Sam Tsui - Born This Way Lyrics




Hey-yeah...
I was born this way
Hey

My mama told me when I was young
We're all born superstars
She rolled her hair, put her lipstick on
In the glass of her boudoir

"There's nothin' wrong with lovin' who you are"
She said, "'Cause He made you perfect, babe"
"So hold your head up, boy 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 lose yourself in regret,
Just love yourself and you're set
I'm on the right track, baby
I was born this way
(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 other way
Baby, I was born this way
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 a drag, just be a queen

Give yourself prudence and love your friends
Subway kid, rejoice the truth
In the religion of the insecure
I must be myself, respect my youth

Yeah
Another lover is not a sin
Believe in capital H-I-M
I love my life, I love this record and
Mi amore vole fe yah

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 lose 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 other way
Baby, I was born this way
I'm on the right track, baby
I was born this way

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 lose yourself in regret,
Just love yourself and you're set
I'm on the right track, baby
I was born this way, yeah!

Ooo, there ain't no other way
Baby, I was born this way
Baby, I was born this way
Ooo, there ain't other way
Baby, I was born this way
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!

  1. René Benoit Brisson

    Excellent!

  2. Joep

    Considering this was made in 2012, I'm really proud of Kurt and Sam for choosing to keep in the lgbt and poc parts. I've been going through different covers of this song and get super bummed out when they skip that part.

  3. Annamaria Szabo

    Loptad Gagától kisfiam :-) :-)....

  4. Garrium Whirwart

    ❤ Love it! Thanks a lot for covering this song❤

    Don't be a drag, just be a queen
    Don't be don't be don't be

    Give yourself prudence
    And love your friends
    So we can 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)

  7. satavvibes

    This is why I love your video because you added the lgbt line and im lesbian so I really do
    appreciate that alot thank you. <3





    edit: made me emotional the expression when you sang it, it was like you
    supported it big time.

  8. The Immortal Sun-kun

    0:23 Aww, why change the lyrics? 😔

  9. UniquelyStan

    I had the biggest crush on this guy back in the day, turns out he's a year older than me and gay too. Damn, I was born in the wrong country.

  10. Beats Up

    His soothing smile is the most perfect harmony!!!!!!!

  11. Michael Rougers

    ( no matter if you are gay straight bi lesbian transgender live baby you’re born this way !! ❤️

  12. Nunticha Piromkraipak

    2018 :-):-):-):-)

  13. Nic Petersen

    Sam tsui wasn't always as good as he is now

  14. Catherine C

    Wow I enjoy the way you sing!

  15. Paxloria

    Pretty awesome! Love your post! Have you given any thought to trying out for THE VOICE?

  16. Maritza Lara

    Love your voice.

  17. Maritza Lara

    You sang with Peter!

  18. Chubs Hey

    Im enjoying the song as well as the video 😊😊😊😊 its refreshing

  19. Tiger Yin

    Note that Sam is gay.

  20. Todd Jenkins

    Kurt, your musicality on the piano just blows my mind. You're self taught to boot!!!!

  21. Kluya Aether

    like it? love it! <3

  22. Princess Cheese

    My little sister is mtf this describes her

  23. musics deluxe

    why is everyone proud of him saying "gay straight or bi"?
    he said "transgendered life" too...
    so does that mean you hate trans? :(

    Hunter Kun

    *Even if this is a year late, I'm gonna say it anyway.*

    I think it's because of the others that covered this song, is because they took out that lyric. It's why people are happy about it, just because they aren't saying anything about the trans part doesn't mean they hate trans.

  24. Harshit Gujral

    awesome!!-)

  25. Jelsa _ Stylinson

    And now he is married to a man :3

  40. Miles Upshur

    This channel is life. :)

  41. tw _fan

    Orangeninja5000

    It's news like this that makes you smile

    Ken Green

    Sam's husband's name is Casey Breves and they were married on April 16, 2016.

    Lariza Reyes

    Damn! All the good ones were taken 😭

    Golden lotus

    People have done that?
    What kind of cover is that!

