Lady GagaWow, if the melody is anywhere as powerful as the lyrics, Lady Gaga is going to have an out-of-control hit on her hands with her new song "Born This Way." She released the lyrics today on Twitter, and already people are going ... well, gaga for it.

It would be hard for this hit to miss, what with it being a potential anthem song for ... let's see, pretty much everybody in the world. In it she speaks to the plight of every underdog or group that's discriminated against. From gay, lesbian, and transgendered teens to the Lebanese (yeah, I think they made it because it rhymes with teased) to drag queens -- oh especially drag queens (don't be a drag, just be a queen) -- there's something in it for everyone.

Check out some of the lyrics for the song, which we won't hear in full until February 13 at the Grammys, after the jump:

DON'T BE A DRAG, JUST BE A QUEEN
WHETHER YOU'RE BROKE OR EVERGREEN
YOU'RE BLACK, WHITE, BEIGE, CHOLA DESCENT
YOU'RE LEBANESE, YOU'RE ORIENT
WHETHER LIFE'S DISABILITIES
LEFT YOU OUTCAST, BULLIED, OR TEASED
REJOICE AND LOVE YOURSELF TODAY
'CAUSE BABY YOU WERE BORN THIS WAY

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

Pretty powerful, right? I can see the lighters waving in the concert arena now ...

But really a great message, and whether you like Lady Gaga or not, there are few who can disagree with the message of equality and empowerment she's sending. I didn't say NONE, as I'm SURE there will be some crazy nutso faction who will start burning the CDs or something in protest of her daring to say gays should be proud. But for the most part, I think this may finally outshine the whole meat dress incident.

Now, let's just hope it sounds good. If the preview she gave us at the VMAs last year when she wore said meat dress is any indication, it definitely will:
