Overall Meaning

Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face” is a song about love and seduction. Gaga, a talented and confident gambler, uses gambling metaphors to describe the game of love. She wants to win her lover’s heart and play a game where she has the upper hand. The lyrics “I wanna hold ‘em like they do in Texas, please fold ‘em, let ‘em hit me, raise it, baby, stay with me” express Gaga’s desire to play the game of love with manipulation, bluffing like a skilled poker player. She also mentions “Love game intuition, play the cards with spades to start” which means that she wants to use her intuition to start a love game that will give her control over her lover.


The refrain “Can’t read my, can’t read my, no he can’t read my poker face” suggests that Gaga is aware of the power she has over her lover and that he cannot resist her charm. In the second verse, she claims “Russian roulette is not the same without a gun and baby when it’s love if it’s not rough it isn’t fun” as a metaphor suggesting that love is like a game of Russian roulette, dangerous, and unpredictable, and that it can only be exciting with a little bit of risk.
