Born This Way
Lady Gaga Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

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 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"

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)

Oh there ain't no other way
Baby I was born this way
Baby I was born this way (born this way)
Oh 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 (same D.N.A.)

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

Oh there ain't no other way
Baby I was born this way
Baby I was born this way (born this way)
Oh there ain't no other way
Baby I was born this way
I'm on the right track, baby I was born this way

(Way) Don't be
(Don't be)
(Way) Church

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

Oh there ain't no other way
Baby I was born this way
Baby I was born this way (born this way)
Oh there ain't no other way
Baby I was born this way
I'm on the right track, baby I was born this way

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 D.N.A. But born this way

Hahaha, I see you haven't read the Bible because love said that self-love and self-pride are evil Prov 16:18, Jame 4;6. Love created and assigned both genders and "orientations" as male and female then put together and commanded them to be fruitful and multiply Gen 1;27-28, Gen 2:22-24, Mark 10:6-9, affirmed by Jesus in Matt 19:5, For this reason, a man shall leave his father and mother to b with his wife.

Love clearly said same-gender sex/LGBTQ is unacceptable and that those who commit the act will not inherit heaven or the earth but will be cast into hellfire and destroyed never to exist again 1 Cor 6:9-11, Rev 21:8-10.

Love said in Rom 1:24-28, Because of disbelief, disobedience, self-pride, and love of self, Love gave them over to vile affection the woman gave up the "natural" use for man as did the give up the "natural" use for a woman doing unspeakable acts one to another.

Being a good person cannot save you from the judgment God has already made against the practice of same-gender sex Isiaha 64:6, Eph 2;8, 1 Cor 1;29, no one has an excuse, no one has a license, and no is exempt just because they are a "nice person".

Gaga can't save your soul her soul is in the same danger of destruction like everyone else. Sorry, you nor she have any idea of what love is nor of what love did for you, but you better get "woke' before its too late death and the grave are real as God said you will die and can't stop it Gen 3;19, Rom 3;23, Rom 6;23.😊😊
