You're a single mom with three kids
And just as many jobs
Your candle burns at both ends
But you can't make it stop
You're a farmer on a John Deere
Honest work for little pay
Throw that thing in park
It's time to play...

{Chorus}
Like it's midnight in Vegas
Mardi Gras in New Orleans
New Year's Eve in New York City
You know what I mean
It's like lovers in Paris
Sunset Strip in L.A.
Doesn't matter where you are
Well, it's alright,
It's alright to play

Oh, yes it is

Where there ain't no drugs or doctors
Who can get you what you need
I've got the got the magic potion
And it doesn't cost a thing
Yeah, you've seen some hard times
Life just works out that way
But when you're smack dab in the middle
You gotta play...

{Chorus}
Like it's midnight in Vegas
Mardi Gras in New Orleans
New Year's Eve in New York City
You know what I mean
It's like lovers in Paris
Sunset Strip in L.A.
Doesn't matter where you are
Well, it's alright,
It's alright to play

Hey, Hey

Like a kiss in the moonlight
Barefoot walks on the beach
Like sipping champagne straight from a bottle
You know what I mean...

{Chorus}
Like it's midnight in Vegas
Mardi Gras in New Orleans
New Year's Eve in New York City
You know what I mean
Like lovers in Paris
Sunset Strip in L.A.
Doesn't matter where you are
Well, it's alright,
It's alright to play

(It's alright to play, it's alright, it's alright, it's alright to play)

C'mon, C'mon, C'mon,
(Yeah, it's alright, it's alright)

(It's alright to play, it's alright, it's alright, it's alright to play)

It's alright to play

(It's alright to play, it's alright, it's alright, it's alright to play)
(Yeah, it's alright, it's alright)

Well, it's alright to play (it's alright, it's alright)

Yeah, it's alright to play
Yeah, it's alright to play
(Yeah, it's alright, it's alright)

Well, it's alright, it's alright
Well, it's alright, it's alright
It's alright, yeah
