Elvis Presley’s another rock and roll piece in which he hails the legendary Las Vegas. He emphasizes all the main and inalienable elements of this city of sin: lights that won’t turn off the whole year, 24-hours pace, the high stakes, thousand pretty women around, roulette, blackjack, no minute for sleeping, neon flashing, and the mind crashing, the night time turns into a daytime, dice, luck and so on. This is the pompous ode to the city and what it represents: sin, gamble, enjoyment and never-ending pace of living, which people from the world around support in its magnificent casinos.

Viva Las Vegas Song Lyrics

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
