"Poker Face" is a single by American recording artist Lady Gaga from her debut album, The Fame. Produced by RedOne, the song was covered by Duran Duran in concert during 2011.

About the songEdit

The song was written by Lady Gaga and RedOne, while the music was produced by RedOne. Gaga stated in an interview that "Poker Face" was written by her as a pop song and as a tribute to her "rock 'n' roll boyfriends. The track is an uptempo dance-pop song in the key of G# minor, following in the footsteps of her previous single "Just Dance" but with a darker musical tone. The main idea behind the song is bisexuality and was a tribute by Gaga to her rock n' roll boyfriends. Lyrically, "Poker Face" is about sex and gambling.

Duran Duran covered the song in 2011, as part of band introductions during "Girls on Film". A performance was included at the MGM Grand, Foxwoods in Mashantucket on 2 April 2011.

LyricsEdit

mum-mum-mum-mah
mum-mum-mum-mah
mum-mum-mum-mah
mum-mum-mum-mah

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)
Luck and 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 o-oh oh oh, o-o-o-o-o-oh
I'll get him hot, show him what I've got
(2x)

Can't read my, can't read my
No, he can't read my poker face
(She's got to love nobody)
(2x)

P-p-p-poker face, p-p-poker face
(mum-mum-mum-mah)
(2x)

I wanna roll with him, a hard pair we will be
A little gamblin' 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 it's not rough it isn't fun (fun)

Oh o-oh oh oh, o-o-o-o-o-oh
I'll get him hot, show him what I've got
(2x)

Can't read my, can't read my
No, he can't read my poker face
(She's got to love nobody)
(2x)

P-p-p-poker face, p-p-poker face
(mum-mum-mum-mah)
(2x)
(mum-mum-mum-mah) (2x)

I won't tell you that I love you, kiss or hug you
'Cause I'm bluffin' with my muffin
I'm not lying, I'm just stunnin' with my love-glue-gunning (ma)
Just like a chick in a casino, take your bank before I pay you out
I promise this, promise this
Check this hand 'cause I'm marvelous

Can't read my, can't read my
No, he can't read my poker face
(She's got to love nobody)
(6x)

P-p-p-poker face, p-p-poker face (2x)
(She's got to love nobody)
P-p-p-poker face, p-p-poker face
(mum-mum-mum-mah)
P-p-p-poker face, p-p-poker face
(mum-mum-mum-mah)
p-p-p-poker face, p-p-poker face
(m-m-m-ma)
p-p-p-poker face, p-p-poker face
(m-m-m-ma)
