Lady Gaga Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Whoa, I'm in love with Juda-ah-as, Juda-ah-as
Whoa, I'm in love with Juda-ah-as, Juda-ah-as
Judas, Juda-ah-as, Judas, Juda-ah-as
Judas, Juda-ah-as, Judas, Gaga

Judas, Juda-ah-as, Judas, Juda-ah-as
Judas, Juda-ah-as, Judas, Gaga

When he calls to me, I am ready
I'll wash his feet with my hair if he needs
Forgive him when his tongue lies through his brain
Even after three times he betrays me

Ahh-oh, ahh-oh, I'll bring him down, bring him down, down
Ahh-oh, ahh-oh, a king with no crown, king with no crown

I'm just a Holy Fool
Oh, baby, it's so cruel
But I'm still in love with Judas, baby
I'm just a Holy Fool
Oh, baby, it's so cruel
But I'm still in love with Judas, baby

Whoa, I'm in love with Juda-ah-as, Juda-ah-as
Whoa, I'm in love with Juda-ah-as, Juda-ah-as
Judas, Juda-ah-as, Judas, Juda-ah-as
Judas, Juda-ah-as, Judas, Gaga

I couldn't love a man so purely
Even prophets forgave his goofy way
I've learned love is like a brick, you can
Build a house or sink a dead body

Ahh-oh, ahh-oh, I'll bring him down, bring him down, down
Ahh-oh, ahh-oh, a king with no crown, king with no crown

I'm just a Holy Fool
Oh, baby, it's so cruel
But I'm still in love with Judas, baby
I'm just a Holy Fool
Oh, baby, it's so cruel
But I'm still in love with Judas, baby

Whoa, I'm in love with Juda-ah-as, Juda-ah-as
Whoa, I'm in love with Juda-ah-as, Juda-ah-as

(Ew)

In the (ew) most Biblical sense
I am beyond repentance
Fame hooker, prostitute wench, vomits her mind
But in the cultural sense, I just speak in future tense
Judas, kiss me, if offenced or wear an ear condom next time

I wanna love you
But something's pulling me away from you
Jesus is my virtue
And Judas is the demon I cling to
I cling to

Just a Holy Fool
Oh, baby, it's so cruel
But I'm still in love with Judas, baby
I'm just a Holy Fool
Oh, baby (just a), it's so cruel (Holy Fool)
But I'm still in love with Judas, baby

Whoa, I'm in love with Juda-ah-as, Juda-ah-as
Whoa, I'm in love with Juda-ah-as, Juda-ah-as
Judas, Juda-ah-as, Judas, Juda-ah-as
Judas, Juda-ah-as, Judas, Gaga

Overall Meaning

Lady Gaga's song "Judas" is a complex exploration of religious themes and a personal struggle with love and morality. The song is structured around the repeated refrain "Whoa, I'm in love with Judas," which itself plays with the idea of loving and betraying those we hold most dear. The first verse describes a willingness to forgive and submit to Judas, even after he has betrayed the singer multiple times. She declares her love for him despite his flaws, comparing love to the process of building or destroying a house with a brick. The chorus repeats the refrain, emphasizing the singer's devotion to Judas even as she acknowledges the cruel irony.


In the second verse, the lyrics become more explicit in their religious imagery. The singer describes herself as a "Holy Fool" and contrasts the purity of Jesus with the "demon" of Judas that she clings to. She claims to be beyond repentance, highlighting the tension between her love for Judas and her faith. The bridge of the song introduces a more playful tone, using humor and wordplay to contrast the Biblical references with modern slang. Gaga declares herself a "fame hooker" and "prostitute wench," suggesting that her own experiences with betrayal and love are just as relevant as the stories of ancient prophets.


Overall, "Judas" is a powerful and thought-provoking song that explores complex themes of love, betrayal, and morality. It combines religious imagery with modern slang and personal experience, creating a unique and memorable piece of music.
