Beautiful, dirty, dirty, rich, rich, dirty, dirty
Beautiful, dirty, rich
Dirty, dirty, rich, dirty, dirty, rich, beautiful
Beautiful and dirty, dirty, rich, rich, dirty

We got a red light
Pornographic dance fight
Systematic, honey
But we got no money
Our hair is perfect
While were all getting shit wrecked
It's automatic, honey
But we got no money

Daddy, I'm so sorry, I'm so s-s-sorry, yeah
We just like to party, like to p-p-party, yeah

Bang bang
We're beautiful and dirty rich
(Dirty, dirty, rich, dirty, dirty, rich, beautiful)
Bang bang
We're beautiful and dirty rich
(Beautiful and dirty, dirty, rich, rich, bang bang)

We live a cute life
Sound-fanatic
Pants tighter than plastic, honey
But we got no money
We do the dance right
We have got it made like
Ice cream topped with honey
But we got no money

Daddy, I'm so sorry, I'm so s-s-sorry, yeah
We just like to party, like to p-p-party, yeah

Bang bang
We're beautiful and dirty rich
(Dirty, dirty, rich, dirty, dirty, rich, beautiful)
Bang bang
We're beautiful and dirty rich
(Beautiful and dirty, dirty, rich, rich, bang bang)

A-bang bang bang, bang bang bang
Beautiful, dirty rich
A-bang bang bang, bang bang bang
Beautiful, dirty rich

Bang bang
We're beautiful and dirty rich
(Dirty, dirty, rich, dirty, dirty, rich, beautiful)
Bang bang
We're beautiful and dirty rich
(Beautiful and dirty, dirty, rich, rich, bang bang)

Bang bang
(Dirty, dirty, rich, dirty, dirty, rich, beautiful)




Bang bang
(Beautiful and dirty, dirty, rich, rich, bang bang)

Overall Meaning

The song "Beautiful Dirty Rich" by Lady Gaga depicts a life of excess, partying, and living in the moment without much regard for financial stability. The repetition of "beautiful, dirty, rich" throughout the song expresses the hedonistic lifestyle of the characters portrayed in the lyrics. The first verse describes a wild night at a red-light district with a "pornographic dance fight" and drinking heavily despite having no money. The chorus repeats the phrase "bang bang" which further emphasizes the reckless and carefree attitude of the characters.


The second verse continues to describe the extravagant but financially unstable lifestyle of the characters. They have "tighter than plastic" clothes, do the dance right, and indulge in expensive treats such as "ice cream topped with honey," yet still struggle with financial hardship. The apology from "Daddy" in the lyrics' final lines implies that they may be living off of their parents' money and feeling guilty for their irresponsible behavior.


Overall, "Beautiful Dirty Rich" is a commentary on the glamorous yet shallow side of living in the moment, with no desire to plan for the future or consider the consequences of one's actions.
