The Popdust Files: judas, lady gaga

UPDATE: While the below lyrics have some legit lines—as leaked by Gaga—within, apparently the whole package is a fraud concocted by an overzealous Little Monster. Here’s hoping that the faker-outer gets sentenced to at least ten Hail Mother Monsters for this sin against Gagadom!

After teasing the lyrics to the second single from Born This Way during her chat with Google, a bit of poetry that alleges to be the full set of lyrics to Lady Gaga’s “Judas” has leaked online. Gaga’s camp has yet to confirm or deny whether these words are the real-deal lyrics to the song, but whoever came up with them sure has an intimate knowledge of Catholicism and all its intricacies. Bloodstained rosaries, foot-washing with hair, and the triple-time betrayal are all there—although somehow there’s no double-entendre reference to a cock’s crowing, which seems like a glaring oversight.

Dear Judas
My beloved, you belong to me
No more backstabbing please
Your blood-colored beads
Jealousy, Envy, Insanity

My evil Judas (death and vanity)
My evil Judas (death and vanity)
Let go of me, you’re poison ivy
My evil Judas (death and vanity)
Please let go
You’re poison ivy to me

As much as I obsess
About the sick things you do
Follow you around and stalk your every move
I know you’re laughing behind closed doors
But no more
‘Cause I’m just a holy fool
Oh baby he’s so cruel
But I’m still in love with Judas, baby

Uggh (death and vanity)

When he comes to me, I am ready
I’ll wash his feet with my hair if he needs
Forgive him when his tongue lies through his brain
Even after three times he betrays me
I’ll bring him down, a king with no crown
Judas, look what have you done
My heart bleeds and you think it’s fun?

My evil Judas (death and vanity)
My evil Judas (death and vanity)
Let go of me, you’re poison ivy
My evil Judas (death and vanity)
Please let go
You’re poison ivy to me

Second verse, same as the first
Your Bible won’t save you now
From the glares of the everlasting light
Remember those hot nights where you lied and lied on my bed
Stabbed me in the back
Let my blood trickle on your rose thorns
But he came and whispered in my ear and left me torn
‘Cause I’m just a holy fool
Oh baby, he’s so cruel
But I’m still in love with Judas, baby

Uggh (death and vanity)

When he comes to me, I am ready.
I’ll wash his feet with my hair if he needs
Forgive him when his tongue lies through his brain
Even after three times he betrays me
I’ll bring him down, a king with no crown
Judas, look what have you done
My heart bleeds and you think it’s fun?

Oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no,
Jealousy, Envy, Insanity,
Misery, Rosary, Sunday,
Trinity, Infinite, Judas
I love you baby
Signed, Mother Monsteriety

My evil Judas (death and vanity)
my evil Judas (death and vanity)
Let go of me
You’re poison ivy
My evil Judas (death and vanity)
Please let go
You’re poison ivy to me

They seem pretty legit to me—even the awkward construction “Mother Monstereity,” which does not really roll off the tongue (or even the frontal lobe) but which probably was penned by her nonetheless. Sure, the self-branding might be a bit awkwardly phrased, it’s coming from the same person who topped the charts with the line “In the religion of the insecure I must: be myself, respect my youth,” after all.
