Born This Way Lyrics

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're all born superstars
She rolled my hair, put my lipstick on
In the glass of her...

    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.

    Born this way is about being okay with who you are, no matter if you've faced racism, sterotypes, radical christians throwing the Bible in your face, or bullying. Gaga is saying its fine and natural to be yourself and to be different.

    ITS NOT (just) ABOUT HOMOS/TRANIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Gaga said so in an interview. Its about acepting your self for who you are, wheather your poor or rich, your race, if your gay, maybe even if you stupid or a brainiac, have a disabilty like dislexia or DS or diabities, or just lack self confidence cos people say your fat or ugly, as long as you think your beautiful other people will start to see it to.
    This song realy sppeaks to me cos i have dislexia and ADHD and people juste to make fun of me for it.

    okay . I had to come here because I am seeing post on my facebook about the meaning of Born This Way Lyrics and of course it is pointing out that Lady Gaga is a believer of Lucifer and the Devil.

    Who I am: I'm a Christian (Straight)

    Jesus words about Gay (Eunich):MATTHEW 19:11-12

    What I think the meaning of the Lyrics:
    Just as obvious as the words that are said is that a person must first learn to love themselves. And accept who they are when they are able to know and make decisions about who they are in life.

    My Christian view on the Lyrics and Lady Gaga: I have to confess I do not know Lady Gaga personally so I can not make judgements on her based on what I know. I don't think her lyrics are clear on who she mentions as Capital H-I-M, but I know in the Bible when there is a Capital H-I-M it mentions God or Jesus Christ, so it could be that Gaga is also referring to the same thing because she mentions God doesn't make mistakes on the lyrics as well, and the Bible supports that.
    Bottom Line for me is Jesus own words of God's greatest commandment is put into this "Love God with all your heart, all your soul and all your mind. The 2nd is equally important Love your neighbor as yourself."
    In this case if a person does not know how to love himself how can he know how to love others. But we all know how to love our self that's why we should love others in that same way.
    And God do I love myself.

    add me on facebook, just mention you found me here . ILY

    Okay, in this song . . Lady Gaga is talking about being proud of who you are. She's telling you not to change yourself because someone else doesn't like you appearance. What only matters is what you think of yourself. She's talking about being proud of where you come from and how you look. No-one else's opinions matters because, they can't judge you because you are who you are. Only GOD can judge you. But, not even because God doesn't judge people by their appearances, only by their character and attitude. You can be Gay, Bisexual, Straight, Transexual or whatever, you need to be proud of what YOU are. You are YOU - Thats NEVER Going to change. You don't need to change yourself because one person doesn't like you- YOU are YOU , who cares about everybody else? You are BEAUTIFUL - in your OWN way. If you are proud the way you are, then everybody will grow to be proud of you and think your beautiful TOO.

    Now, alot of the comments i see are saying, "weather your gay, bisexual, lesbian, or straight, God lves you for who you are" but in 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 states "Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God." (NIV). This states, that if you are a homosexual, "you will not inherit the kingdom of God" meaning, that it dosent take you to heaven being gay. I would say this song is sreligiously incorrect.

    Performer Gaga is already controversial at home. Now, apparently, she is thought to be offensive overseas as well. Her brand-new record "Born This Way," which is already platinum, has been banned in Lebanon. The record has currently sold 1.1 million albums in the U.S. I read this here: Lady Gaga album banned in Lebanon, newstype.com

    Yes I believe the first "him" is refering to what western culture refers to as "God" and the H.I.M in my opinion refers to Satan aka His Infernal Majesty. Cause I believe she is trying to include everyone in the spectrum of those who deserve respect.

    dont you people get it?
    "it doesnt matter if you love him, or CAPITAL H-I-M" God = him, satan = H-I-M

    if you dont believe me, then put satan into this line: "a different lover is not a sin, believe CAPITAL H-I-M"
    of course a diff lover is not a sin for the devil, he's all about sin, put 2 and 2 together idiots

    According to what I think The song is what Lady Gaga said that she was bullied extremly harshly in her high school.She said that she was so very frightened that used to wore I mask in school.She even said that she still wears a mask but not in embaressment or humiliation but in pride.

    God makes no mistakes and he has a special plan for everyone. But just because you were born a certain way doesn't mean that you are still on the right track. Everyone is born with a certain set of blessings AND henderances that we have to learn to be thankful for and live through/learn from/grow from, respectively. Christians should be loving toward everyone (not just themselves and their friends- "just love yourself and you'll be set"- sorta selfish) whether they are straight or gay, but not peoples sin, and acting on homosexual feelings is a sin. I have struggled with feelings toward the same sex since I was 9, but I have complete peace knowing that I have been obedient to the life Christ called me to. It is a temptation, not who I am. What I am is a Christian and I am very happy with the life that Christ has blessed me with.
