Stuff You Should Know

“If you see it once/You’ll never be the same again…”


The above photo was taken in The Entertainment Capital of the World, this nation’s very own Sodom and Gomorrah—Las Vegas, Nevada. Frequent TDOY readers will recognize the two women as sister Kat (on the left) and sister Debbie (on the right)…and while Kat is no stranger to Vegas (hell, if she could find a swell-paying job there she’d put the ‘rents out on the street and sell the house faster than you can say “Jacks or better to open”) it was Debbie’s first visit and by the looks of things, she appears to be having fun. (I myself have never been to Vegas…but then I gave up sin and wickedness a long time ago.)

So this one is for the sibs…

vivalasvegasBright 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 blackjack and poker and the roulette wheel
A fortune won and lost on every 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 everything I’ve got
Lady luck please let the dice stay hot
Let me shoot a seven with every shot
Viva Las Vegas
Viva Las Vegas
Viva Las Vegas
Viva Las Vegas!!!
