Judas Lyrics - Lady Gaga



Review The Song (11)


Oh-oh-oh-ohoo
I'm in love with Juda-as, Juda-as

Oh-oh-oh-ohoo
I'm in love with Juda-as, Juda-as

Judas Juda-a-a, Judas Juda-a-a, Judas Juda-a-a, Judas GaGa
Judas Juda-a-a, Judas Juda-a-a, Judas Juda-a-a, Judas GaGa


[Verse 1]
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, bring him down, down
A king with no crown, king with no crown


[Chorus]
I'm just a holy fool, oh baby he's so cruel
But I'm still in love with Judas, baby
I'm just a holy fool, oh baby he's so cruel
But I'm still in love with Judas, baby

Oh-oh-oh-ohoo
I'm in love with Juda-as, Juda-as

Oh-oh-oh-ohoo
I'm in love with Juda-as, Juda-as

Judas Juda-a-a, Judas Juda-a-a, Judas Juda-a-a, Judas GaGa


[Verse 2]
I couldn't love a man so purely
Even darkness forgave his crooked way
I've learned love is like a brick, you can
Build a house or sink a dead body
I'll bring him down, bring him down, down
A king with no crown, king with no crown


[Chorus]
I'm just a holy fool, oh baby he's so cruel
But I'm still in love with Judas, baby


I'm just a holy fool, oh baby he's so cruel
But I'm still in love with Judas, baby

Oh-oh-oh-ohoo
I'm in love with Juda-as, Juda-as

Oh-oh-oh-ohoo
I'm in love with Juda-as, Juda-as

Ew


[Bridge]
In the most Biblical sense,
I am beyond repentance
Fame hooker, prostitute wench, vomits her mind
But in the cultural sense
I just speak in future tense
Judas kiss me if offensed,
Or wear ear condom next time

I wanna love you,
But something's pulling me away from you
Jesus is my virtue,
Judas is the demon I cling to
I cling to

[Chorus]
I'm just a holy fool, oh baby he's so cruel
But I'm still in love with Judas, baby
I'm just a holy fool, oh baby he's so cruel
But I'm still in love with Judas, baby

Oh-oh-oh-ohoo
I'm in love with Juda-as, Juda-as

Oh-oh-oh-ohoo
I'm in love with Juda-as, Juda-as

Judas Juda-a-a, Judas Juda-a-a, Judas Juda-a-a, Judas GAGA
Judas Juda-a-a, Judas Juda-a-a, Judas Juda-a-a, Judas GAGA

"Judas" is a song by American recording artist Lady Gaga, from her second studio album Born This Way (2011). It was released by Interscope Records on April 15, 2011, four days ahead of its scheduled release. Written and produced by Lady Gaga and RedOne, "Judas" is a electro house and dance song about a woman in love with a man who betrayed her. It embodies the incidents that have haunted Gaga in the past, and its core meaning refers to the negative parts of her life that she can't escape. Gaga has further explained that the song was also about honoring one's inner darkness in order to bring oneself into the light. The artwork for the single was designed by Gaga in Microsoft Word. In spite of a polarizing impact on several religious groups, the song was generally well-received by critics, who likened the song to "Bad Romance" with some noting it should have should have been the album's lead single.

The song has a similar sound to Gaga's previous RedOne-produced tracks, including "Poker Face", "LoveGame", "Bad Romance", and "Alejandro". It contains three distinct hooks and a house-influenced break down. Gaga explained that the lines spoken during the breakdown talk about her as beyond redemption, regarding the traditional views of what a woman should be. Critics noted similarity between "Judas" and "Bad Romance", but praised the musical production of the song. "Judas" initially had a strong sales opening, but was less successful commercially in comparison to Gaga's previous singles. The song reached the top ten of the charts in most major music markets, and also reached the top of the charts in South Korea.

