"Ribbons" is a song written by Lady Gaga and Rob Fusari (Team Love Child). It is believed that the song is metaphorically speaking about contraception and the use of a condom. In the beginning quote of the song, Gaga says: "I'm not bad, I just sound that way". This is a quote from the movie Who Framed Roger Rabbit, when Jessica Rabbit says, "I'm not bad, I'm just drawn that way".

LyricsEdit

Intro:
I'm not bad, I just sound that way

Verse 1:
All the girls, they like their presents, like their presents
When boys wrap 'em up in ribbons, ribbons, ribbons
Doesn't matter if they're precious or expensive
If they're well thought out, sexed up, wrapped right
Every time, get in line and give me mine

We like black, white, big striped
Polka-dotted, cafe latte
Presents come in many sizes
Wrap them up in ribbons

Chorus:
Wrap their presents up in ribbons
Wrap their presents up in ribbons
Wrap their presents up in ribbons

Wrap their presents up in ribbons
Wrap their presents up in ribbons
Wrap their presents up in ribbons

Verse 2:
I'm not a Hallmark card expression
Need material attention wrapped in ribbons
Richard Simmons; silly ribbons, ribbons, ribbons

If you can't afford the best
Don't be stressed, take a rest
Get a job, do it right
It's my birthday all night

We like black, white, big striped
Famous, super-sizing fries
We don't care what you put inside it
Wrap it up in ribbons

It's the life style that I like
I'll give you yours, you'll give me mine
But don't forget to wrap them up
In pretty, pretty ribbons

Chorus:
Wrap their presents up in ribbons
Wrap their presents up in ribbons
Wrap their presents up in ribbons

Wrap their presents up in ribbons
Wrap their presents up in ribbons
Wrap their presents up in ribbons

Bridge:
Only difference between downtown and uptown
Is therapy and valium, therapy and valium
Not lying when I say this, there's a price to being famous
Yeah, it's therapy and valium, therapy and valium

It's not complicated, just a fashion statement
Everybody wrap it up, everybody wrap it up
It's not complicated, just a fashion statement
Everybody wrap it up, everybody wrap it up

(Lots of presents)
It's not complicated
(Filthy riches)
Just a fashion statement
Everybody wrap it up, everybody wrap it up
(Got good presents)
It's not complicated
(Filthy riches)
Just a fashion statement
Everybody wrap it up, everybody wrap it up

Chorus:
Wrap their presents up in ribbons
Wrap their presents up in ribbons
Wrap their presents up in ribbons

Wrap their presents up in ribbons
Wrap their presents up in ribbons
Wrap their presents up in ribbons

Wrap their presents up
Wrap their presents up
