Aristocrat (feat. Garibay)

Poppy


In the palace of Versailles, before the fall
We were wild, we were so debauched
Extravagance was practically a law
If we ever got bored, we said: Let's throw a ball

And you'd chase me naked through the palace garden
Before we dove into a sparkling champagne fountain
Eating cake with a little golden butter
They never even knew that I got here from the gutter

'Cause I dance like an aristocrat
Hold your head up high, yeah, just like that
Show me that you understand
Come on and do it like only a poor kid can

Oh, aristocrat
Oh, dance like an aristocrat
Oh, aristocrat
Oh, dance like an aristocrat

In the middle of the night
The ladies of the court
Would catfight tryna be the king's consort
I'm sorry B, he's hot for me
La Comtesse du Poverty

Me and Marie dressed head to toe in diamonds
With an orchestra to drown out all the violence
And the gossip cut like a handcrafted stiletto
But they never figured out that I got here from the ghetto

'Cause I dance like an aristocrat
Hold your head up high, yeah, just like that
Show me that you understand
Come on and do it like only a poor kid can

Oh, aristocrat
Oh, dance like an aristocrat
Oh, aristocrat
Oh, dance like an aristocrat

Out of the fire
Out of the fire
Courante, Bourrée, Allemande if you want
Courante, Bourrée, Allemande if you want

Oh, aristocrat
Oh, dance like an aristocrat
Oh, aristocrat
Oh, dance like an aristocrat
