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' the devil may care
I'm just the devil with love to spare
So viva Las Vegas, viva Las Vegas, viva Las Vegas

Oh, how I wish that there were more
Than twenty-four hours in a day
But even if there were forty 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
So viva Las Vegas, viva Las Vegas, viva Las Vegas

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

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

Viva Las Vegas, viva Las Vegas
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,
Oh, 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

Oh, viva Las Vegas, up 'til the risin' sun
Viva Las Vegas, everybody's havin' fun
Viva Las Vegas, hey lucky you might be the one
Viva, viva Las Vegas

Boy, the king'll be proud of me, yep
Oh, Jimmy Martin
