"Viva Las Vegas" as written by and Mort Shuman 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' the 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 twenty-four hours in the day
Now even if there were forty more
I wouldn't sleep a minute away

Oh, the 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 your 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 then I'll always remember
That I had a swingin' time

Well, I'm gonna give it everything I've got
A lady luck please, let the dice stay hot
And I'm gonna seven with every shot

Viva Las Vegas
Viva Las Vegas
Viva Las Vegas
Viva, Viva Las Vegas
