Viva Las Vegas

Bright light city, gonna set my soul, gonna set my soul on fire
There's a whole lot a money just ready to burn so
get those stakes up higher
There's a thousand pretty women just waitin' out there
They're all livin Devil may care and I'm just the Devil with love to spare
Viva Las Vegas
Viva Las Vegas

How I wish that there were more than 24 hours in a day
But even if there were 40 more I wouldn't sleep a
minute away
There's Blackjack, Poker and the Roulette Wheel
A fortune won and lost on every deal
All you need is money and nerves of steel
Viva Las Vegas
Viva Las Vegas

Viva Las Vegas with your neon flashing
And your one-armed bandits crashing
All your hopes down the drain
Viva Las Vegas turning day into night time turnin
'night into day time if you've seen it once you'll
never be the same again

Gonna keep on the run, I'm gonna have me some fun
If it costs me my very last dime
If I wind up broke well I'll always remember that I had a swinging time
I'm gonna give it every thing I got
Lady Luck won't you let the dice stay hot
Let me shoot a seven with every shot
Viva Las Vegas
Viva Las Vegas
Viva Las Vegas
Viva Viva
Las Vegas
