The Lyrics

I LOVE Lady GaGa, Mother Monster, but also have a great sense of humor!
Intro:
It doesn't matter if you love Mother Monster, or capital M-M
Just get your money out
'Cause I was born to be played, baby

Verse:
My mama told me when she was young
Madonna was her superstar
She sent me to private school, then NYU
Saying “Imitate her and you’ll go far”
"There's nothin wrong with becoming a megastar"
She said, "'cause Madonna changed the industry, babe"
"So bleach your hair, get naked, do the bizarre
There‘s nothin standing in your way"

Chorus:
I'm bankable in my way
'Cause Def Jam made a mistake
I'm on the fast track baby
I was born to be played
I have no regrets
Showing off my ass and my breasts
I'm on the fast track baby
I was born to be played

Post-chorus:
Ooo Who cares what people say?
Baby, just buy and push play
Baby I was born to be played
Ooo Who cares what people say?
Baby, just buy and push play
I'm on the fast track baby
I was born to be played

Don't be a critic - just be a teen
Don't be a critic - just be a teen
Don't be a critic - just be a teen
Don't think!

Spend your allowance
Facebook your friends
Sorry kid, this is the truth
In the economics of the industry
I must whore myself, exploit my youth
Luring young consumers is not a crime
Believe capital M-M (hey hey hey)

I promote my body, I promote this record, and
Amo i vostri soldi (I love your money)

Repeat chorus + post-chorus

Bridge:
Don't be a critic, just be a teen
Spend all your cash, its all green
Use plastic, cash, or even check
Your Megastar will not forget
Whether economic reality
Left you unemployed, foreclosed, or free
Run out and buy my music today
'Cause baby I was born to be played
No matter I-pod, CD,
or even MP3
I'm on the fast track baby
And it’s all about me
No matter plastic, cash, or check
In stores or on the Internet
I'm on the fast track baby
Mother Monster is set

Repeat chorus + post-chorus

Outro/refrain:
I was born to be played hey!
I was born to be played hey!
I'm on the fast track baby
I was born to be played hey!

I was born to be played hey!
I was born to be played hey!
I'm on the fast track baby
I was born to be played hey!


Same appeal to GAYs, but better sales today
Same appeal to GAYs, but better sales today
