Song Description

Risk taking in life has been compared to playing poker -- we don't know the outcome, and we have to go all in, to succeed.

Story Behind the Song

The poem was written as encouragement for risk taking when the future is unknown -- I put it to music and gave it an energetic feel.

Lyrics

Poker, Poker

Chorus: Poker, poker
Tu joues ton Coup de Poker
Les risques, les risques
Tu les prends maintenant

La raison, Tais-toi
La sagesse n'a pas
La dimension de ta folie

Qui n'ose, n'a rien
Tu fonces, ou bien
Le plafond te retient

Hesitation? Reflexion?
Coup de poing sur la table
Balayer l'impossible

Mets ton courage, le Ciel t'aidera
Ne sois pas sage, ou t'en creveras
Que ton message soit: va

Ni les frileux, ni les chagrins,
Ne ferment tes yeux, bloquent tes mains
Va le front haut et joue ta peau

Poker, Poker (translation)

Poker, poker:
Poker's the game that you play.
It's risky, it's risky;
Try to have your way.

Voice of reason; let it go.
No place for wisdom -- it's fortune's foe.

Nothing ventured; nothing gained.
Dig down deep or by the limit be restrained.

Dare you hesitate?
Should you reflect?
Bang your fist on the table,
What's lost, you must forget...

Help from above, if you are brave
You'll surely fold, if you behave.
Just let your motto be... Go!

No second thoughts; no regrets.
Eyes open, guard your cards; place your bets.
Hold your head high and play for all you're worth!
