oooh let's go

Kool-A.D.:

I'm at the fashion party
I'm wearing fashion clothes
I'm putting fashionable powders up inside my nose
Looking at these fashion friends
Tryin' to make them fashion ends
Tryin' to touch that fashion paper
Like they was fashion pens
I'm like a fountain pen
I look like mountain man
But I'm not a mountain man
I'm a fucking mountain, man
I fuck with fashion trends
My trends are fashion forward
Two dollar jeans and Gucci visors from the dollar store

Heems:

Garbage bags, 'Lahn-vahn'
Why you call it 'Lanvin'?
People very educated out here in the Hamptons
Yes I'm tan, and Taliban chic
Shorty said I look like a Taliban freak
Mr. Tally Man told me I'm bananas last week
I'm Heems, working on a line with Khalif
Let's freak
Highest thread counts on my sheet
Ain't I seen you at that fashion party last week?

I'm at a fashion party
I'm wear-ing fashion clothes
I'm wearing fashion fabrics everyone in fashion knows (cotton!)
I'm smoking ganja, weed
(But dog, what about the Janjaweed?)
Yo the Pope wear Prada, the devil wear Prada
I can't be bothered, I'm tryin to holla!

Caroline:

I see London, I see France
Where'd you get yourself those pants?
I can't tell if you want to hit me or if you want to dance
Hot pink and acid green
All dressed up like Halloween
Can't tell you if I know you from the catalogue or magazine
(She's a model and she's looking good)
I got the cameras flashin',
Fa-Fa-Fa Fashion

Kool A.D.:

Next is bed and breakfast
Carmel, Michel Foucault, Michelle ma belle
Yup, Western medicine
Lobster steak and venison
Wafer thin crackers, famous actors
Duck confit, Pinot Grigio
Hummus with miso, scallopicio
So freaky-deaky, so fashion

Caroline:
I'll take a five zero CK one
And make a two three sport
Tell the interns to shut the Dior
Studded, beaded, slip-on flats
With high-top low-rise ankle wraps
Mulberry, periwinkle, beige crew
Eggplant, mustard, midnight blue
Tie-dye laced with leather trim
Musky sport cologne for him

Caroline:

I see London, I see France
Where'd you get yourself those pants?
I can't tell if you want to hit me or if you want to dance
Hot pink acid green
All dressed up like Halloween
Can't tell you if I know you from the catalogue or magazine
(She's a model and she's looking good)
(Fashion party)
I got the cameras flashin',
Fa-Fa-Fa Fashion

(She's a model and she's looking good
Baby, he's a model and she's looking good)

I see London, I see France
Where'd you get yourself those pants?
I can't tell if you want to hit me or if you want to dance
Hot pink and acid green
All dressed up like Halloween
Can't tell you if I know you from the catalogue or magazine
(She's a model and she's looking good)
(Fashion party)
I got the cameras flashin',
Fa-Fa-Fa Fashion

Kool A.D.:
Barbizon, Louis Vitton
Tight Salons, André Breton
Heems is there, I don't care
I'll pull down your underwear

Caroline:
I'll show them acid green
All dressed up like Halloween
Can't tell you if I know you from the catalogue or magazine
(She's a model and she's looking good)
I got the cameras flashin',
Fa-Fa-Fa Fashion

    Lyric CorrectionSome corrections/suggestions:

    R... R... How do you spell it, Rah-ciste?

    Where has we met before?
    Balenciaga show?

    Carmel, Michel Foucault, Michelle ma belle

    I'll take a five zero CK one
    and make a two three sport (?)

    General CommentFixed, thanks! By the time these lyrics are perfect I'm sure I'll know more about fashion houses than I ever needed to.

    Lyric CorrectionPretty sure Heems verse is closer to

    "Yes I'm tan and Taliban chic
    Shorty said I look like a Taliban freak
    Mr. Tally Man told me I'm bananas last week
    I'm Heems, working on a line with Caliph (?)
    Let's freak
    Highest thread counts on my sheet
    Ain't I seen you at that fashion party last week"

    General Comment"Stockholm(?) fit" = duck confit, although he mispronounces it. It's usually said "duck con-FEE".

    Lyric CorrectionEndlessly fun song. Love it to death.

    Pretty sure verse 1 goes like this tho:
    ...
    I looking like mountain men
    But I'm not a mounting man
    I'm a fucking mountain, man
    ...

    cheers
