Judas Lyrics

Whoa, I'm in love with Juda-ah-as, Juda-ah-as
Whoa, I'm in love with Juda-ah-as, Juda-ah-as
Judas, Juda-ah-as, Judas, Juda-ah-as
Judas, Juda-ah-as, Judas, Gaga

Judas, Juda-ah-as, Judas, Juda-ah-as
Judas, Juda-ah-as, Judas, Gaga

When he calls 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

Ahh-oh, ahh-oh, I'll bring him down, bring him down, down
Ahh-oh, ahh-oh, a king with no crown, king with no crown

I'm just a Holy Fool
Oh, baby, it's so cruel
But I'm still in love with Judas, baby
I'm just a Holy Fool
Oh, baby, it's so cruel
But I'm still in love with Judas, baby

Whoa, I'm in love with Juda-ah-as, Juda-ah-as
Whoa, I'm in love with Juda-ah-as, Juda-ah-as
Judas, Juda-ah-as, Judas, Juda-ah-as
Judas, Juda-ah-as, Judas, Gaga

I couldn't love a man so purely
Even prophets forgave his goofy way
I've learned love is like a brick, you can
Build a house or sink a dead body

Ahh-oh, ahh-oh, I'll bring him down, bring him down, down
Ahh-oh, ahh-oh, a king with no crown, king with no crown

I'm just a Holy Fool
Oh, baby, it's so cruel
But I'm still in love with Judas, baby
I'm just a Holy Fool
Oh, baby, it's so cruel
But I'm still in love with Judas, baby

Whoa, I'm in love with Juda-ah-as, Juda-ah-as
Whoa, I'm in love with Juda-ah-as, Juda-ah-as

(Ew)

In the (ew) 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 offenced or wear an ear condom next time

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

Just a Holy Fool
Oh, baby, it's so cruel
But I'm still in love with Judas, baby
I'm just a Holy Fool
Oh, baby (just a), it's so cruel (Holy Fool)
But I'm still in love with Judas, baby

Whoa, I'm in love with Juda-ah-as, Juda-ah-as
Whoa, I'm in love with Juda-ah-as, Juda-ah-as
Judas, Juda-ah-as, Judas, Juda-ah-as
Judas, Juda-ah-as, Judas, Gaga

What is the Meaning of Judas?

I have had a love-hate relationship with this song. It is extremely catchy, but it feels morally wrong at the surface. The more I think about it, the more I believe this is about a woman who loves the wrong type of man. She wants to love a good man and be a good person, but she has fallen in love with an evil person. This is not the love that can build a house - it is the love that sinks a dead body. It is a song about self-destruction. I also think that Lady Gaga may have written this to be controversial.
