Huh oh
Yeah yeah
Huh oh
Whoa woa
Oh

I
I feel good
I walk alone
But then I trip over myself and I fall, I
I stand up
And then I'm OK
But then you print some shit that makes me want to scream

So do what you want, what you want with my body
Do what you want, don't stop, let's party
Do what you want, what you want with my body
Do what you want, what you want with my body

Write what you want, say what you want 'bout me
If you're wondering, know that I'm not sorry
Do what you want, what you want with my body
What you want with my body!

You can't have my heart and you won't use my mind but
Do what you want with my body
Do what you want with my body
You can’t stop my voice 'cause
You don't own my life but
Do what you want with my body
Do what you want with my body

My bones hurt from all the show hmm
But I don't feel the pain 'cause I'm a pro I
I sink in and then I'm okay eh,
'Cause my body belongs to you when I'm on stage eh

So do what you want, what you want with my body
Do what you want, don't stop, let's party
Do what you want, what you want with my body
Do what you want, what you want with my body

Write what you want, say what you want 'bout me
If you're wondering, know that I'm not sorry
Do what you want, what you want with my body
What you want with my body!

You can't have my heart and
You won't use my mind but
Do what you want with my body
Do what you want with my body
You can’t stop my voice 'cause
You don't own my life but
Do what you want with my body
Do what you want with my body

Sometimes I'm scared I suppose
If you ever let me go
I would fall apart (apart)
If you break my heart
So just take my body
And don't stop the party (ey!)

You can't have my heart
And you won't use my mind but
Do what you want with my body
Do what you want with my body
You can’t stop my voice 'cause
You don't own my life but
Do what you want with my body
Do what you want with my body

Do what you want with me
What you want make it ?
What you want will make us cleaner
What you want with my body
Do what you want with me
What you want with my body
Do what you want with me
What you want with my body, world
Help me now
What you want with my body (world)(what you want with my body)
Do what you want with my body

    Song MeaningThe songs about not giving the haters her heart, mind, soul instead just giving them her body so they can say whatever and do whatever they want with her body (photoshop, ex. born this way ball tour 'fat' pictures)

    She said during an interview that her haters can do what they want with her body but only her little monsters can have heart.

    My OpinionI would think twice before giving R. Kelly permission to do what he wants with your body, Gaga.

    Song MeaningBasically:
    "You can body shame me all you want, but that's not going to take away who I am or what I do."
    Like most of the songs on her album, this is just a general middle finger to her critics and haters in the media.

    Song MeaningI think this song means that her critics can "Do What U Want" wit her body meaning like calling her fat. When R. Kelly says "Escape all this crazy shit", he means escape all those mean critics. Also "you don't own my mind" means the critics won't force her what to do.

    General CommentResignation
    That is what this song is about.
    In the context of a pop song, Lady Gaga is resigning herself and therefore all women to the level of sex objects. This is not the end; people are more than that...women are people. R. Kelly's "character" within the song has no inkling of this thinking it is just a pop song like any other.
    Fuck it you think women are all just a bunch of tools--utilize us, but really we'll be utilizing you keeping our souls (for what they are worth) intact.
    This is a bleak song as far as the relations between the sexes is concerned. Men do believe that women are objects for sex, even the "nice guys"--you know who you are. Women, quite rightly, do believe--as men unthinkingly do--that they are more than just their bodies.
    This is a perfect pop song in that it is catchy, somewhat edgy (R. Kelly's even being a part of it, disgraced as he is), but that it has a somewhat complex subtext of transcending the corporeal body and its faith that their is something beyond that.
    "We lay in the cut like we don't give a fuuuuuuuuck!" Will send shivers down the spine of all but the most jaded of listeners, even if it is being sung by such an oblivious throwback as the one R. Kelly "plays" here.

    General CommentPersonally I think this song is about a certain stage of a relationship where a couple have began being sexual. Lady Gaga does not want to give R. Kelly her love because she senses flaws -
    "I, I stand up and then I'm okay
    But then you print some shit that makes me wanna scream"
    She is not sure about him. Though in the second verse I think that R. Kelly is trying to prove himself to her by saying things like
    "I could be the drink in your cup
    I could be the green in your blunt"

    Song MeaningThis song is about Lady Gaga giving the world her body, while she keeps her heart and her mind focused on her music. She sings,

    "My bones hurt from all the show hmm
    But I don't feel the pain 'cause I'm a pro I
    I sink in and then I'm okay eh,
    'Cause my body belongs to you when I'm on stage eh"

    to say that she is tribute to her fans. She lets them do what they want with her body while she's onstage. But then she also lets her critics know her body mainly belongs to them too:

    "But then you print some shit that makes me want to scream
    So do what you want, what you want with my body
    Do what you want, don't stop, let's party"

    She grants them control and says that they can insult her body and call her ugly as much as they like, but she's not gonna let them have her heart or mind.

    TranslationI feel good, I walk along
    But then I trip upon myself and I fall off
    I stand up, and then I'm OK
    But then you break that chip
    That makes me want to scream

    So do what you want
    What you want with my body
    Do what you want
    Don't stop, let's party
    Do what you want
    What you want with my body
    Do what you want
    What you want with my body

    Write what you want
    Say what you want 'bout me
    If you're wondering
    Know that I'm not sorry
    Do what you want
    What you want with my body
    What you want with my body

    You can't have my heart
    And you won't use my mind but
    Do what you want with my body
    Do what you want with my body
    You can't stop my voice cause
    You don't own my life but
    Do what you want with my body
    Do what you want with my body

    Early morning, longer nights
    Time for private flights
    Crazy schedule, fast life
    I wouldn't trade it in
    Cause it's our life
    (now let's slow it down)
    I could be the drink in your cup
    I could be the green in your blunt
    Your pusha man, yeah I got what you want
    You want to escape all of the crazy shit
    You're the mailman, I'm the president
    I love to hear you sing, girl

    Do what I want
    Do what I want with your body
    Do what I want
    Do what I want with your body
    Back of the club, taking shots, getting naughty
    No invitations, it's a private party
    Do what I want
    Do what I want with your body
    Do what I want
    Do what I want with your body
    Yeah we taking these haters
    And we roughin' em up
    And we laying in the cut like we don't give a fuck

    You can't have my heart
    And you won't use my mind but
    Do what you want with my body
    Do what you want with my body
    You can't stop my voice cause
    You don't own my life but
    Do what you want with my body
    Do what you want with my body

    Sometimes I'm scared I suppose
    If you ever let me go
    I would fall apart
    If you break my heart
    So just take my body
    And don't stop the party

    You can't have my heart
    And you won't use my mind but
    Do what you want with my body
    Do what you want with my body
    You can't stop my voice cause
    You don't own my life but
    Do what you want with my body
    Do what you want with my body

    Do what you want with me
    What you want with my body
    Do what you want with me
    What you want with my body
    Do what you want with me

    Do what you want with me
    What you want with my body
