"Poker Face" is a song by Lady Gaga. This song was sung by Eric Cartman in the Season Thirteen episode, "Whale Whores", while he is playing Rock Band with Kenny McCormick and Kyle Broflovski.

Background

While they are playing this song on Rock Band, they are interrupted by Stan Marsh who shares his concerns over the Japanese slaughtering whales and dolphins, asking them to help him do something about it. Cartman and Kenny state that they don't care and Kyle claims that he hates it but he cannot do anything about it. After a brief argument, they resume playing this song, changing the lyrics to mock Stan's concerns.

The song was later re-recorded with different lyrics for a Rock Band promotion, as part of the downloadable expansion pack. Both Lady Gaga's original version and Cartman's rendition were included in this release.

Trivia

  • "Poker Face" is an expression of nonchalance; the choice of song reflects Cartman and Kenny's nonchalance towards the slaughter of whales and dolphins.

Lyrics

Lady Gaga (Original)

Mum mum mum mah
Mum mum mum mah
Mum mum mum mah
Mum mum mum mah
Mum mum mum

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)
LoveGame 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)

Ft. Eric Cartman (Remix)

Mum mum mum mah
Mum mum mum mah
Mum mum mum mah
Mum mum mum mah
Mum mum mum

I wanna hold 'em like they do in Texas Plays
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

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
I don't give a crap about whales, so go and hug a tree (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

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

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)(4x)

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
(mum-mum-mum-mah)
p-p-p-poker face, p-p-poker face
(mum-mum-mum-mah)
