Viva! Las Vegas    (1964)

Bright light city gonna set my soul, gonna set my soul on fire.
Gotta whole lotta money that's ready to burn, so get those stakes up higher.
There's a thousand pretty women waiting out there.
They're all living the devil-may-care,
And I'm just a devil with love to spare, so
Viva Las Vegas
Viva Las Vegas

How I wish that there were more than the 24 hours in the day.
But even if there were 40 more, I wouldn't sleep a minute away.
Oh, there's blackjack and poker and the roulette wheel.
A fortune won and lost on every deal
All you need's a strong heart and a nerve of steel.
Viva Las Vegas
Viva Las Vegas

Viva Las Vegas with your neon flashing,
And your one-armed bandits crashing
All those hopes down the drain.
Viva Las Vegas turning day into night time,
Turning night into daytime.
If you see it once, you'll never be the same again.

I'm gonna keep on running, gonna have me some fun, if it costs me my very last dime.
If I wind up broke well I'll always remember I had a swinging time.
I'm gonna give it everything I got
Lady Luck please 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
