Lady Gaga "A-Yo" Lyrics: Here's what Gaga's saying on the most pop 'Joanne' song
Lady Gaga's latest album, Joanne, is a country- and bluegrass-infused record that bears little resemblance to the pop goddess the artist once was. But there's one song on the record that manages to reflect Joanne's Western sensibility and still be a bop: "A-Yo."
The song, which Gaga dropped as a single three days before Joanne's release, is the kind of song that belongs both on a gay bar dance floor and on hoedown night. The singer's cry of "Here we go!" as the song opens is enough to get even the most apathetic Joanne listener excited.
The song talks extensively about smoking, particularly as a vengeful act. "I can't wait to smoke them all/ Whole pack like Marlboro," she sings at the start. "Blow it in your face, blow it in your face/ Blow it in your, blow it in your face."
This theme echoes in the chorus' catchy hook, in which Gaga sings "A-Yo, A-Yo/ We smokin' 'em all" on repeat.
Because "A-Yo" is Joanne's most pop radio-friendly song, the lyrics are some of the more repetitive and simple. But for what it lacks in complexity, this song makes up for in charm. After all, it's hard to resist a couplet like, "'Cause I got it covered, city gravy southern/ Got you drippin' like no other."
