Lady Gaga, “Born This Way” (Lyrics)

11 Feb

Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” is probably going to be her next Billboard number one; the only question is whether that will happen next week, making it the 1,000th chart-topper in Hot 100 history. I think it’s good enough to be and will.

I can’t take credit for all the lyrics here — Gaga leaked them herself — but I did double-check and refine them against the song, make them more readable with the lower case, and added ad-libs where necessary. So the “Born This Way” lyrics are after the jump, and you can hear “Born This Way” on nearly every radio station owned by Clear Channel on the hour today, and you can download a “Born This Way” MP3 at iTunes or wherever you crazy kids download singles nowadays.

Lyrics

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

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 nothin’ wrong with lovin’ 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”

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

Oooh, there ain’t no other way
Baby, I was born this way
Baby, I was born this way
(Born this way)

Oooh, there ain’t no other way
Baby, I was born this way
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, don’t be, don’t be)

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 (Safety in me)

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

Oooh, there ain’t no other way
Baby, I was born this way
Baby, I was born this way
(Born this way)

Oooh, there ain’t no other way
Baby, I was born this way
I’m on the right track, baby
I was born this way

(Waaaay! Waaaay!)

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

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, yeah!

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!

(Same DNA)
(But born this way)
(Same DNA)
(But born this way)
