"Venus" as written by and Herman Poole Blount Paul Blair....
Rocket #9 take off to the planet (to the planet)
Venus
Aphrodite lady seashell bikini (garden panty)
Venus
Let's blast off to a new dimension (in your bedroom)
Venus
Aphrodite lady seashell bikini (get with me)
Venus

I can't help the way I'm feeling
Goddess of love, please take me to your leader
I can't help, I keep on dancing
Goddess of love, goddess of love

Take me to your planet (to the planet)
Take me to your planet (to the planet)
Take me to your leader (to the planet)
Your leader, your leader (to the planet)
Take me to your planet (to the planet)
Take me to your planet (to the planet)
Take me to your Venus (to the planet)
Your Venus, your Venus

When you touch me, I die
Just a little inside
I wonder if this could be love
This could be love
'Cause you're out of this world
Galaxy, space, and time
I wonder if this could be love (Venus)

Have an oyster, baby, it's Aphrod-isy
Act sleazy
Venus
Worship to the land a girl from the planet (to the planet)
To the planet

I can't help the way I'm feeling
Goddess of love, please take me to your leader
I can't help, I keep on dancing
Goddess of love, goddess of love

Take me to your planet (to the planet)
Take me to your planet (to the planet)
Take me to your leader (to the planet)
Your leader, your leader (to the planet)
Take me to your planet (to the planet)
Take me to your planet (to the planet)
Take me to your Venus (to the planet)
Your Venus, your Venus

When you touch me, I die
Just a little inside
I wonder if this could be love
This could be love
'Cause you're out of this world
Galaxy, space, and time
I wonder if this could be love, this could be

Love (wonder if this could be love, this could be love)
Goddess of love (wonder if this could be love)
Venus

Neptune, go
Now serve Pluto
Saturn, Jupiter
Mercury, Venus, uh ha!
Uranus!
Don't you know my ass is famous?
Mars, now serve for the gods
Earth, serve for the stars!

When you touch me, I die
Just a little inside
I wonder if this could be love
This could be love
'Cause you're out of this world
Galaxy, space, and time
I wonder if this could be love, this could be

Love (wonder if this could be love, this could be love)
Goddess of love (wonder if this could be love)
Venus

    Song MeaningObviously about Lady Gaga's experience with having sex with a woman.

    She turns an experience about having sex with a woman into a metaphor about exploring the planet Venus, where the Goddess of love Venus resides. "Exploring" is obviously a metaphor for a lot of things. Mostly about sex.

    >"Let's blast off to a new dimension (in your bedroom)"

    This could be about either homosexuality or having an awesome sex.

    >"Goddess of love, please take me to your leader
    Take me to your Venus (to the planet)
    Your Venus, your Venus"

    I think this is a metaphor for a kind of surrendering/spiritual love/sex with a woman. "Venus" is probably a metaphor for female sexuality, femininity or vagina. She wants to surrender to this woman, this sex, this experience, her feelings.

    >"Have an oyster, baby, it's Aphrod-isy"

    I think an "oyster" is a metaphor for vagina.

    >Worship to the land a girl from the planet (to the planet)
    To the planet"

    I think this confirms the surrendering kind of spiritual love/sex interpretation. When people are feeling spiritual, they tend to worship the land, the "Earth", the planet, etc. and become "one" with their surroundings, the universe. Lady Gaga is expressing those kinds of spiritual feelings.

    >"Cause you're out of this world
    Galaxy, space, and time"
    I wonder if this could be love, this could be

    It appears to Lady Gaga that her partner is so amazing that she transcends galaxy, space and time. Then she wonders if what she is feeling is love (or not).

    General Comment>When you touch me I die, just a little inside

    Probably a reference to "the little death".

    General CommentYeah I think this is about her intimate relationship(s) with other women. She told Barbara Walters in an interview a while back about this. There are some important clues in the song though:

    Aphrodite lady seashell bikini (get with me)
    Venus
    I can't help the way I'm feeling
    Goddess of love, please take me to your leader
    Talking about a woman, reminds me of Katy Perry's "I Kissed a Girl."

    Let's blast off to a new dimension (in your bedroom)
    Venus. The new dimension is the non-traditional relationship they share.

    The most revealing part comes from the chorus:
    When you touch me, I die
    Just a little inside
    I wonder if this could be love
    This could be love
    'Cause you're out of this world
    Galaxy, space, and time
    I wonder if this could be love (Venus).
    The little death probably is an orgasm, never heard that one before. Out of this world, space and time is the adventure they share exploring each other. I think the reason she wonders if this could be love is because she's so used to the Romeo and Juliet version that two women together is radically different (I.e. Who dominates and who submits?). Awesome song though. My favorite on the album, so far.
