Love Game Lyrics

Let's have some fun this beat is sick
I wanna take a ride on your disco stick(x2)

I wanna kiss you
but if I do then I might miss you babe
Its complicated and stupid
got my ass sqeezed by sexy cupid
I guess he want to play, want to...

    Well...a close look at the lyrics can almost tell you the meaning, if you have a knack for finding them.

    By the "have some fun...beat is sick...wanna ride disco stick..." part, I think they are at a club, having nonsexual fun, she desires to go more, but is unsure if this will ruin them. This is almost impossible to miss in "wanna kiss you...but if I do...I might miss you" then the part about her "ass being squeezed by sexy cupid" is obviously stating that she really desires him, and wants to play the lovegame. Then "hold me...love me...just wanna touch for a minute...maybe 3 secs is enough for my heart to quit it" meaning, if she can be with, and touch him, and love him for just a minute, she can stop desiring him. Again with the discostick part. Then the chorus, which is questioning his intentions in her, if it is for love or FAME. Now the fame has become a third person in this lovegame. Now this part just turns me on! LOL "Im on a mission...involves touching...you indicated interest...im educated in sex...i want it bad" this is the part where she gives up on holding back...she wants him so badly, and she knows he wants her, she stops caring what his intentions were, and is fixing to purposely lose this game. The next part, my favorite "I see you staring there from across the block, smile on mouth, hand on huh (discostick)...the story of us, always starts the same...boy, girl, huh(discostick), and a game, a game, a game..." Meaning she realizes the story will just keep repeating itself, she will never reach game over, unless she ends it.

    I think its the troubles of dating someone while famous... That's the lovegame.

    The first verse talks about how she wants to be with him, but she's unsure if he wants her or the fame, hence the last line "Guess he wants to play, wants to play a lovegame, a lovegame"

    The pre-chorus is her thinking that if she touches him then her desire will disappear, which is when she starts saying that she wants to ride his discostick, which when you take out iscost when you say it... Well, you get it. When she says "Don't think too much, just bust that kick" means that if he doesn't think twice then she can tell if he wants her truly.

    The chorus straight out asks if he wants the love or fame, or if he's in the actual game.

    The second verse is her luring the guy in. Then after she wants to play the lovegame because she wants to know if he's true.

    The bridge is the first sight of him, and first thinking about the game.

    Really, this song runs backwards when considering chronological order.

    I see a lot of questions around the internet about "I wanna take a ride on your disco stick". What exactly is a "disco stick"?

    It's a euphemism...take only the first 2 and last 2 letters, and then you'll get the idea.

    It IS a Love Game, after all. :-)

    In an unterview gaga talks about going up to a guy and going "hey I wanna take a ride on your disco stick" immediately cutting to the chase and being a strong powerful woman and not needing permission.

    This is sort of how pretending to "love" is like a video game where you know it isn't real but it passes time when you're bored. Fun.

    Its my most favorite lady gaga song in the world ! its not satanic, at least to me yet. Its cold hearted. Disco stick is meaning a cock ! I love this song because its not gay. Like her other music. Its a song about love at first sight. Or lust at first sight. So un complicated. I luv it

    I think "Love Game" is about her sleeping with some guy and she's afraid the relationship won't work out.

    A disco stick is a meth pipe! Take a ride? AKA it gets you high!

    "I wanna kiss you but if you do then I might miss you babe" She's referring to the want to take a hit of meth, but once you do you'll fiend for it aka "miss you"

    "Maybe 3 seconds as in it for my heart to quit it"? It takes 3 seconds from smoking the pipe to reach your heart!

    "I'm on a mission, and it involves some heavy touching yeah" when you're on meth you are always on a mission for sex! This song is PERFECT to make the song uber sexual while still maintaining the hidden meaning.

    "Do you want love or do you want fame? Are you in the game?" The song in itself is a game. "Love" meaning the song can be about sex. "Fame" meaning the song can be about meth. You pick your interpretation. If you can see it from both sides you are "In the Game" LOL

    Lady gaga is gay. I'm not trying to make u mad. So she wants to play a love game with her lover.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    She's educated in ahem..the reproductive system (Guess she got an A in Biology then! :)) , wants to kiss him,
    and is flirting/begging/threatening? (wink) him to er...hit the sack with her?

    She Wants to play! Need I say more? ;)

    Hmm...a last thought... a disco stick (LOTS of people are confused) is er...your guy/dream guy's...tool of reproduction. (Are you thinking about disco now? I won't go there...I think you know HOW the er...the act of reproduction goes!)

    Thanks for checking out my stupid analysis!
    Go play a LoveGame with somebody! ;-)
