Australian Unwrapped’s Chosen Song from Lady Gaga:

Poker Face

Length: 3:57

Release: 2009

Opening Lyrics:

I wanna hold ’em like they do in Texas, please
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, whoa, oh, oh
Oh, oh-oh
I’ll get him hot, show him what I got
Oh, whoa, oh, oh
Oh, oh-oh
I’ll get him hot, show him what I got
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’s got me like nobody)
