The lyrics to Lady Gaga’s Poker Face are seriously rude and people have only just realised

People are only just realising the true lyrics to the popular Lady Gaga track 'Poker Face', and it is fair to say they are quite rude.

Loading…

'Poker Face' released an incredible 14 years ago, and was the first of four UK number 1s for Lady Gaga.

But all these years, a lot of people have actually been singing it completely wrong.

I think most of us sing it like this... Po-po-po-poker face, po-po-po-poker face (Mum-mum-mum-mah).

Sounds right, doesn't it?

Well, for all these years we have got it wrong - very wrong indeed.

Many music fans, even those who like to think they know every single lyric of their favourite songs have admitted they certainly didn't get these words right.

The actual lyrics to the Lady Gaga classic go: Po-po-po-poker face, fu-fu-f*** her face (Mum-mum-mum-mah), Po-po-po-poker face, fu-fu-f*** her face (Mum-mum-mum-mah).

One person on Twitter said: "I WAS TODAY YEARS OLD WHEN I FOUND OUT POKER FACE's LYRICS TURNS INTO "f*** her face."

A second added: "So you’re telling me the lyrics to Lady Gaga - Poker Face are “P-p-p-poker face, f-f-f*** her face”?! WHAT?! "

And a third said: "Why does Spotify lyrics say this I always thought it was po-po-po-poker face, po-po-poker face."

Another added: "Just realized that in the poker face lyrics it says "po-po-po-poker face fu-fu-f*** her face" kinda wild."

And a third said: "Probably the biggest win I knew as a little monster was actually learning that the lyrics comes off as 'P-P-p-poker face, f-f-fuck her face' 13 years after its release."

Funnily enough, Lady Gaga herself has never denied these explicit lyrics, and she even made a small nod at them in a 2009 interview.

When she was playing at iHeartRadio Wango Tango - an annual concert held by the US redio station KIIS FM - she admitted the station was the only one to actually censor the song correctly.

Speaking in 2009, she said: "KIIS FM is the smartest radio station in the whole world and I'll tell you why. Because this song, it got played all over the world on tens of thousands of radio stations, but KIIS FM was the only one that said I had to censor my lyric because they thought I might be saying something bad.

"And out of all the radio stations in the world that played this record over and over, KIIS FM was the only one that was right and caught on."
