Songfacts®:

  • The-Dream sings on this smooth ballad about his dream girl who has expensive tastes:

    Trips to Monaco, designer names from head to toe (live fancy)
    On planes that fly clean across the roaming skies (live fancy)
    Brilliant cars, spend evenings among the stars (live fancy)
    Diamond rings
    All those things
    Live fancy


    The-Dream commented in a Genius attribution:

    "It's one of those special candy records for me. I dream like that and the people that are with me dream like that, but you don't dream like that.

    People didn't even say the word 'fancy' like that before I said it. Next thing you know, there are eight records out there saying, 'I'm so fancy.' Alright, everybody's fancy now. It's like 'put a ring on it,' 'I woke up like this.' I write them T-shirts. That's what I call it. 'Can that be on a T-shirt? Yes, okay, cool. It's a good line.'"
