"Born This Way" is a song written by Lady Gaga, Fernando Garibay, DJ White Shadow, and Jeppe Laursen. The song serves as the lead single from Gaga's album, Born This Way. Written and produced by Gaga, Garibay, Laursen, and White Shadow, it was developed while Gaga was on the road with The Monster Ball Tour. Inspired by the 1990s empowering music for women and the gay community, Gaga explained that "Born This Way" was her freedom song. She had sung part of the chorus at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards in 2010 and announced the song as the lead single from the album. The single was released on February 11, 2011.

On March 7, 2011, Katy Perry performed an acoustic cover of the song as a part of a medley, along with "Only Girl (In the World)", "Big Pimpin'", and "Whip My Hair", during the California Dreams Tour in Paris. The performance was accompanied by two guitarists playing acoustic guitars.

Lyrics

Katy Perry's version

My mama told me when I was young
We are all superstars

She rolled my hair and put my lipstick on
In the glass of her boudoir

“There’s nothing wrong with lovin’ who you are”
“‘Cause he made you perfect, babe”

“So hold your head and you’ll go far,
Listen to me when I say”

You're beautiful in this way
‘Cause God makes no mistakes
You're on the right track baby
You were Born This Way

Don’t hide yourself in regret
Just love yourself and you’re set
You're on the right track baby
You were Born This Way

Ooo there ain’t no other way
Baby you were Born This Way
Baby you were Born This Way
Ooo there ain’t no other way
Baby you were Born This Way
Baby you were Born This Way

Lady Gaga's version

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 lovin’ 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

Ooo there ain’t no other way
Baby I was Born This Way
Baby I was Born This Way
Ooo 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!

Give yourself prudence
And love your friends
Subway kid, 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 (Same DNA)

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

Ooo there ain’t no other way
Baby I was Born This Way
Baby I was Born This Way
Ooo 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!

Church
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

Ooo there ain’t no other way
Baby I was Born This Way
Baby I was Born This Way
Ooo there ain’t no other way
Baby I was born-
I’m on the right track baby
I was Born This Way

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!

Same DNA,
But Born This Way.
Same DNA,
But Born This Way.
