1. To visualize; imagine: "She tried to fancy what the flame of a candle looks like after the candle is blown out" Lewis Carroll.

 

Johannes did a great job with "Fancy me".  In the context of the lyrics, the expression is probably closest to Number 1 (see above).  It's not a common expression, at least it's not common today.  However, it's heard.  Somewhat more common is "Fancy that."  (Imagine that, visualize that, etc.)  It's used something like "Capaz" in RS.

 

Joe just won a four year scholarship.

Fancy that!  I bet he and his family are very happy.
