You gotta help me out
It's all a blur last night
We need a taxi 'cause you're
Hung over and I'm broke

I lost my fake ID
But you lost the motel key
Spare me your freaking
Dirty looks now don't blame me

You wanna cash out
And get the hell outta town
Don't be a baby
Remember what you told me

Shut up and put your money where your mouth is
That's what you get for waking up in Vegas
Get up and shake the glitter off your clothes now
That's what you get for waking up in Vegas

Why are these lights so bright?
Did we get hitched last night?
Dressed up like Elvis
Why am I wearing your class ring?

Don't call your mother
'Cause now we're partners in crime
Don't be a baby
Remember what you told me

Shut up and put your money where your mouth is
That's what you get for waking up in Vegas
Get up and shake the glitter off your clothes now
That's what you get for waking up in Vegas

You got me into this
Information overload, situation lost control
Send out an S.O.S.
And get some cash out
We're gonna tear up the town

Don't be a baby
Remember what you told me
Remember what you told me
Remember what you told me
Told me, told me, oh yeah

Shut up and put your money where your mouth is
That's what you get for waking up in Vegas
Get up and shake the glitter off your clothes now
That's what you get for waking up in Vegas

That's what you get, baby
Shake the glitter
Shake, shake, shake the glitter
Get me some cash out, baby
Get me some cash out, baby

    More gold from Katy Perry. Seldom has the music industry seen an artist so in touch with her image. Every song Perry releases cements her fan base, and she will likely continue to grow in popularity for some time. "Waking Up in Vegas" has little meaning, nevertheless offers the same cluttered, careless fun that people have come to expect from Katy Perry. The perfect guilty pleasure. The perfect release.

    For me, the meaning to this song, is about someone that's fallen off their high horses and realized they have nothing, and someone they've been particularly mean to in the past, comes back and tells them "shut up and put your money where your mouth is, that's what you get for waking up in vegas! Get up and shake the glitter of your clothes now, that's what you get for waking up in vegas.

    Don't don't be a baby remember what you told me".

    A couple ends up in Vegas, won a lot of cash. But lost all of it again. But in the end they won money again.

    This song is so catchy yet easy to get tired of because of the repetitive tune. But still, I like it. It's a heck of a song.
