Born this Way Lyrics Lady Gaga

Meat is not Murder according to Gaga
Born This Way is the title song of the album of the same name by Lady Gaga. It is the first full length follow up to her monster of an album, The Fame. As usual, Gaga wrote all the music and lyrics herself.

Elton John was one of the first people to hear Gaga's song before it's release in 2011 and said "will completely get rid of Gloria Gaynor's I Will Survive. This is the new I Will Survive. That was the gay anthem. This is the new gay anthem. Actually, it's not a gay anthem - it can apply to anybody." 

It's not surprising  lyrics of Gaga's Born This Way make direct reference to homosexuality as Gaga has herself been a popular advocate for gay rights. In 2010, she had her website redirected to a different website which asked the US military to abolish 'their don't ask, don't tell policy'. Apparently when she wore her now infamous meat dress, this was a protest against this policy. The campaign was a success, the policy was removed by Barrack Obama in late 2010.


Upon release, Born This Way true immediate comparisons with the singing style of Madonna and in particular the singing style found on Express Yourself.

But you came here for the song's lyrics so here they are...

Born This Way Lyrics:


Introduction:

It doesn’t matter if you love him, or capital H.I.M
Just put your paws up
’cause you were Born This Way, Baby

First Verse:
My mama told me when I was young
We are all born superstars
She rolled my hair and put my lipstick on
in the glass of her boudoir

There’s nothing wrong with loving who you are
she said, cause he made you perfect, babe
So hold your head up girl and you’ll go far
listen to me when I say

Chorus:
I’m beautiful in my way
’cause god makes no mistakes
I’m on the right track baby
I was born this way

Don’t hide yourself in regret
Just love yourself and you’re set
I’m on the right track baby
I was born this way

Post-Chorus:
ooo there ain’t no other way
baby I was born this way
baby I was born this way
ooo there ain’t no other way
baby I was born
I’m on the right track baby
I was born this way

Don’t be a drag - just be a queen
Don’t be a drag - just be a queen
Don’t be a drag - just be a queen
Don’t be!

2nd Verse:
Give yourself prudence
and love your friends
Subway kid, rejoice your truth

In the religion of the insecure
I must be myself, respect my youth

A different lover is not a sin
Believe capital H-I-M (hey hey hey)
I love my life I love this record and
Mi Amore Vole Fe Yah (love needs faith)

Bridge:
Don’t be a drag, just be a queen
Whether you’re broke or evergreen
You’re black, white, beige, chola descent
You’re lebanese, you’re orient
Whether life’s disabilities
Left you outcast, bullied, or teased
Rejoice and love yourself today
‘Cause baby you were born this way

No matter gay, straight, or bi,
Lesbian, transgendered life
I’m on the right track baby
I was born to survive
No matter black, white or beige
Chola or orient made
I’m on the right track baby
I was born to be brave

Repeat Chorus

Outro/Refrain:

I was born this way hey!
I was born this way hey!
I’m on the right track baby
I was born this way hey!

I was born this way hey!
I was born this way hey!
I’m on the right track baby
I was born this way hey!
