One response to “Lady Gaga: Fame Monster”

  1. Julie Dinise

    I received your September issue as a part of the Edge Middle School Ministry Resource Box shipment in November. I am the Assistant Youth Minister at St. Peter and St. Paul Church in Southern California. I read and completely loved your issue on Lady Gaga. I found it very useful in relating to the teens at my parish and finding ways to take culture and make it something holy for God (for example, the suggestion to re-write one of Gaga’s songs and make the lyrics holy). So I have done just that. Below are my own lyrics to “Bad Romance” by Lady Gaga. If you actually listen to the song and sing my lyrics over the top of hers, they make more sense than if you just read them. Peace in Christ!

    Divine Romance
    A Christian spoof on Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance”

    OOO-OOO-OOO, CAUGHT UP IN DIVINE ROMANCE!

    RU-RU-UU-UU-AH! HOLY-SPIRIT-AA! JESUS and FAA-THAA! WANT DIVINE ROMANCE?!

    I want Your beauty, I want Your holy.
    You give Your everything, I know that it’s free.
    I want Your love, love, love, love,
    I want Your love.

    I want to know You, the touch of Your hand.
    I’ll shine Your glory in all that I am.
    I want Your love, love, love, love
    You give Your love.

    You know who I am
    And You know that I need You.
    I want divine, divine romance.

    I want Your lovin’ and Your forgiveness
    You and me could write divine romance.
    I get so filled up; You’re my Lover, my Friend
    You and me have a divine romance.

    (repeat “divine romance” pre-chorus)

    I will love others, fulfill Your design.
    I want Your joyful, Your heartbeat in mine.
    I have Your love, love, love, love
    I give Your love.

    I feel Your Passion, I want to do flips.
    ‘Cause You’ve redeemed me and now I live.
    You gave Your life, life, life, life
    So I can love.

    You know that I praise You
    And You know I’m a fool for You
    (‘Cause I’m freed, baby!)
    I want divine, divine romance.

    I want Your lovin’ and Your forgiveness
    You and me could write divine romance.
    I get so filled up; You’re my Lover, my Friend
    You and me have a divine romance.

    OOO-OOO-OOO, CAUGHT UP IN DIVINE ROMANCE!

    RU-RU-UU-UU-AH! HOLY-SPIRIT-AA! JESUS and FAA-THAA! WANT DIVINE ROMANCE?!

    (Bridge)
    Pray, pray, don’t get lazy
    Faithfulness pays off, baby.
    Pray, pray, don’t get lazy
    Works of faith get me crazy.

    Work, pray, don’t be hatin’
    Hope’s alive, it won’t be fadin’.
    Work, pray, passion, baby,
    Amen. I’m fully alive!

    “You want My Love
    And My forgiveness
    I give it all
    I call you ‘my friends’.
    Sanctus, Sanctus,
    Panis angelicus,
    Hoc est enim Corpus meum
    It is consummated!”

    Now I call you my friends!
    (Want divine romance! Want divine romance!)
    I call you my friends!
    (Want divine romance! Want divine romance!)
    (Caught up in divine romance!)

    I want Your lovin’ and Your forgiveness
    You and me could write divine romance.
    I get so filled up; You’re my Lover, my Friend
    You and me have a divine romance.
