Born This Way

[Intro]

This is the manifesto of Mother Monster:

On GOAT, a government owned territory in space, a birth of magnificent and magical proportions took place. But the birth was not finite, it was infinite. As the wombs numbered and the mitosis of the future began it was perceived that this infamous moment in life is not temporal, it is eternal. And thus began the beginning of the new race; a race within the race of humanity; a race which bears no prejudice, no judgment but boundless freedom. But on that same day as the eternal Mother hovered in the multiverse another, more terrifying, birth took place: the birth of evil.

And as she, herself, split into two, rotating in agony between two ultimate forces, the pendulum of choice began its dance. It seems easy, you imagine, to gravitate, instantly and unwaveringly, towards good but she wondered, “How can I protect something so perfect without evil?”

It doesn’t matter if you love him,
Or capital H-I-M (M, M, M, M)
Just put your paws up
’cause you were born this way, baby

[Verse 1]
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”

[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 (born this way)

[Post-chorus]
Ooo there ain’t no other way
Baby I was born this way
Baby I was born this way (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! (Don’t be! Don’t be!)

[Verse 2]
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 (my love wants faith)

[Repeat Chorus & Post Chorus]

[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]
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, I’m born this way. Same DNA, I’m born this way.

2011 Lady Gaga; Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta

  1. An Eutopian world…one of ideal order and goodness…

  2. Thank you for the complete transcription of the lyrics.
    Here’s a little help for the Italian sentence “Mi amore vole fe – my love wants/needs faith” – I’m a native speaker of a latin descent language, so it was fairly easy to understand and translate it. I would like to stress that the expression “vole” could have both the refered meanings, depending on the context. While translating it, you should use the one that you think fits best the context.I would probably use “my love wants faith” because I think it represents better the sense of the original sentence,but that’s just my opinion. Anyway, thank you very much for the transcription.

    • thanks for the help with the translation.
      pax,

  3. Lady Gaga rocks!!
    I wish she could have better luck than Amy …I mean with a boyfriend.
    Best wishes

    • i agree she rocks. Hope she fares better than George Harrison did with the plagiarism lawsuit concerning “Judas/Juda”.

  4. I do believe all the ideas you’ve introduced for your post. They are really convincing and can definitely work. Nonetheless, the posts are very quick for beginners. Could you please prolong them a little from subsequent time? Thanks for the post.

    • this post was only meant to be the complete lyrics. Can’t make them any longer than Gaga did. If you’re talking about the rest of the blog, i generally try to keep things short and sweet. In a few of my posts i rambled on but only because i felt i needed to cover things historically. Take care and happy Gagaing. Hope she recovers soon and gets back on the road again.

  5. It’s GOAT, not goad. (Government Owned Alien Territory)

  6. Love you love this song wish I can marry you. KISSesss

    • Too bad Lady Gaga is taken! She apparently married her long-time companion Taylor Kinney earlier this year.
