Lyrics

Rachel:
I wanna hold em' like they do in Texas plays
Fold em', let em', hit me, raise it
Baby, stay with me

Love the 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, oh, oh, oh, ohhhh, ohh-oh-e-ohh-oh-oh
I'll get him hot and show him what I've got

Oh, oh, oh, oh, ohhhh, ohh-oh-e-ohh-oh-oh
I'll get him hot and show him what I've got

Shelby:
Can't read my
Can't read my
No he can't read my poker face

Rachel:
She's got to love nobody

Shelby:
Can't read my
Can't read my
No he can't read my poker face

Rachel and Shelby:
She's got to love nobody

P-p-p-poker face, p-p-poker face
P-p-p-poker face, p-p-poker face

Shelby:
I wanna roll with him
A hard pair we will be
A little gambling is fun when you're with me

Russian Roulette is not the same without a gun
And, baby, when it's love, if it ain't rough, it isn't fun

Oh, oh, oh, oh, ohhhh, ohh-oh-e-ohh-oh-oh
I'll get him hot and show him what I've got
(with Rachel: Oh, oh, oh, oh, ohhhh, ohh-oh-e-ohh-oh-oh, I'll get him hot)
Show him what I've got

Can't read my

Rachel:
Can't read my

Rachel and Shelby:
No he can't read my poker face
She's got to love nobody

Can't read my
Can't read my
No he can't read my poker face
She's got to love nobody

Shelby (with Rachel):
I won't tell you that (I love you)
Kiss or (hug you)
Cause I'm (bluffin') with my (muffin)
I'm not (lyin')
I'm just (stunnin' with my love-glue-gunnin')

Rachel:
Just like a chick in the casino
Take your bank before I pay you out

Shelby:
I promise this, promise this
Check this hand 'cause I am marvelous
I'm marvelous

Rachel:
I'm marvelous

Rachel and Shelby:
I'm marvelous
So marvelous

She's got to love nobody
Can't read my
Can't read my
No he can't read my poker face
She's got to love nobody

Trivia

  • This is the second out of four Rachel-Shelby duets, the first being I Dreamed a Dream, the third Somewhere and the fourth Next to Me.
    • However it's their first duet during which they actually interact (I Dreamed a Dream was a dream sequence).
  • Idina Menzel, who plays Shelby, performed this song during LIVE: Barefoot at the Symphony. During her performance she stated that she didn't think it isn't a suitable song for a mother-daughter reunion because "there are odd words in this song... baked goods [referring to "muffin"]..." Source

Errors

  • When Rachel and Shelby are singing Poker Face at the piano, Rachel starts out in front of her music folder and Shelby opposite her - then they switch sides. Later in the song, they're back to their original positions even though they haven't shifted back for us to see on screen.
  • When Shelby leaves, she doesn't take her bag with her.
