---------------VERSE 1---------------------
NEW YORK, NEW YORK, NO BROADWAY NIGHTS
EXCALIBUR, THE KNIGHTS IN TIGHTS.
THE WAITRESS WINKS, YOU WANT SOME MORE?
SHE'S IN YOUR LAP, BUT NOT HARDCORE.
IT'S VEGAS, PAL, YOU KNOW THE SCORE.

THE EIFFEL TOWER, NO PARLE FRANCAIS
THE GONDOLAS, NO DOGE TODAY
A PYRAMID, OK, NOT QUITE.
THE ODDS ARE BAD, YOUR CHANCES SLIGHT.
IT'S VEGAS, PAL, YOU GOT IT RIGHT.

-----------PRE-CHORUS 1----------------
PLAY THE ODDS, KEEP IT COOL.
SEND THE DEALER BACK TO SCHOOL.

---------------CHORUS------------------
ACTION ON THE STRIP
YOU PLAY YOU TAKE THE ODDS.
ACTION ON THE STRIP.
YOU PRAY FOR FRIENDLY GODS.

ACTION ON THE STRIP
IT'S NEVER JUST A GAME
ACTION ON THE STRIP
YOU'RE NEVER JUST THE SAME.
ACTION ON THE STRIP

----------------VERSE 2-----------------------
THE LIMOSENES, WHISTLE OR WAVE
THE DANCE CLUBS WHERE EACH NIGHT'S A RAVE
FULL BOD MASSAGE, LEARN HOW TO FEEL
CONFETTI WORLD, NOTHING IS REAL
IT'S VEGAS, PAL, YOU KNOW THE DEAL

THE FRIENDLY GIRLS WITH FIVE-INCH HEELS
THE SILK-SUIT GUYS WITH FRIENDLY DEALS
THE PIT-BOSS, HEY, NO SMILE IN SIGHT.
THE ROSY GLOW, NO DAY, NO NIGHT.
IT'S VEGAS, PAL, YOU GOT IT RIGHT.


-----------PRE-CHORUS 2----------------
PASS-LINE BET, COME-OUT ROLL.
LOSE, YOU'RE IN A DEEP DARK HOLE

---------------CHORUS------------------
(AS ABOVE)

----------BRIDGE------------------
THERE'S NO BIG WIN WILL EVER BRING
THAT GIRL BACK HOME TO ME
WHERE SHE BELONGS TO BE AGAIN

------------CHORUS----------------
(As above)
