"Viva Las Vegas" as written by Mort Shuman and Doc Pomus....
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

Oh, 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, the roulette wheel
A fortune won and lost on every deal
All you need's a strong heart and nerves of steel
Viva Las Vegas, viva Las Vegas

Viva Las Vegas with the real flashy
And your one arm bandits cashin'
Here comes all your dreams
Viva Las Vegas [incomprehensible] rolling
And Tres Rios flowing
Once you taste it, you'll never be the same

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, well
I'll always remember that I had a rockin' time

I'm gonna give it everythin' 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
