“Alejandro” was the third single released from Lady Gaga’s EP The Fame Monster, following her blockbuster debut album The Fame. In some markets, The Fame Monster was issued with The Fame as a re-release.

The song showcases her sense of cynicism towards deciding if Alejandro (or any of the men mentioned in the song) are the one. The song is sonically inspired by Swedish pop groups ABBA & Ace of Base. Gaga, speaking about The Fame Monster, said:

…I realized that I had written each song about a particular fear that I had come across on my journey promoting the fame….

Many interpret Alejandro as her lamentation of it.
Alejandro’s nine-minute video, directed by photographer Steven Klein, features totalitarian imagery and plays upon imagery from the 1930’s. The hispanic consonance of the names referred to in the song might lead one to think it’s about Franco’s Regime. But it is also said that the video references the treatment of homosexuals in Nazi Germany & the Weimar Republic. These references are rooted in imagery from the 1972 Bob Fosse film Cabaret.

Speaking to Larry King on Larry King Live in 2010, Gaga spoke of the music video saying it’s:

… a celebration of my love and appreciation for the gay community. My admiration of their bravery and their love for one another, their courage in their relationships. It’s something I have yet to – yet to nail on the head with a man…”

Lyrics

[Intro]
I know that we are young, and I know that you may love me
But I just can’t be with you like this anymore
Alejandro…

[Verse 1]
She’s got both hands in her pocket
And she won’t look at you, won’t look at you
She hides true love, en su bolsillo
She’s got a halo around her finger, around you

[Pre-Chorus]
You know that I love you, boy
Hot, like Mexico, rejoice
At this point, I’ve gotta choose
Nothing to lose

[Chorus]
Don’t call my name, don’t call my name, Alejandro
I’m not your babe, I’m not your babe, Fernando
Don’t wanna kiss, don’t wanna touch
Just smoke my cigarette and hush
Don’t call my name, don’t call my name, Roberto
Alejandro, Alejandro
Ale-Alejandro, Ale-Alejandro
Alejandro, Alejandro
Ale-Alejandro, Ale-Alejandro

[Interlude]
Stop, please, just let me go
Alejandro, just let me go

[Verse 2]
She’s not broken
She’s just a baby
But her boyfriend’s like her dad, just like her dad
And all those flames that burned before him
Now he’s gotta firefight, gotta cool the bad

[Pre-Chorus]
You know that I love you, boy
Hot, like Mexico, rejoice
At this point, I’ve gotta choose
Nothing to lose

[Chorus]
Don’t call my name, don’t call my name, Alejandro
I’m not your babe, I’m not your babe, Fernando
Don’t wanna kiss, don’t wanna touch
Just smoke my cigarette and hush
Don’t call my name, don’t call my name, Roberto
Alejandro, Alejandro
Ale-Alejandro, Ale-Alejandro
Alejandro, Alejandro
Ale-Alejandro, Ale-Alejandro

[Bridge]
Don’t bother me, don’t bother me
Alejandro
Don’t call my name, don’t call my name
Bye, Fernando
I’m not your babe, I’m not your babe
Alejandro
Don’t wanna kiss
Don’t wanna touch
Fernando
Don’t call my name, don’t call my name
Alejandro
I’m not your babe, I’m not your babe
Fernando
Don’t wanna kiss, don’t wanna touch
Just smoke my cigarette and hush
Don’t call my name, don’t call my name
Roberto

[Outro]
Alejandro, Alejandro
Ale-Alejandro, Ale-Alejandro
Alejandro, Alejandro
Ale-Alejandro, Ale-Alejandro
(Don’t call my name, don’t call my name) Alejandro, Alejandro
(I’m not your babe, I’m not your babe) Ale-Alejandro, Ale-Alejandro (Fernando)
(Don’t wanna kiss, don’t wanna touch) Alejandro, Alejandro
Ale-Alejandro, Ale-Alejandro (Just smoke my cigarette and hush)
(Don’t call my name, don’t call my name) Alejandro, Alejandro
Ale-Alejandro, Ale-Alejandro (Roberto)
Alejandro
