A fly girl by any other name would still be that
But the trick is to see that
What Vast says here is that just because a girl isn’t considered “fly” by everybody doesn’t mean that she isn’t.
“The Trick is to see that” because going after a girl that not everyone thinks is “fly” is easier than going after a highly-sought after one.
This song is about Vast’s pursuit of a girl with lots of other suitors, and this line advises listeners to pursue “fly” girls that not everyone considers “fly.”
