yeah,  well,
she was nothin’  more
and nothin’  less
than what god had made her
the same as you and me

doesn’t matter
how she got where she is
only matters that she got there

life may’ve worn her down
caused her pain
and disappointment
but deep inside
she never gave up hope

and isn’t that what’s most important?
holdin’  onto hope
can get us through anything
even if  we have nothin’  else
until our dyin’  day

she was nothin’  more
and nothin’  less
than what god had made her
the same as you and me

“Born This Way”   Lady Gaga

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 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

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-
I’m on the 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!

Give yourself prudence
And love your friends
Subway kid, rejoice your truth
In the religion of the insecure
I must be my self, 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 (Love needs faith)

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 was born this way hey!
I was born this way hey!
I’m on the right track baby
I was born this way hey!

I was born this way hey!
I was born this way hey!
I’m on the right track baby
I was born this way hey!

  1. Love this!
    May your 2013 be a shiny one, thank you for making my 2012 much nicer than it would’ve been *huge sparkly hugs*

  2. Oh honey…if one can’t be a little better than the rest, what are high end department stores for? ;-)

  3. truth, we are no more and no less than each other, though some think that, act like that…karma has a way of taking care of them…smiles.
