Viva Las Vegas

Viva Las Vegas

Spoken dialogue by Elvis Presley:
I like it, I enjoy rock and roll. Lot of people like it, like of people don't.
But, uh, as long as it lasts, as long as it sells, I'll continue doing it, as long as that's what the people want.
And if they change, if it dies out, I'll try to do something else.
And if that doesn't work, I'll just say "Well I had my day."

Hey blackjack dealer!
Come on, hit me man!

Bright lights city gonna set my soul, gonna set my soul on fire
I got a whole lotta money that's ready to burn so get those stakes up high
Well there's a thousand pretty women just waiting out there
They're all living just the devil may care
And I'm just a devil with love to spare
So viva Las Vegas
Viva Las Vegas

How I wish that there were more than 24 hours in a day
Even if there were 40 more, I wouldn't sleep a minute away
Well there's blackjack, poker, and a roulette wheel
A fortune won and lost on every deal
All you need is money and nerves of steel
Viva Las Vegas
Viva Las Vegas

Well, viva Las Vegas with the neon flashing and your one-armed bandits crashing
All your hopes down the drain
Yeah, viva Las Vegas turning day into night time, I'm turning night into day time if you seen it once
You'll never be the same again

Johnny I'm going to the craps table to throw some die
Ah come on sweet sugar
Ah come on give it to me baby
Hmm sweetheart

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 me a swinging time
I'm gonna give it everything I got
Lady Luck won't you let the dice stay hot
Let me shoot the seven with every shot
Viva Las Vegas
Viva Las Vegas
Viva Las Vegas
Viva, viva, Las Vegas

Hey man, you going anywhere near Bakersfield?
I want a ride back home
Yeahhh, whoa!
