Life springs eternal 
On a gaudy neon street 
Not that I care at all 

I spent the best part of my losing streak 
In an Army Jeep 
For what I can't recall 

Oh I'm banging on my TV set 
And I check the odds 
And I place my bet 

I pour a drink 
And I pull the blind 
And I wonder what I'll find 

I'm leaving Las Vegas 
Lights so bright 
Palm sweat blackjack 
On a Saturday night 
Leaving Las Vegas 
Leaving for good, for good 
I'm leaving for good 
I'm leaving for good 

Used to be I could drive 
Up to Barstow for the night 
Find some crossroad trucker 

To demonstrate his might 
But these days it seems 
Nowhere is far enough away 

So I'm leaving Las Vegas today 

I'm leaving Las Vegas 
Oh, lights so bright 
Blackjack on a Saturday night 
I'm leaving Las Vegas 
I'm leaving for good, for good 

I'm standing in the middle of the desert 
Waiting for my ship to come in 
But now no joker, no jack, no king 
Can take this loser hand 
And make it win 

I'm leaving Las Vegas 
Oh, I'm leaving Las Vegas
For good, for good
Leaving Las Vegas 

I quit my job as a dancer 
At the Lido des Girls 
And we're dealing blackjack until one or two 

Such a muddy line between 
The things you want 
And the things you have to do 

Oh, leaving Las Vegas 
Lights so bright 
Palm sweat blackjack 
On a Saturday night 
Leaving Las Vegas 
I'm leaving for good
Oh, I'm leaving Las Vegas
And the lights so bright
Palm sweat blackjack
On a Saturday night
I'm leaving Las Vegas
I'm leaving for good, for good
Oh, I'm leaving Las Vegas
And the lights so bright
Leaving Las Vegas
And I won't be back
No, no
No, I won't be back
Not this time
