Do you wanna peek underneath the cover?

from Lady Gaga – Aura Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

There appear to be three reoccurring themes throughout this song:

1) Sex
2) Seeing Through Lady Gaga’s Gorgeousness
3) Islam

This lyric is an example of all three themes:

First of all, this is referring to one of the most classic forms of sex: sex in bed. In this case she literally means, “do you want to peak underneath the bed cover?”

Second of all, this is once again seeing behind her gorgeousness, aka the “cover”.

Finally, this is referring to a burqa, a long, loose garment covering the whole body from head to feet, worn in public by many Muslim women. Many claim this is offensive to Muslims and is repeated throughout the song.
