Viva Las Vegas Lyrics

by Bruce Springsteen

Bright light city gonna set my soul
Gonna set my soul on fire
I gotta whole lotta money
That's ready to burn so
Get those stakes up higher

Well, there's a thousand pretty women
Who're waitin' out there
They're all livin', just a devil may care
And I'm just a devil with a love to spare

So, viva Las Vegas, viva Las Vegas

Oh, how I wish that there were
More than 24 hours in a day
Even if there were 40 more
I wouldn't sleep a minute away

Oh well, there's blackjack, poker
And a 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

Well, viva Las Vegas with a
Neon flashing and your
One-armed bandits crashing
All your hopes down the drain

Yeah, viva Las Vegas turnin'
Day into night time turnin'
Night into day time if you've seen it once
You'll never be the same again

I'm gonna keep you 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 me a swinging time

Now, 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
