      Reba McEntire - Fancy Música y Letra

      I remember it all very well lookin' back
      It was the summer I turned eighteen
      We lived in a one room, rundown shack
      On the outskirts of New Orleans
      We didn't have money for food or rent
      To say the least we were hard pressed
      Then Mama spent every last penny we had
      To buy me a dancin' dress
      
      Mama washed and combed and curled my hair
      And she painted my eyes and lips then I stepped into
      a satin'
      dancin' dress that had a split on the side clean up
      to my hip
      It was red velvet trim and it fit me good
      Standin' back from the lookin' glass
      There stood a woman where a half grown kid
      had stood
      
      She said here's your one chance Fancy don't let
      me down
      Here's your one chance Fancy don't let me down
      
      Mama dabbled a little bit of perfume on my neck
      And she kissed my cheek
      Then I saw the tears wellin' up in her troubled eys
      When she started to speak
      She looked at a pitiful shackAnd then she looked at me and took a ragged
      breath
      She said your Pa's run off and I'm real sick
      And the baby's gonna starve to death
      
      She handed me a heart shaped locket that said
      "To thine own self be true"
      And I shivered as I watched a roach crawl accross
      The toe of my high heeled shoe
      It sounded like somebody else that was talkin'
      Askin' Mama what do I do
      She said be nice to the gentlemen Fancy
      And they'll be nice to you
      She said here's your one chance Fancy don't let me down
      Here's your one chance Fancy don't let me downLord forgive me for what I do,
      but if you want out
      Well it's up to you
      Now don't let me down you better start
      movin' uptown
      
      Well, that was the last time I saw my Ma
      The night I left that rickety shack
      The welfare people came and took the baby
      Mama died and I ain't been back
      
      But the wheels of fate had started to turn
      And for me there was no way out
      And it wasn't very long 'til I knew exactly
      What my Mama'd been talkin' about
      
      I knew what I had to do but I made myself this
      solemn vowThat I's gonna be a lady someday
      Though I didn't know when or how
      I couldn't see spending the rest of my life
      With my head hung down in shame you know
      I might have been born just plain white trash
      But Fancy was my name
      
      Here's your one chance Fancy don't let me down
      Here's your one chance Fancy don't let me down
      
      It wasn't long after that benevolent man
      Took me off the street
      And one week later I was pourin' his tea
      In a five room hotel suite
      
      I charmed a king, congressman
      And an occasional aristocrat
      Then I got me a Georgia mansion
      In an elegant New York townhouse flat
      And I ain't done bad
      
      Now in this world there's a lot of self-righteous
      hippocrates
      That would call me bad
      And criticize Mama for turning me out
      No matter how little we had
      
      But though I ain't had to worry 'bout nothin'
      For nigh on fifteen years
      I can still hear the desperation in my poor
      Mama's voice ringin' in my ear
      
      She said, here's your one chance Fancy don't let me down
      Here's your one chance Fancy don't let me down
      Lord, forgive me for what I do
      But if you want out well it's up to you
      Now don't let me down
      You Mama's gonna help you uptown
      
      I guess she did
