The Fame track listing

"Retro, Dance, Freak" is a song written by Lady Gaga, Rob Fusari (Team Love Child), and Calvin Gaines in September through November of 2006. It was first released on the Japanese and Brazilian pressings of The Fame. It was also released on the deluxe edition of The Fame Monster, in selected countries such as Australia and Poland in place of "Again Again".

Writing and inspiration

The title of the song was used to describe herself on her PureVolume page back in 2006. The name might have also come from the retro sounding dance beat in her earlier songs and her feelings of being a freak when she was younger.

"Who's that lady? She's 20. She's a songwriter. She is a singer. She's a pianist. And sheez-a-crazy. A RETRO, DANCE, FREAK."

Lyrics

(The girl needs a lover)

Hello, everybody
Get a ride to the West Side
Kiss the girl with her tongue tied

Hello, everybody
Work it out 'cause you don't care
Shutdown like softwares

Hello, everybody
Take a sip for the hip hop
If you look for for the rest stop

We are just physical
Creatures of the underworld
She is the queen of the full disco scene

Retro, Dance, Freak (Retro, Retro, Dance)
Singing retro, dance, beats (Retro, Retro, Freak)
Retro, Dance, Freak
Undercover
The girl needs a lover

What's up, everybody?
Take a ride on an airplane
Take a bath in champagne

What's up, everybody?
Watch all the girl all curtsy
for the paparazzi

Let's go everybody
It's time that we rotate 'cause it's getting real late

We are just physical
Creatures of the underworld
She is the queen of the faux disco scene

Retro, Dance, Freak (Retro, Retro, Dance)
Retro, Dance, beats (Retro, Retro, Freak)
Retro, Dance, Freak
Undercover
The girl needs a lover

Retro, Dance, Freak (Retro, Retro, Dance)
Singing retro, dance, beats (Retro, Retro, Freak)
Retro, Dance, Freak
Undercover
The girl needs a lover

Retro, Dance, Freak (Retro, Retro, Dance)
Singing retro, dance beats (Retro, Retro, Freak)
Retro, Dance, Freak
Undercover
The girl needs a lover

We are just physical
Creatures of the underworld
She is the queen of the faux disco scene

Retro, Dance, Freak (Retro, Retro, Dance)
Singing retro, dance beats (Retro, Retro, Freak)
Retro, Dance, Freak
Undercover
The girl needs a lover

Retro, Dance, Freak (Retro, Retro, Dance)
Singing retro, dance beats (Retro, Retro, Freak)
Retro, Dance, Freak
