  • I got the outfit for the party but you’ve taken away the invitation
    And I’d like to thank you Rashida for doing this
    And giving me a reason to write a song

    I guess I’ll have to go a begging for that Vanity Fair connection
    And I’d like to thank you Rashida
    It’s been a while since I have gone a begging
    So very, very long

    I finally saw you at the party in a dress that was well, quite stunning
    And I’d like to thank you Rashida
    For giving me a reason to call Miss Portman
    And to write this song Writer/s: RUFUS WAINWRIGHT
