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 

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 and the roulette wheel 
A fortune won and lost on ev'ry 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 armbandits crashin' 
All those 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 up well 
I'll always remember that I had a swingin' time 
I'm gonna give it ev'rything I've got 
Lady luck please let the dice stay hot 
Let me shout a seven with ev'ry shot 
Viva Las Vegas, Viva Las Vegas, 
Viva, Viva Las Vegas
