VIVA, LAS VEGAS!
By: Wayne Brown
A glowing maze of neon perched upon miles of desert sand
Known to some as Sin City, home of all vices known to man
A virtual Mecca built on gambling and the glitz of bright light
A place like no one has seen; totally new unto their sight
Towering hotels and casinos fill with tourists here for fun
Neon lights adorn in color as bright as the daytime sun
Money flows from the pockets in all ways and directions
The lure to come here and imbibe is much like an infection
People from all walks of life; the glamorous, the poor and rich
They all come for entertainment and to satisfy their gambling itch
By day they nap, swim, and walk the streets to see all the shops
By night, they play the gaming until in the wee hours they stop
There's craps, blackjack, and poker tables for those who love the deal
There’s machines of every kind and type; and roulette’s spinning wheel
Oh the endless games of chance one can play in the hope they have won
Some get lucky and do, many don’t, but all seem to have some fun
The shows are glittering sights of every conceivable talent and act
The entertainment is always amazing and that you can count as fact
Singers, musicians and dancers, magicians, and comedians all abound
They do their thing and leave you wanting one more night on the town
A melting pot of humanity all seeking the bright lights on the sand
A world of excitement and entertainment; everything at hand
Have yourself some fun and head back home to your wife and kitty
But always remember what happens here always stays in Sin City
