  • Song Lyrics:
    My mama told me when I was hatched
    Act like a superstar
    Save your allowance; buy a bubble dress
    And someday you will go far
    Now on red carpets, well, I'm hard to miss
    The press follows everywhere I go
    I'll poke your eye out with a dress like this
    Back off and enjoy the show!

    I'm sure my critics will say it's a grotesque display
    Well, they can bite me, baby -- I perform this way
    I might be wearin' Swiss cheese or maybe covered with bees
    It doesn't mean I'm crazy -- I perform this way

    Ooo, my little monsters pay... lots 'cause I perform this way
    Baby, I perform this way
    Ooo, don't worry, I'm okay... hey, I just perform this way
    I'm not crazy, I perform this way

    I'll be a troll or evil queen
    I'll be a human jelly bean
    'Cause every day is Halloween
    For me...

    I'm so completely original
    My new look is all the rage
    I'll wrap my small intestines 'round my neck
    And set fire to myself on stage
    I'll wear a porcupine on my head
    On a W-H-I-M
    And for no reason now I'll sing in French
    Excusez-moi, Qui a pété? (Who cut the cheese?)

    Got my straight jacket today, it's made of gold lamé
    No, not because I'm crazy - I perform this way
    I strap prime rib to my feet, cover myself with raw meat
    I'll bet you've never seen a skirt steak worn this way

    Don't be offended when you see
    My latest pop monstrosity
    I'm strange, weird, shocking, odd, bizarre
    I'm Frankenstein, I'm Avatar
    There's nothing too embarrassing
    I'll honestly do anything
    But wear white after Labor Day
    'Cause baby, I perform this way

    Hope you won't think it's cliché if I go nude today
    Don't call the cops now, baby, I perform this way
    No reason I should regret all the attention I get
    I'm not completely crazy, I perform this way, yeah

    I perform this way-hey, I perform this way-hey
    I'm always deviating from the norm this way-hey
    I perform this way-hey, I perform this way-hey
    I'm really not insane -- I just perform this way-hey
    (Stavro Arrgolus)

    I love karaoke-version, they make the most bizarre songs ever, they are my karaoke heroes (they have several Weird Al songs that are fairly rare, even a polka or two, and they have Oops I farted again among other internet hits available for karaoke)

    Now they are, I feel silly--they weren't orange when I first voted. . .so I assumed it wasn't working, thanks

    Works for me. The stars are supposed to be orange when you've voted.

    It seems the new rating thing (stars) is still being worked out I tried to rate a couple songs and it's not yet working. .

    Awesome parody, glad to hear GaGa wasn't against it and that it was a misunderstanding since she's been a strong advocate for parody, and everything else alternative for that matter. . .Easy 10 for me
