Bruce Springsteen – Viva Las Vegas lyrics

Bright light city
gonna set my
gonna set my
soul on fire
There's a whole
lot a money just
ready to burn so
get those stakes
up higher
There's a
thousand pretty
women just
waitin' out there
They're all livin
Devil may care
and I'm just the
Devil with love to
Viva Las Vegas
Viva Las Vegas

How I wish that
there were more
than 24 hours in
a day
But even if there
were 40 more I
wouldn't sleep a
minute away
There's Blackjack,
Poker and the
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

Viva Las Vegas
with your neon
And your
bandits crashing
All your
hopes down the
Viva Las Vegas
turning day into
night time turnin
'night into day
time if you've seen it once you'll
never be the
same again


Gonna keep on
the run
I'm gonna have
me some fun
If it costs me
my very last
If I wind up
broke well I'll
always remember
that I had a
swinging time
I'm gonna give it
every thing I got
Lady Luck won't
you let the dice
stay hot
Let me shoot a
seven with every
Viva Las Vegas
Viva Las Vegas
Viva Las Vegas
Viva Viva
Las Vegas
