Grammy award-winning musician/comedian “Weird Al” Yankovic creates another parody and selected Lady Gaga’s Born This Way as his latest “victim”.

The parody almost didn’t make it out after rumors of Lady Gaga not approving the song surfaced. “There must of been a misunderstanding because [Gaga] is in no way trying to block the release of the parody,” a source told TMZ. “She’s busy touring and hasn’t heard the song yet. Her manager hasn’t had a chance to play it for her yet. She’s a huge Weird Al fan.”

The rumor was quickly dispatched when Weird Al posted on YouTube that Lady Gaga approved of the video.

Watch the “Born This Way” Parody by Weird Al below:

“Born This Way” Parody Lyrics:

My mama told me when I was hatched
Act like a superstar
Save your allowance, buy a bubble dress
And someday you will go far
Now on red carpets, well, I’m hard to miss
The press follows everywhere I go
I’ll poke your eye out with a dress like this
Back off and enjoy the show!

I’m sure my critics will say it’s a grotesque display
Well, they can bite me, baby — I perform this way
I might be wearin’ Swiss cheese or maybe covered with bees
It doesn’t mean I’m crazy — I perform this way

Ooo, my little monsters pay… lots ’cause I perform this way
Baby, I perform this way
Ooo, don’t worry, I’m okay… hey, I just perform this way
I’m not crazy, I perform this way

I’ll be a troll or evil queen
I’ll be a human jelly bean
‘Cause every day is Halloween
For me…

I’m so completely original
My new look is all the rage
I’ll wrap my small intestines ’round my neck
And set fire to myself on stage
I’ll wear a porcupine on my head
On a W-H-I-M
And for no reason now I’ll sing in French
Excusez-moi, Qui a pété? (Who cut the cheese?)

Got my straight jacket today, it’s made of gold lamé
No, not because I’m crazy - I perform this way
I strap prime rib to my feet, cover myself with raw meat
I’ll bet you’ve never seen a skirt steak worn this way

Don’t be offended when you see
My latest pop monstrosity
I’m strange, weird, shocking, odd, bizarre
I’m Frankenstein, I’m Avatar
There’s nothing too embarrassing
I’ll honestly do anything
But wear white after Labor Day
‘Cause baby, I perform this way

Hope you won’t think it’s cliché if I go nude today
Don’t call the cops now, baby, I perform this way
No reason I should regret all the attention I get
I’m not completely crazy, I perform this way, yeah

I perform this way-hey, I perform this way-hey
I’m always deviating from the norm this way-hey
I perform this way-hey, I perform this way-hey
I’m really not insane — I just perform this way-hey
