Born This Way Lyrics
Just put your paws up
'Cause you were born this way, baby
My mama told me when I was young
We're all born superstars
She rolled my hair, put my lipstick on
In the glass of her...

Ok, she may say to love yourself for who you are and God will love you to, but you need to consider something...
I am not saying that you cannot listen to this song or that I hate Lady Gaga, I am just putting this out. Now, if I killed people, and it made me happy, I loved to do it and accepted myself for it, and I was "born this way", will God still accept me into heaven? Absolutely not! Why? Because murder is sin... Just something to think about when interpreting lyrics.

Um this is the most OBVIOUS message in a song ever. It needs no explanation: Be proud of who you are and show your true colors.
But for those are confused about the beginning "It doesn't matter if you love him or capital Him".
I'm positive the capital him is NOT SATAN, as a lot of people think, which is really stupid.
She means it's okay if you're gay/straight and you are attracted to men ("it doesn't matter if you love him").
Something I think a lot of people are confused about is the "capital him" part. Gaga does not mean H-I-M, she means the first letter is capitalized, the others are lowercased, resulting in "Him". This is referring to God. If you know anything about religion/ grammar, you should know that when referring to God, you always capitalize He or Him.
In conclusion, the first line is referring to appecting either one's preferences to "him" (men, whether you're gay or straight or bi) or one's adoration of God ("capital Him").

"It doesn't matter if you love him or capital HIM"
I always thought that meant either you are in love with somebody regardless of what others think or you love the band HIM (Finnish rock band) and don't care what others have to say on the type of music you choose to listen to. She is saying that love is love no matter what. I never understood how this song lead people to get deep into religion.

I think she wants us all to feel comfortable in our own skin and you cant help wat you attracted to just like you cant help being short or tall,or black or white,or girl or boy. Follow @schizz01 on twitter if you agree and after just dance itll be ok ;)

According to the bible:
God hates people who claim that they are not what God created them to be.
Example, He created you as a "male" but you claim you are a "girl" or a "gay."

What if your a paedofile... and born that way?
just cos you are born a certain way doesnt make it correct.

This song is all about loving who you are. whether your straight, gay, bi, or trassexual it doesn't matter. just love yourself for who you are.

This is an easy one. It doesn't matter if you're straight, gay, bi, or trassexual, you just have to love yourself for who you are. And the most important thing is that God will love you for who you are. You just have to believe in what you believe in. For example, if you are gay and someone you know doesn't believe in gay rights, you just have to know what you believe in, not what some else tells you to believe in.

I think that the song's about accepting yourself and being who you are, no matter what problems others may have with you, because "God makes no mistakes" and therefore you should accept yourself and others as you/they are.

Uhm...to the last person that commented..."infernal" means "of or relating to hell" o_O that's not God

She is mocking God. She uses the term God makes no mistakes. He made her perfect but she changed into her bad ways. she admits to being high when she writes her music. God didnt make her into a monster. she did.

This whole thing about gays going to hell doesn't really have anything to do with the song but ohs wells.
I'm not religious, never have been never will be (I choose to believe in reincarnation and karma over god heaven and hell but I'm not a Buddhist) but even if god DID exist I honestly do thing he can send people to hell for being gay when they have no choice in the matter.

i think this song is about her genitals and that she was born that way
anonymous Jun 26th, 2011 6:14am report
It doesn't matter if you love him or capital Him. Capital Him is God. To us christians that is how you spell it to seperate it from other gods. And yes technically you are born gay because God knows what you are going to be and he knows what will happen in your life. So get over it and if being gay was a sin why would God even make it??? God wants all the people he can get to go to heaven. And I love how she points out every like issue. Gay trans and all that. I gotta hand it to you Gaga those are some powerful lyrics!

i think the song means that you should accept who you are, no matter what the society thinks.
