About Yoü and I

"Yoü and I" is a song written and recorded by American singer-songwriter Lady Gaga, taken from her second studio album, Born This Way (2011). She also co-produced it with Robert John "Mutt" Lange. The track samples Queen's "We Will Rock You" (1977) and features electric guitar by Queen's Brian May. Gaga debuted "You and I" in June 2010 during her performance at Elton John's White Tie and Tiara Ball. Footage of the performance appeared on the Internet, and positive response encouraged her to include the song on her setlist for The Monster Ball Tour. She later performed the song on Today to a record crowd in July 2010, and on The Oprah Winfrey Show in May 2011. On August 23, 2011, Interscope Records released the song as the fourth single from the album. "You and I" is a slow tempo song featuring instrumentation from electric guitars and piano, with Gaga and Lange providing background vocals. The song received critical acclaim, with reviewers listing it as one of the highlights from Born This Way. After the release of the parent album, "You and I" charted in Canada, United Kingdom and the United States, due to digital downloads from the parent album. Season ten American Idol contestant Haley Reinhart performed "You and I" in May 2011 before its release, earning positive reviews. Her studio recording was released to the iTunes Store as a single, and appeared on the compilation album, American Idol Top 5 Season 10. "You and I" was nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Pop Solo Performance at the 54th Grammy Awards, which was held on February 12, 2012. The accompanying music video for "You and I" was also met with a positive response. It was shot by Gaga's long-time collaborator Laurieann Gibson in Springfield, Nebraska, and it was released on August 16, 2011. It features Yüyi, Gaga's mermaid alter ego, and Jo Calderone, Gaga's male alter ego, who also appears on the single's cover. Gaga later performed the song dressed as Jo Calderone at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards. The song has subsequently been performed on the singer's concert tours and residencies.

It's been a long time since I came around 
Been a long time but I'm back in town 
And this time I'm not leaving without you 

You taste like whiskey when you kiss me oh 
I'd give anything again to be your baby doll 
This time I'm not leaving without you

You say sit back down where you belong 
In the corner of my bar with your high heels on 
Sit back down on the couch where we made love the first time 
And you said to me there's, 

(Something), something, something about this place 
(Something), something about lonely nights 
And my lipstick on your face 
(Something), something, something about my cool Nebraska guy 
Yeah something about baby you and I 

It's been two years since I let you go 
I couldn't listen to a joke or Rock and Roll 
Muscle cars drove a truck right through my heart 

On my birthday you sang me a heart of gold 
With a guitar humming and no clothes, I'd rather die
This time I'm not leaving without you

Sit back down where you belong 
In the corner of my bar with your high heels on 
Sit back down on the couch where we made love the first time 
And you said to me there's

(Something), something, something about this place 
(Something), something about lonely nights 
And my lipstick on your face 
(Something), something, something about my cool Nebraska guy 
Yeah something about baby you and I 

You and I 
You you and I 
You you and I 
You you and I 

You and I 
You you and I 
Oh yeah, we're gonna die
Without you and I

We got a whole lot of money, but we still pay rent
'Cause you can't buy a house in heaven
There's only three men that I am a certain my whole life 
It's my daddy and Nebraska and Jesus Christ
Born to run you down

(Something), something, something about the chase (six whole years) 
I am a New York woman born to rock you down
So want my lipstick all over your face 
(Something), something, something about just knowing when it's right 
So put your dreams up for Nebraska
For Nebraska, Nebraska, I love you

You and I 
You you and I 
Baby I'd rather die
Without you and I

You and I 
You you and I
Nebraska
I'd rather die
Without you and I

It's been a long time since I came around 
Been a long time but I'm back in town 
And this time I'm not leaving without you