A music video for the song was filmed in April 2011, co-directed by Gaga and Laurieann Gibson and co-starring Norman Reedus. It has a Biblical storyline where Reedus played Judas Iscariot and Gaga played Mary Magdalene. The video portrays them as modern day missionaries going to Jerusalem. It included the Biblical story of Judas betraying Jesus, and ended with Gaga as Magdalene getting stoned to death. Before its release, the Catholic League condemned Gaga for the alleged use of religious imagery and her role in the video. However, critics generally praised the video, not finding any offensive content. The video was nominated for two awards at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards. Gaga has performed "Judas" on a number of television shows, including The Graham Norton Show, Saturday Night Live, Good Morning America's "Summer Concert Series", the French X Factor as well as on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

talented? | Reviewer: Jessica | 9/14/11

I agree with you M. Many people are indenial about her musicianship. People just can't see past all the outfits. I honestly believe that behind all the costumes, there is a talented musician many have yet to see.



Not religion | Reviewer: M | 9/6/11

This song has nothing to do with religion...Its about loving someone who does you wrong every time but still you keep coming back...she uses the bible as a metaphor...This woman is talented and most people are in denial about it....People who makes this a religion issue..are alienated from whats going on in the world !



I'm going to put this rudely.. | Reviewer: Anon | 8/7/11

Quit taking religion so seriously and acting so butthurt. 'Oh no, someone made something I don't agree with. Better act like a little bitch about it!'
I'm Christian, and I like this song. People need to just chill the fuck out. I can also appreciate that she does what she wants, despite how 'controversial' it might be. That's her duty as an artist; push that motherfucking envelope.



get over yourselves | Reviewer: Rissa-Belle | 7/10/11

to be completely and totally honest ; i dont believe this song was about devil worship or worship of any kind , just (as the halcyon so intelligently put) knowing what you should strive for in a relationship , but ignoring it because you want what you want . if it was about devil worship , it probably wouldnt be a song at all . so keep it in your pants , and try to calm down . and im NOT just saying this because im a little monster ; im saying tis because its wrong to call someone they arent . how would you like it if i called you a herpes stricken whore , tiffany ?



Love it | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/19/11

I love the analysis that halcyon gave. Very great description of the song. This song and video is conpareible to the controversy that Madonna's Like a Virgin brought. And I love both artists. Rock on GaGa!!



annoyed | Reviewer: Serenata | 6/11/11

Jay, I completely agree with you. This woman is in no way a good role model. I'm sick of her bull crap. Pop art this, and pop art that. Nothing is artistic about her. This trash is just an addition to that crappy repertoire of hers. Music, what happened to you?



idiots | Reviewer: SickAmongThePure | 5/10/11


she tell it how it is... doesnt care what anyone thinks. besides all you fucking bible thumpers dont listen to this kind of thing anyways. so keep your noses where they belong. shut between a bible.

gaga can do what she wants. and i have great respect for her doing so...



Not Devil Worship | Reviewer: M | 5/8/11

Actually, it could be taken to mean that she is a sinner even though she wants to be virtuous...just like all of us are.

BTW, can you people actually read the bible before you go making omments about what it says? Judas does not equal "Devil" or "Satan".



Fail | Reviewer: Jay | 5/6/11

Tiffany: I think it was obvious from the start from her stances on certain issues and especially by the way she dresses that she is not a good influence. Regardless, I agree with you. Lady Gaga isn't even what I would consider good music, no matter what the lyrics are.



"This song is benign..." | Reviewer: the halcyon | 5/5/11

A Satanist?! Surely you jest. The song uses a metaphor to convey the narrator's feelings about a harmful relationship with a lover. The lover is represented by Judas, and his relative antithesis, the Christ, is therefore what the narrator knows she should strive for in a relationship. However, she is unwilling to leave her current partner ("clinging" to Judas) for a better man, even though her current partner is "so cruel." My basis for this analysis is founded primarily upon a statement near the end, "Jesus is my virtue, and Judas is the demon I cling to." Gaga here calls her lover a "demon," and refers to herself as a "fool," implying that she is wrong to stay with such a bad person (for lack of better words). Truly, it can be argued that the song's metaphor is in poor taste, particularly considering its release during Holy Week. I would presume this was only to make the song relevant and controversial, as this is how the modern celebrity attracts attention to herself is it not? That, and wearing silly clothes. Timing excepted, this song is benign unless the public insists on making an issue of it.
