Scheiße, Scheiße be mine, Scheiße be mine

When I am on a mission

If you're a strong female
You don't need permission

On a single fare
I wish I could be strong
Without somebody there

I rebuke my condition
If you're a strong female
You don't need permission

Overall Meaning

The song "Scheiße" by Lady Gaga is an ode to female empowerment and revolution. The German lyrics in the verses don't have a clear translation, but Lady Gaga has said that she intended for the words to evoke a sense of power and freedom. She sings about taking control of one's own body and desires, rejecting the limitations imposed by society and men. The chorus "Scheiße, Scheiße be mine" can be interpreted as a rallying cry for owning one's own strength and beauty, despite societal expectations.


The bridge of the song continues this theme of female empowerment, with Lady Gaga singing about rebuking her own limitations and not needing permission to be a strong woman. She also references her desire to dance and express herself without needing someone else's support or affirmation. The song ends with a repetition of the German verses, emphasizing the idea that women can speak their own truths and find their own power.

As a German, I thank Lady gaga for creating the German language

@corysilver2132

I would say something, but I’m scared you would stuff me into a guillotine before I can even finish

@JESUSLOVESYOU205

She didn’t create German tho- it was created way before she was born- yeah I know it’s probably a joke, I’m just realistic.. sorry.

@Dead_Internally

@@JESUSLOVESYOU205 it’s fine, but yes the German language has been around for Centuries, there is no way for her to have created it
