Music & Lyrics by Frank Lamphere
I awoke one morning, had a vivid dream
Thought "Well I'll be damned"
Had this song 'bout casinos and music
buzzin' through my head
Took four days off work,
then I scrammed!
Just booked a flight to Las Vegas
Off to where high-rollers go to play
On the boulevard,
there’s a tournament today!
A gambler said the air smells just like “C” notes
and Frank and Dino’s work, is still applauded there
The dream comes true, at last
I’ve had a lifetime to prepare
On Fremont Street, you see old Vegas
Not to-be-missed, I hear it's quite the show
Desert sky, after sundown
The perfect backdrop for that famous neon glow
Gonna’ take a drive around Las Vegas
Take-in places, Louis Prima used to swing
And Elvis Presley, right there, was crowned “the king”
I've studied books about gambling
And now have confidence enough to win,
Twenty-one, one-armed bandits.
And what excitement when those dice
begin their fall!
Today, I'm heading to Las Vegas
I just know that lady luck will come my way!
Be it known loud and clear
There’s no doubt, there’s no fear
Las Vegas, I'm here!
