Viva! Las Vegas Lyrics

by ZZ Top

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

There's a thousand pretty women
Just a-waitin' out there
And they're all livin' devil may care
And I'm just the devil with a love to spare

Viva Las Vegas
Viva Las Vegas

{Ah, thank-ya very much baby}

And how I wish that there were more
Than twenty-four hours in the day
But even if there were forty more
I wouldn't sleep a minute away

Oh, there's blackjack and poker
And a 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
Viva Las Vegas

Viva Las Vegas with your neon flashin'
And your one-armed bandits crashin'
All those hopes down the drain

Viva Las Vegas turnin' day into nighttime
Turn the night into daytime
If you see it once, you'll never come home 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 then 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 Las Vegas
Viva, Viva
