'Lady Gaga’s song “Poker Face,” hit #1 in 20 countries – largely due to its powerful stance on global warming. Not since “Fergalicious” have I been so moved. In an inspired bit of songwriting, Gaga initially sings from the perspective of our planet itself:Hmmmm; brilliant!

I’ll get him hot, show him what I’ve got
Oh, oh, oh, oh, ohhhh, ohh-oh-e-ohh-oh-oh,
I’ll get him hot, show him what I’ve got”
“I won’t tell you that I love youHere, Gaga ingeniously embraces simile, shifting to the perspective of the Kyoto Protocol and strongly implying that the long-term economic benefits of adoption will vastly outweigh the up-front costs of implementation.

Kiss or hug you
Cause I’m bluffin’ with my muffin
I’m not lying I’m just stunnin’ with my love-glue-gunning
Just like a chick in the casino
Take your bank before I pay you out
I promise this, promise this
Check this hand cause I’m marvelous”
