Weird Al Yankovic Spoofs Lady Gaga

Jim Spellman/WireImage(NEW YORK) -- Weird Al Yankovic is out with his insanely fun take on Lady Gaga, turning her hit song "Born this Way" into "Perform This Way."

The singer-comedian dons a wig and dresses in a series of Gaga-esque, outlandish outfits for the music video parody and sings: "I might be wearing Swiss cheese/May be covered in bees/It doesn't mean I'm crazy/I perform this way."

"I'll be a troll or evil queen," he continues. "I'll be a human jelly bean/'Cause every day is Halloween/For me."

The spoof's for a good cause: all proceeds from the song will go to the Human Rights Campaign, supporting the LGBT community.

'Weird Al' Yankovic Parodies Lady Gaga, She Approves

Kevin Winter/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- "Weird Al" Yankovic has recorded his own version of Lady Gaga’s smash hit "Born This Way” and originally claimed that Gaga's disapproval of the song kept him from officially releasing it as a single from his new album, but that's not the case any longer. According to a tweet by New York Times writer David Itzkoff Wednesday night, Weird Al's manager said that Gaga has now given permission for the song to appear on his album.  Yankovic later confirmed it on his blog.

The lyrics to the song include such lines as, "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/Ooh, my little monsters pay/Lots, 'cause I perform this way/Baby, I perform this way."
