lyrics

Poker Face

Tip-toe
through the back door
of your scandalous alibi
Because I don't believe what I'm hearing
Guess I'll just have to step inside

What's behind the curtain?
Yes I'll just have to drop a hint
But you're stone cold
Stoic
Don't tense a muscle
Drop your eyes
or even flinch

So I poke a hole in your disguise
and I watch the lies start dripping

And I'm stunned and shocked
and hypnotized
when I realize
That this is bullshit
Deception, fraudulent, fake

Where do you work, girl?
How much do you make?
And is it worth it?

(Cuz if it ain't....)

Are you thinking about what you've done
Are you about to lose it?
I bet you'd like someone to notice
I bet you'd like someone to care

It's serendipity
Ha ha ha, you're fucking stupid
And we keep moving on, moving along
but you're not there

Now you could never tip-toe now could you?
No, subtlety is not your forte
But somehow you hustled us all
with a grin
On an immaculate poker face

So I blow a hole in your disguise
and I watch the lies start gushing

And I'm sick
I can't believe my eyes
when I realize
How much is bullshit
Deception
Fraudulant
Fake

Where do you work girl, how much do you make???
And is it worth it?

(What's at stake?)

Are you thinking about what you've done?
Are you about to lose it?
I bet you'd like someone to love you
I bet you'd like someone to care
It's serendipity
Ha ha ha, you're fucking stupid
And we keep moving on, moving along
but you're not there

Things have been about the same
since you've been gone
And they get better every day
that you're not here

And now that I know where you've been
I can guess
what you'll become

And it ain't pretty

And I don't care

I really hope you had fun fun fun!
You fucking loser

I bet you're just about ready to die
I bet you'd like someone to intervene...

...go on and get your gun
and just fucking do it

Because there ain't nobody left to love you
There ain't nobody left to care

There ain't nobody left to love you
There ain't nobody left to care
Nobody left to love you
Nobody left to care

No one
will ever
love you

So just take your fucking fee
and disappear
