"Electric Chapel" as written by Paul Edward Blair and Stefani J. Germanotta....
My body is sanctuary
My blood is pure
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
You want me bad
I think you're cool
But I'm not sure
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo

Follow me
Don't be such a holy fool
Follow me
I need something more from you
It's not about sex or champagne
You holy fool
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo

If you want me
Meet me at electric chapel
If you want me
Meet me at electric chapel
If you wanna steal my heart away
Meet me, meet me baby in a safe place
Come on meet me
In electric chapel

Come dance to me where you have been
Next to the bar
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
Pray for your sins
Right under the glass disco ball
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo

Follow me
Don't be such a holy fool
Follow me
I need something sacred from you
Together we'll both find a way
To make it pure
Love working in dirty way

If you want me
Meet me at electric chapel
If you want me
Meet me at electric chapel
If you wanna steal my heart away
Meet me, meet me baby in a safe place
Come on meet me
In electric chapel

Ho oh oh oh, ho oh oh oh
Uh uh uh uh uh uh
Ho oh oh oh
Uh uh uh uh uh uh

If you want me
Meet me in electric chapel
Oh, if you want me
Meet me in electric chapel
If you wanna steal my heart away
Meet me, meet me baby in a safe place
Come on meet me
In electric chapel
Oh oh

    Song Meaningi agree with this one guy who sad this

    (I think it's about women who won't give themselves up 'till they're married. They only want to have "dirty love" or sex... Once they've got the sacred blessing of marriage. The "holy fool" is the girl who gives it away easy, so gaga advises not to do that. Yes, she sings about sex all the time, but I think she respects the people that believe it's a gift only for married people, and that your body is sanctuary. Married couples do it. And they can do it any way they want...why not crazy provocative like her songs. The word "electric" in Electric Chapel signifies the modern era. Basically, she's giving off a vibe that it's still cool to wait to give your virginity. She also doesn't want to discriminate or zoom in on one religion. She doesn't say church, she says chapel, meaning some place of worship. This could be Christian, Muslim, Jewish, etc. I think you guys are reading way too into this. Have you ever thought about the fact that she knows she's an icon? She isn't out to collect people's souls. She wants to
    be different and her music and costumes prove she's original talent. Shes harmless and she does care about the messages she sends.)

    General CommentThe second verse is:

    Confess to me where you have been
    Next to the bar
    Do do do, do do do do
    Pray for your sins right under the glass disco ball

    I love this song, specially when she says
    It's not about sex or champagne
    i believe she's just looking for something else than just sex or expensive things, but a commitment hence why the song is about a chapel. :)

    General CommentThis is one of the best songs on the album, the guitar plays a perfect role and the whole dark theme that is infused with a love message is just perfect !

    It's all about wanting to feel safe with your lover in a place where the Safety of Religion and the Electricity of Love and Life is there with no more sorrow and judgment, misunderstanding or just dirty dating.

    General CommentI agree it's about safe sex, and that that's what the title means too: electric = sex, chapel = safe

    General CommentI love this song, it sorta reminds me of She Wants Revenge songs; like kind of dark yet about love. She should write more dark songs like this, it suits her voice and style, like alot! For instance Bad Romance, Bloody Mary, Dance in the Dark :) But with like this kind of tone, it's sexy and very interesting. Love it a lot.

    "My body is sanctuary"

    she's saying somethin we already know, that our body is our temple and we need to take care of it.
    (alias, in my opinion is where our light and darkness live together)

    "My blood is pure"

    I realy don't know what this exactly means but it makes me think about 'Born This Way' and 'Bad Kids'
    (somebody told that mermaids have pure blood so she would probably make a video for this song with them)

    The rest makes me remember about our first true love, maybe a platonic love, without sexual intentions.
