don't make me come to Vegas
don't make me pull you out
of his bed
I am vigilant
that it will not be you
on the menu
he's serving up
for his friends

don't make me come to Vegas
don't make me pull him out
of your head
Athena will attest
that it could be done
and it has been done
and I think that I am
up to it

and the Jacaranda tree
is telling me of the
trouble you're in
just by the way
She bends
remember dancing and
wondering as you were swaying
what kind of woman you'd be
"what will be will be"
over my dead body

slip through your hand
again and again
slip through your hand
again and again

my old flame was a
jester and a joker
and a dealer of men,
they called him
the prince
Prince of Black Jacks and
of women and of anything
that slipped into his hands

"and the Ranches and the
mustangs" and the way
you said
"You can have all this,
except for me - you see
Lady Luck is my mistress
and you'll have to play
second to her wish"

and the Jacaranda tree
is telling me
It's not over yet,
just by the way She bends
"if you come breezin' through"
you said "I'll know that it's
you by the taste on my lips,
Bet on the desert's kiss"
I could slip
through your net
"over my dead body"

slip through your hand
again and again
slip through your hand
again and again

don't make me come to Vegas
don't make me come to Vegas
don't make me come to Vegas
hmmm

    General CommentThis song has bold lyrics and a melodic sound that stays with you, like many of Tori's tend to do. Very great.

    General CommentTori said she wrote this song for her neice. Supposedly, her niece was stuck in a situation that Tori had previously been in. This seems as if her niece is with a hurtful man, who Tori was previously with, or who is like someone Tori was with. Tori is saying i dont want to get back into this, dont make me come to vegas. (where her niece is)
