I Was Born This Way‎



In realtà la prima esecuzione di questa canzone fu di tal Charles "Valentino" Harris ma fu portata al ‎successo nel 1977, diventando l’inno adella comunità gay americana, da Carl Bean (come ‎Valentino, anch’egli cantante della scuderia Motown), che in seguito divenne pastore protestante e ‎fondatore dell’Unity Fellowship Church Movement, una chiesa aperta a gay e bisessuali.‎
Il brano è stato recentemente riproposto e remixato da Pet Shop Boys e Jimmy Sommerville.‎
La canzone “Born This Way” di Lady Gaga è un omaggio a questo “anthem” gay.‎
Per un esame dettagliato edil corredo iconografico si veda la pagina dedicata su ‎‎Queer Music Heritage del giugno 2002.‎
I'm walking through life in nature's disguise
You laugh at me and you criticize
Just because I'm happy
I'm carefree
And I'm gay
Yes I'm gay
Tain't a fault tis a fact
I was born this way

You call me strange cause you don't understand
God's role for me in life's overall plan
Oh yes I'm happy
I'm carefree
And I'm gay
Yes I'm gay
Tain't a fault tis a fact
I was born this way

Now I won't judge you and don't you judge me
We're all the way nature meant us to be
Just human beings - born to be free
I can't be you and you can't be me
Tain't a fault tis a fact
Tain't a fault tis a fact
I was born this way

I've learned to hold my head up high
Not in scorn nor disgrace
Doing my thing individually
Entwined with the human race
Grooving in time - playing in space
Oh yes I'm happy
I'm carefree
And I'm gay
Yes I'm gay
Tain't a fault tis a fact
Yes, I was born this way

So be happy
Be carefree
Yeah ain't nothing wrong with being a little gay
Tain't a fault tis a fact
I was really really born this way

I'm happy
I'm carefree
Yeah I'm gay
