Lady Gaga had been teasing lines from her upcoming single "Born This Way" on Twitter since announcing the song's release date on New Year's Eve, but yesterday she finally shared the song's full lyrics with her nearly 8 million followers.

Gaga promised she would post the words to the song if her fans could make #bornthiswaylyrics a trending topic on Twitter. Unsurprisingly, the hashtag was number one worldwide within an hour and the lyrics were unveiled. Here's a taste from the song's bridge:

No matter gay, straight, or bi,
Lesbian, transgendered life
I'm on the right track baby
I was born to survive
No matter black, white or beige
Chola or Orient made
I'm on the right track baby
I was born to be brave

Though it's almost impossible to get a sense of a song's quality based only  its lyrics, the words to "Born This Way" at least confirm that tune is something of an all-inclusive inspirational anthem. It should be fun to hear the pop star sing a refrain like "don't be a drag, just be a queen," though it's hard to imagine a clunky phrase like "subway kid, rejoice your truth" coming off well even with a top-quality melody.

"Born This Way" is currently scheduled for official release on February 13, and the album of the same name is set to come out on May 23.