  42. ทิพรัตน์ ทะเเพงพันธ์

    😊😊😊

  43. Cheon Sa Lee

    I love all of Sam's covers *-* He's amazing and such an inspiration for me as an amateur singer! <3
    For some reason 2:49-2:54 listening to him saying that just sent a wave of happiness to my body! :) I love this song and I love his cover, but that part just had a special something for me <3

  44. Serena Pozzatello

    Good memories 😢

  45. PipesPiano 12

    So glad you were "born this way" Sam, you're perfect =)

  46. Michael Dermer

    I fucking love this

  47. Bruh Bruh

    That piano............

  48. omega

    I LUV THE SONG'S MEANING!!!!111

  49. omega

    The people that say "COOL I'M BI!!!!111" really tick me off. Not that there's much wrong with that,it's just that this song isn't about that. It's about being yourself. Not saying "FUCK U HOMOPHOBES".








    Anyway,WSBLU anyone?

    omega

    +orangeiceice12 Well.....that's the main part anyway. Even tho..............it does say that a lot. Just ignore me. I'm a stupid 9 year old girl. :P

    omega

    +orangeiceice12 What I mean is.....its just annoying that everyone is saying "I'm bi". I mean,why would anyone really care? It's pretty common for there to be bi's everywhere.

    Michael Dermer

    I totally understand you. it gets annoying

    Mikayla Anne

    It’s not common at all. Don’t your think we like finding a safe place where we can just be ourselves?

  50. Ava Rose

    I love this song and I love your voice
    keep it up. :) <3

  51. CERULEAN

    I'm rewatching all these all old covers again, and I rmb why i loved them . Samily forever <3

    Demi Muse

    I just joined like a week ago but I'm currently doing the same thing. Rewatching amazing Youtuber artists seems to be my biggest habit. xD

  52. Lauren Peterman

    no matter gay straight or bi is probably my favorite lyric of all time because im bi

    Hannah Hall

    @Panic! Treasure also the lesbian part

    Adonis G

    Listen to Logic - Black Spiderman

    Hasan Altay

    Same same sameee

    Lauren Peterman 🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈

  53. Lucas Geiger

    "gay, straight, or bi" phhh ASEXUALS UNITE

    armorhide406

    +Lauren Peterman Yeah but that's not helpful. Bi's get erasure, but asexuals even more so. Support each other, 'cause infighting isn't helping anyone.

    armorhide406

    Or you know, there isn't enough space in the lyrics/tempo. Doesn't he sing lesbian, transgender life anyways?

    Lauren Peterman

    @armorhide406 yeah later on in it

    Captain Sneet

    **chanting** Asexuals unite

    Panic! Treasure

    @armorhide406 This song was before LGBT became the alphabet. I hate to break it to people but asexulity is not LGBT.

  54. paul wilson

    love it

  55. Unicorn Demon

    The very first 6 seconds of this song sound like the intro of another pop song, but I can't put my finger on which one it is.

    Unicorn Demon

    +Unicorn Demon Listening to it a few times over, the intro to this cover sounds vaguely similar to parts of La Roux's song Bulletproof. The resemblance is slim, but for some reason that's what it reminds me of.

  56. Scott Murray

    I really like this video!
    Sam Tsui and Kurt Hugo, please do not start getting tattoos and/or "body modifications".  You are both really cute and talented without them.
    The absence of them if a very large part of the attraction to your talents for me.

    Simone Ramello

    +Scott Murray whats wrong with tattoos?

  57. Mellena Brave

    You are really the first person who sang the full song. Thank you so much

  58. Vidushi Sahai

    Oh my god..I loved this..!! :-D <3

    Corn Fed

    Some covers are lame and leave it out. Kudos to them for sticking to the original lyrics.  

    iamlikeme

    Now all we need them to do is sing "Everyone Is Gay -- A Great Big World"

    That would make my day, or maybe my week :3

    snackajack117

    @Corn Fed Lame and...kind of homophobic?

    Justin Bennett

    +snackajack117 I think "them" is Sam and Kurt. He's saying kudos that "they" left the lyrics in.

  83. Morita Neko

    kurt น่ารักมาก เก่งเวอร์อ่ะ อยากรู้จัง ทำอะไรไม่ได้บ้าง รักมากค่ะ>< Sam เสียงดีสุดๆ ความสามารถสูงทั้งคู่เลย มาเมืองไทยเร็วๆน้าาาา>////<
