Government Hooker

This song is off Gaga’s Born This Way album. During an interview with Ryan Seacrest Gaga spoke about the song, “It was originally a hip-hop beat, but as we progressed we doubled the speed so it’s now a very hard hitting club track. Some of the lyrics are dirty but it is one of my favorite songs off the record.”  Later on Gaga spoke to MTV and said, “To me, that song is my favorite song, and it’s just a beast. I don’t even know how to explain it. [Born This Way] is not a pop album; it’s a pop masterpiece of music. If there was no category of pop music, you wouldn’t call it pop music. We were in this studio in Vegas, and I was playing some hip-hop stuff [for Gaga’s label boss Vince Herbert], and I ran across this [old beat I had made], and we were talking about faster songs, so I sped it up and I played it for Vince. He was like, ‘Whoa.’ She walked in, and I played it for her and [producer] Fernando [Garibay]. She laid it out in two seconds. She sang over the melody and tuned it up and put the chorus in. She finished it super quick. MTV said what they got from Gaga is, “The guy that’s actually talking, that’s her security guard. We were sitting there thinking how to make a computerized voice, so we were like, ‘Let’s get Pete in here.’ He’s got a super-thick Dutch accent, and he’s trying to read off paper. It was insane, and he just talks like that. That’s what it’s like working with Gaga. It’s like a f—ing supernova. When she walks into a room, things explode. She thinks of sh– that I can’t comprehend. It doesn’t make sense to me, and I’m a creative person. Working with her is totally different than anyone else I’ve ever done anything with. She’s the most hands-on person I’ve ever run into. She could walk into Steve Jobs’ office and tell him he’s doing Apple wrong, and he’d listen. As a producer, it’s super cool to be with somebody who generally cares and is fully involved.

 

Gaga tweeted that the song was inspired by Marlyn Monroe and other political mistresses.

 

This is an amazing song. A funny story about me listening to this song. During the summer I had to take the bus to the pentagon to get to my theater job in Shirlington. I was listening to this and my head phones came out and Goverment hooker started blasting at the pentagon. One women in a suit started dancing to it before I could get the head phones back in. It was HILARIOUS.  Here are the lyrics,

 

Gaga, ga oh-ah
Gaga, ga oh-oh-oh
(Io ritorne, io ritorne.
Io ritorne, io ritorne.)
Goverment Hooker, eh

I can be good,
If you just wanna be bad.
I can be cool,
If you just wanna be mad.
I can be anything,
I’ll be your everything,
Just touch me baby.
I don’t wanna be sad.

As long as I’m your hooker.
(Gov. : Back up and turn around)
As long as I’m your hooker.
(Gov. : Put your hands to the ground)
As long as I’m your hooker.

Hoo-ooookaaaaaaaa-er, government hooker.

I’m gonna drink my tears tonight,
I’m gonna drink my tears and cry,
‘Cause I know you love me baby,
I know you love me baby.

I could be girl,
Unless you want to be man.
I could be sex,
Unless you want to hold hands.
I could be anything,
I could be everything, (iku, iku)
I could be mom,
Unless you want to be dad. (oh mi papito)

As long as I’m your hooker.

Put your hands on me,
John. F. Kennedy,
I’ll make you squeal baby,
As long as you pay me.

I’m gonna drink my tears tonight,
I’m gonna drink my tears and cry,
‘Cause I know you love me baby,
I know you love me baby.
