Lyrics for Lady Gaga – “G.U.Y.”

Greetings, Himeros
God of sexual desire, son of Aphrodite
Lay back, and feast as this audio guides you through new and exciting positions

[Verse 1]
I wanna be the girl under you (oh yeah)
I wanna be your G.U.Y. (yeah)
I wanna be the grave and unearth you (oh yeah)
Our sexes tell us no lies

I’m gonna wear the tie, want the power to leave you
I’m aiming for full control of this love (of this love)
Touch me, touch me, don’t be sweet
Love me, love me, please retweet
Let me be the girl under you that makes you cry

I wanna be that guy (G.U.Y.)
I wanna be that guy (G.U.Y.)
I wanna be that guy (G.U.Y.)
The girl under you, guy

[Verse 2]
I’m gonna say the word
And own you
You’ll be my (G.I.R.L)
Guy I’m Romancing Loves to hold you (oh yeah)
Know, you wear my make-up well

[Pre-Chorus + Chorus]

I don’t need to be on top to know I’m worth it
Cause I’m strong enough to know the truth
I just want it to be hot
Because I’m blessed when I’m in love and I’m in love with you

Touch me, touch me (Mount your goddess)
Touch me, touch me (A summer moon comes into full phase)
Get on top of me (And Mars’ warring spirit rams into the atmosphere)
Touch me, touch me, don’t be shy
I’m in charge like a G.U.Y
I’ll lay down face up this time
I’m in charge like a G.U.Y
I lay down face up this time
Under you like a G.U.Y


[Final Chorus]
I wanna be that guy (G.U.Y.)
I’ll wrap you right up, guy (G.U.Y.)
I’ll lay down face up, guy (G.U.Y.)
The girl under you, guy (G.U.Y.)

Nein, Zedd!
Nein, Zedd!
Nein, Zedd!
Nein, Zedd!

Running for nearly twelve minutes, the video features four songs from Artpop and features the central video for “G.U.Y.” The video opens with corporate business men fighting each other over money. Nearby, a fallen Gaga dressed as a winged creature, has been shot out of the sky with an arrow. An instrumental of her song “Artpop” plays in the background. The men run off and Gaga crawls to safety, removing the arrow from her chest. Gaga makes it to her feet and travels to a palace, where she collapses at the front door and is scraped up by the guards. “Venus” begins as she is carried down to the pool, where people cover her in flowers and descend her into the water as a healing process.

“G.U.Y.” begins as Gaga rises again in a white dress, reborn as a Greek Goddess of sorts and the song begins to play. Shots of Gaga in different outfits, including a blue dress and white bikini are shown with dance sequences. Andy Cohen and The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stars make cameos in the video. A scene featuring Gaga rolling around on a seashell bed in a red outfit, dancing in a gold leotard with arrows, and floating on a bed in a pool are shown throughout the song.

With the help of Youtuber SkyDoesMinecraft (also making his cameo appearance), Michael JacksonMahatma GandhiJohn Lennon, and Jesus are resurrected using the game Minecraft and their blood is used to create clones known as “G.U.Y.” A dance scene in a clone factory is shown with Gaga in jeans. Gaga, Lisa Vanderpump, and Kyle Richards are seen coming out of a car in black outfits, shooting money cannons, and walking down the hallway to kill corporate executives to replace with G.U.Y. clones. The film ends with thousands of these clones marching out of the castle. Credits are run for four minutes as “Manicure” plays.
