Here Are the New Lyrics to Beyoncé’s “Texas Hold ‘Em”:

Chorus:
This ain’t Texas (Woo) / Ain’t no hold ’em (Hey) / So lay your cards down, down, down, down / So park your Lexus (Woo) / And throw your keys up (Hey) / Stick around, ’round, ’round, ’round, ’round (Stick around) / And I’ll be damned if I can’t slow dance with you / Come pour some sugar on me, honey too / It’s a real life boogie and a real life hoedown / Don’t be a b–ch, come take it to the floor now.

There’s a tornado (There’s a tornado) / In my city (In my city) / In the basement (In the basement), That s–t ain’t pretty (S–t ain’t pretty) / Rugged whiskey (Rugged whiskey) / Cause we survivin’ (‘Cause we survivin’) / Off red cup kisses, sweet redemption, passin’ time, yeah.

Pre-Chorus:
Ooh, one step to the right / We headin’ to the dive bar we always thought was nice / Ooh, run me to the left / Then spin me in the middle, boy, I can’t read your mind.

Repeat Chorus

And I’ll be damned if I cannot dance with you / Come and pour some liquor on me, honey too / It’s a real life boogie and a real life hoedown / Don’t be a b–ch, come take it to the floor now (Woo).

Standard Version Jump to Second Verse

New “Texas Hold ‘Em (Pony Up) Remix” Lyrics:

(spoken) Now I’m gonna need all my cowboys to the dance floor / Get to the dance floor.

Woke up this morning / My heart keeps racin’ / Straight to the bottom / We all need salvation (Come on take it to the floor now, ooh) / Need you too in this drought, take me downtown / Gonna leave the truck, whiskey baby, let’s get weekend wasted / Might as well just throw it all / And pony up, b—h don’t hold back on me.

It’s a rodeo, we gonna do-se-doe / Rope me in and then you take me home / Give me all your love, all of your sins / All of your f—-s, pony up / Hats up to you, but it’s boots on the ground / Sippin’ on a Tennessee, spinnin’ me around / I just see you with a whiskey / I’m drinkin’ straight, baby, all day / It’s a hell of a life / Baby I just might / Throw a party for the whole damn town / Chasin’ my sins away with brown, oh brown / I’ma need another round, round, round, round.

One for me, one for my lover / Pony up and salute your town / Chasin’ our sins away with brown.

Pony Up Remix Jumps to Outro

Standard Version Second Verse:
There’s a heatwave (There’s a heatwave) / Coming at us (Coming at us) Too hot to think straight (Too hot to think straight) / Too cold to panic (Too cold to panic) / All of the problems just feel dramatic (Just feel dramatic) / And now we’re runnin’ to the first spot that we find, yeah.

Pre-Chorus

Repeat Chorus

And I’ll be damned if I cannot dance with you / Come and pour some liquor on me, honey too / It’s a real life boogie and a real life hoedown / Don’t be a b–ch, come take it to the floor now (Woo).

Take it to the floor now, ooh / Hoops, spurs, boots / To the floor now, ooh / Tuck, back, oops (Ooh, ooh, ooh) / Shoot, come take it to the floor now, ooh.

Outro:
And I’ll be damned if I cannot dance with you / Baby, pour that sugar and liquor on me too / Furs, spurs, boots / Solargenic, photogenic, shoot.
