Lady Gaga Lyrics

Do What U Want Lyrics
I feel good, I walk alone
But then I trip by myself and I fall
I, I stand up, and then I'm okay
But then you print that shit
That makes me want to scream

So do what you want
What you want with my body
Do what you want
Don't stop, let's party
Do what you want
What you want with my body
Do what you want
What you want with my body

Write what you want
Say what you want bout me
If you're wondering
Know that I'm not sorry

Do what you want
What you want with my body
What you want with my body

You can't have my heart
And you won't use my mind but
Do what you want (with my body)
Do what you want with my body
You can't stop my voice cause
You don't own my life but
Do what you want (with my body)
Do what you want (with my body)

Early morning, longer nights
Tom Ford, private flights
Crazy schedule, fast life
I wouldn't trade it in
'Cause it's our life (now let's slow it down...)

I could be the drink in your cup
I could be the green in your blunt
Your "pusha" man, ya I got what you want
You wanna escape all of the crazy shit
You're the Marilyn, I'm the president
And I'd love to hear you sing, girl

Do what I want
Do what I want with your body
Do what I want
Do what I want with your body
Back of the club, taking shots, getting naughty
No invitations, it's a private party
Do what I want
Do what I want with your body
Do what I want
Do what I want with your body
Ya we taking these haters and we roughin' 'em up
And we laying a cut like we don't give a f*ck

You can't have my heart
And you won't use my mind but
Do what you want (with my body)
Do what you want with my body
You can't stop my voice cause
You don't own my life but
Do what you want (with my body)
Do what you want (with my body)

Sometimes I'm scared I suppose
If you ever let me go
I would fall apart
If you break my heart
So just take my body
And don't stop the party

You can't have my heart
And you won't use my mind but
Do what you want (with my body)
Do what you want with my body
You can't stop my voice cause
You don't own my life but
Do what you want (with my body)
Do what you want (with my body)

Do what you want with me
What you want with my body
Do what you want with me
What you want with my body
Do what you want with me
What you want with my body
Do what you want with me
What you want with my body

Do What U Want Info:

Do What U Want features guest vocals from R. Kelly for Lady Gaga's third studio album, Artpop (2013); it appears as the seventh track on the album. The song was written by Lady Gaga, Paul "DJ White Shadow" Blair, R. Kelly, Martin Bresso and William Grigahcine.

"Do What U Want" was presented to Gaga by Blair around two years before. They developed and worked on the song until 2013, when it was finally added to the track-list of Artpop after adding Kelly's vocals. Musically the song is an R&B and synthpop track containing '80s throbbing synths and an electronic beat. Lyrically, the song is straightforward and finds Gaga telling off her detractors with the sentiment that her thoughts, dreams, and feelings are her own, no matter what one does with or says about her body.

Gaga told the story behind this song during a listening party at Berlin's famed Berghain club. "I've been living in Chicago and spending a lot of time there, and that's where R. Kelly hails from," she explained. "I was working on ARTPOP and I wrote ['Do What U Want'] on tour. It was about my obsession with the way people view me. I have always been an R. Kelly fan and actually it is like an epic pastime in the Haus of Gaga that we just get f---ed up and play R. Kelly. This is a real R&B song and I [said 'I] have to call the king of R&B and I need his blessing.' It was a mutual love. He's a very, very, very talented man. I'm so excited to be on this album with him.

Lady Gaga recalls one day, her mother called her and talked about some news article which were discussing about Gaga putting on weight. The singer was enraged and found such journalism extremely shallow. She decided that the song would take a stance on such incidents and she would dictate whatever she wants to portray instead of being transparent in front of the world.
