"Poker Face" as written by Nadir Khayat and Stefani Germanotta....
I wanna hold 'em like they do in Texas plays
Fold 'em, let 'em, hit me, raise it baby stay with me (I love it)
Love Game intuition play the cards with spades to start
And after he's been hooked I'll play the one that's on his heart

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh-oh-e-oh-oh-oh
I'll get him hot, show him what I've got
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh-oh-e-oh-oh-oh,
I'll get him hot, show him what I've got

[Chorus]
Can't read my,
Can't read my,
No he can't read my poker face
(She's got me like nobody)
Can't read my
Can't read my
No he can't read my poker face
(She is gonna let nobody)

P p p poker face, p p p poker face
(Muh muh muh muh)
P p p poker face, p p poker face
(Muh muh muh muh)

I wanna roll with him a hard pair we will be
A little gambling is fun when you're with me (I love it)
Russian Roulette is not the same without a gun
And baby when it's love, if its not rough it isn't fun, fun

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh-oh-e-oh-oh-oh
I'll get him hot, show him what I've got
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh-oh-e-oh-oh-oh,
I'll get him hot, show him what I've got

[Chorus]

P p p poker face, p p p poker face
(Muh muh muh muh)
P p p poker face, p p p poker face
(Muh muh muh muh)

I won't tell you that I love you
Kiss or hug you
'Cause I'm bluffing with my muffin
I'm not lying I'm just stunning with my love glue gunnin'
Just like a chick in the casino
Take your bank before I pay you out
I promise this, promise this
Check this hand cause I'm marvelous

[Chorus: x3]

P p p poker face, p p p poker face
(Muh muh muh muh)
P p p poker face, p p p poker face
(Muh muh muh muh)

(She is gonna let nobody)

P p p poker face, p p p poker face
(Muh muh muh muh)
P p p poker face, p p p poker face
(Muh muh muh muh)

P p p poker face, p p p poker face
(Muh muh muh muh)
P p p poker face, p p p poker face
(Muh muh muh muh)

    General CommentShe's a whore and she's using men and she's so good at hiding it that they don't suspect it until she does it to them?

    General CommentAhhh.. I think I actually got it.

    She's with these guys and they're so blinded by her that they think she loves them, but she just wants their money, and that's all she's using them for.

    Or I'm wrong and the previous comment is right?

    I'm taking the pokerface & gambling lyrics literally.

    Song MeaningIt is certainly about a woman who maintains a cool unfeeling facade, but not necessarily one who is immune to emotional involvement. "Shes gonna love nobody" is the message her face sends, but Russian Roulette is a game with risks for both participants. She prefers to have the upper hand though, concealing any arousal or actual affection, while trying to draw the man in.

    Song MeaningLady Gaga interpreted "Poker Face" at the 20th Annual White party. "Poker face is the one she puts on while she's with a man but really fantasizing about a woman". As according to Perez Hilton. I found this interesting because I wondered what the meaning really was and I never could come up with one definite answer. So, I hope this helps. It's all about the ladies loving the ladies!

    General CommentIt is love glue gun. I typed it wrong. According to Lady Gaga's official lyrics it's also "she's got me like nobody" rather than "she's gonna love nobody" (which is distinctly what I hear), and it's also "I'll get him HOT, show him what I got." I really thought I heard hard. Haha. :]

    General CommentI definitely hear love game. And lovesickened, if it was "hard" she'd be just a little more trashy. Haha, not that it'd matter, I'd still love her.

    General CommentI'm relatively sure this song is about "poking" lady gaga in the face with a "disco stick" which she will put up with because you will compensate her financially. Amazing composition.
