A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this music.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that "You and I" is among the cleaner tunes in Lady Gaga's repertoire. There's no profanity or violence, and it only has a few lines about drinking and sex. There's one mention of "serving Jesus Christ." Though the romantic relationship described in the song is on the mature side, it's still an overall OK track for younger Gaga fans.
