Meaning of the song Bloody Mary by Lady Gaga, and what it is about


The title of the song is an insult mostly directed at the English monarch Mary Tudor, but in its lyrics, Gaga plays the biblical figure Mary Magdalene, whom she had revered as a "feminine force" ever since attending a Catholic ladies school as a young girl.


After the Netflix comedic horror series Wednesday debuted in 2022, fans recreated the title character's dance to an accelerated version of the song on TikTok, which became viral.


Lyrics of the song Bloody Mary by Lady Gaga


Money

Oh

 

Love is just a history that they may prove

And when you're gone

I'll tell them my religion's you

When Punktious comes to kill the king upon his throne

I'm ready for their stones

 

I'll dance, dance, dance

With my hands, hands, hands

Above my head, head, head

Like Jesus said

I'm gonna dance, dance, dance

With my hands, hands, hands above my head

Hands together, forgive him before he's dead, because

 

I won't cry for you

I won't crucify the things you do

I won't cry for you

See (see), when you're gone, I'll still be Bloody Mary

 

Love

 

We are not just art for Michelangelo to carve

He can't rewrite the agro of my furied heart

I'll wait on mountain tops in Paris, cold

J'veux pas mourir toute seule

[English translation: "I don't want to die alone"]

 

I'll dance, dance, dance

With my hands, hands, hands

Above my head, head, head

Like Jesus said

I'm gonna dance, dance, dance

With my hands, hands, hands above my head

Hands together, forgive him before he's dead, because

 

I won't cry for you

I won't crucify the things you do

I won't cry for you

See (see), when you're gone, I'll still be Bloody Mary

 

Love
