  • 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
    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
    So we can 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

    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
    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
    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
    Right track, baby I was born this way

  • ZoriaI feel like “put ur paws up” is for the furry community but that’s just me
  • Richard from IndianaLady Gaga looks like Maria Callas
  • George from Vancouver, CanadaNow I get it -- she spent her teen years slutting out with any man who wanted her, sometimes for love, sometimes for money; her artist motif is all about denying her femaleness that attracted so many dickhead users. . .
  • Roman from Barrie, OnAfter seeing one of her 10 year old fans performing this song on Facebook or was it Utube, she contacted the girl, invited her to join and perform with her at a concert in Toronto (which the girl did) and also created some spin-off appearances on TV variety shows.
  • Wade from Katy, TxA spokesperson for Madonna has said that Madonna never sent Gaga an email with approval.
