Viva Las Vegas Lyrics

by Elvis Presley

Bright light city gonna set my soul
Gonna set my soul on fire
Got a whole lot of money that's ready to burn
So get those stakes up higher

There's a thousand pretty women waitin' out there
And 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 the twenty-four hours in the day
'Cause even if there were forty more
I wouldn't sleep a minute away

Oh, there's black jack 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 you neon flashin'
And your one arm bandits crashin'
All those hopes down the drain

Viva Las Vegas turnin' day into nighttime
Turnin' night into daytime
If you see it once you'll never be the same again

I'm 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 up well
I'll always remember that I had a swingin' time

I'm gonna give it everything I've 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
