Joe Rockhead – King Of Las Vegas lyrics

You knew what you were doing when you did what you did
You used to do the right things but your standards slid
You're gonna pay the price
There's no going back to the way it was
Because a person's gotta pay for what a person does
You're gonna pay the price

It didn't have to happen that way
But it did cause baby you were taken chances
It didn't have to happen that way
But it did and now you're gonna suffer the circumstances

You shoulda learned to live by the golden rule
Because that karma thing can be awful cruel
You're gonna pay the price
Lost your soul gave in to your greed
When you turn your wants into what you need
You're gonna pay the price

It didn't have to happen that way
But it did cause baby you were taken chances
It didn't have to happen that way
But it did and now you're gonna suffer the circumstances

But if I was the king of Las Vegas
I'd wear the nugget ring
Yeah if I was the king of Las Vegas
It wouldn't mean a thing to me
But I'm not

Yeah one of these days when the tables turn
Yeah your gonna find out that when the truth is learned
You're gonna pay the price
Where you gonna run when it all falls through
I said where you gonna turn when they turn on you
You're gonna pay the price

It didn't have to happen that way
But it did cause baby you were taken chances
It didn't have to happen that way
But it did and now you're gonna suffer the circumstances

But if I was the king of Las Vegas
I'd wear the nugget ring
Yeah if I was the king of Las Vegas
It wouldn't mean a thing to me
But I'm not
