RuPaul - Supermodel Lyrics




"Once upon a time, there was a little black girl in the Brewster Projects of Detroit, Michigan.
At fifteen, she was spotted by an Ebony Fashion Fair talent scout, and her modeling career took off."

You better work

You better work (Cover girl)
Work it, girl (Give a twirl)
Do your thing
On the runway

Work (Supermodel)
You better work it, girl (Of the world)
Wet your lips
And make love to the camera

Work (Turn to the left)
Work (Now turn to the right)
Work (Sashay, shanté)
Work (Turn to the left)
Work (Now turn to the right)
Work (Sashay, shanté)

It don't matter what you wear (It doesn't matter what you wear)
They're checking out your savoir faire (Yeah)
And it don't matter what you do
'Cause everything looks good on you (Supermodel)

Work (Cover girl)
Work it, girl (Give a twirl)
Do your thing
On the runway

Work (Supermodel)
You better work it, girl (Of the world)
Wet your lips
And make love to the camera

Work (Turn to the left)
Work (Now turn to the right)
Work (Sashay, shanté)
Work (Turn to the left)
Work (Now turn to the right)
Work (Sashay, shanté)

I see your picture everywhere (I see your picture everywhere)
A million-dollar derrière (Yeah)
And when you walked into the room
You had everybody's eyes on you (Supermodel)

Linda (Work mama)
Naomi (She is fierce)
Christy (Foxy lady out of sight)
Cindy (I can feel it)
Claudia (Sell the garment)
Nikki (Work the runway, sweetie)

I have one thing to say
Sashay, shanté
Shanté, shanté
Shanté, shanté, shanté

I have one thing to say
Sashay, shanté
Shanté, shanté
Shanté, shanté, shanté

It don't matter what you wear (It doesn't matter what you wear)
They're checking out your savoir faire (Yeah)
And it don't matter what you do
'Cause everything looks good on you (Supermodel)

Work (Cover girl)
Work it, girl (Give a twirl)
Do your thing
On the runway

Work (Supermodel)
You better work it, girl (Of the world)
Wet your lips
And make love to the camera

Work (Turn to the left)
Work (Now turn to the right)
Work (Sashay, shanté)
Work (Turn to the left)
Work (Now turn to the right)
Work (Sashay, shanté)

You better work
Work
Work (Supermodel)
You better work
Work
Work

"I have one thing to say: you better work."

    Absolite? Don’t you mean OBSOLETE?? 😂😂. If you’re going to burn your flame on high, at least learn to spell! Oh, one other thing... While you’re wishing for the straight, normal public to become obsolete, don’t forget to thank your STRAIGHT parents for creating your dumb ass...

  3. Michaela Andrew

    Classic ❤💋❤💋"can I get a Amen up in 'heer" ❤💋❤💋

  4. Jose Duhalde

    music is gay ??

  5. Tina Fields

    MaMa Ru is, was and ALWAYS will be Eternal like those legs!! 💜😃 Damn 😱😘 Would LOVE to meet her!

  6. yandrsupreme

    This was big in the gay clubs... but didn't make a huge impression on mainstream music like other dance hits of the era did...this only went to # 45 on the hot 100, compared to songs like Ce Ce Penniston's "Finally" which topped out at #5, and Dee-lite's "Groove Is In the Heart" which went all the way to #2. It's kind of odd that Michelle Visage plays Ru's sidekick, when Michelle has 4 top 40 hits to her credit, while Rupaul has ZERO

  7. Sylvia S

    Those last shots of Ru remind me of Gloria Swanson as Norma Desmond in the closing scene of Sunset Boulevard.
    Classic.

  8. witchykittie

  17. Ilham Quincy

    You better work, that’s so true ,,,, but the hell place I am in, they fighting me to be myself, to work and be someone, but my country is fighting me, I’ve cut all my diplomas and every thing I’ve lost everything .... I can have any of my rights here,,,, I don’t have either the right of free medicine or visit a doctor ........

    In 93 I have no idea about drag and I was thinking that Rupaul is transsexual. And I was (still I am) amazed with her body. This video was on MTV every single day.
