Fabulous Las Vegas Bridge

fabulous Las Vegas bridge / I stand in the heat and I sing

yonder’s the Statue of Liberty / such a pretty little thing

you’re right, she’s not all that little / as she winks at the Eiffel Tower

I have enough money for Gallo / only been out here about an hour

fabulous Las Vegas bridge / a woman with legs as long

as my shot at winning her / walks right by my song

people pose with Frankenstein / for zany photographs

photos for their Facebooks / all their friends will laugh

fabulous Las Vegas bridge / yonder’s the MGM

Jimmy Buffett always plays there / the last time I saw Jim

was way back in ’99 / I got into a fight

with some rowdy Parrotheads / it was quite a night

got my butt kicked

fabulous Las Vegas bridge / I made this cardboard sign

that says I need money for beer / even though I always drink wine

listen to that ambulance / they go by every few minutes

one just drove right under me / I’m glad that I’m not in it

My Lovely Wino

baby you drink like a Great White shark / you drink like a Great White shark

the bartender grins when you tip him a fin / you drink like a Great White shark

baby you drink like Hemingway / you drink like Hemingway

I’ve had a lot of fun playing ‘hide my shotgun’ / but you drink like Hemingway

baby you drink like a sinking ship / you drink like a sinking ship

please have a burrito before you get torpedoed / you drink like a sinking ship

baby you drink like an asteroid / you drink like an asteroid

you’re hitting that ocean with your lips in motion

hitting that ocean with your lips in motion

baby you even drink more than me / you even drink more than me

the bartender grins / “it’s closing time friends”

and you say “hey, let’s drive on out to VIVA LAS VEGAS”

Maybe I’ll Move To Vegas

maybe I’ll move to Vegas / tell the Brine Shrimp*  “see ya later”

curl my hair and get some glasses / be a Weird Al imitator

gonna drive all the women crazy / singin’ ’bout my bologna

do  ‘Another One Rides the Bus’ / for the old folks from Sedona

hey maybe I’ll move to Vegas

maybe I’ll move to Vegas / it’s right down I-15

I’ll try not to get in a car crash / I don’t need no ruptured spleen

gonna buy a Big Mac in Beaver / with some french fries and a Sprite

Beaver,city of magic / Beaver, city of lights

hey maybe I’ll move to Vegas

maybe I’ll move to Vegas / put a slot machine in my kitchen

my friends from L.A. will come to visit me / they’ll say “wow dude, how bitchen”

gonna find me a forty-something waitress / who looks good in a mini-skirt

I’ll get in an all night poker game / probably lose my Hawaiian shirt

hey maybe I’ll move to Vegas

move it

maybe I’ll move to Vegas /  maybe not, I don’t know

I’ve been watching ‘Ocean’s 11′ / on the Late Late Show

we could start up another Rat Pack / all those other imitators and I

I’m talkin’ Elvis and Neil Diamond / and that lonely Orbison guy

hey maybe I’ll move to Vegas

I said maybe I’ll move to Vegas

* this song was written and recorded in Salt Lake City, Utah. Brine Shrimp are tiny gastronomical delights you can scoop right out of The Great Salt Lake by the bucket-full. I recommend washing  them down with Wasatch Beer.

Walmart Pigeons

I walk out of Walmart / twelve-pack in every hand

I’m wearing one old flip-flop / traveling this troubled land

pigeons on the parking lot / hot sun blazing down

pigeons wearing little flip-flops / what a fabulous town

oh humongous Walmart / spaceship independence day

I’m too old for all this beer / they sell it to me anyway

pigeons on the parking lot / I hand a homeless guy a brew

he’s  yelling “Alfred Hitchcock!” / here dude, you better take two

this beer was not brewed in China / on Schlitz they’ve yet to get their mitts

I also bought myself a cd / Nancy Sinatra’s greatest hits

pigeons on the parking lot / I’m backing out now, scoot

I’ve had enough adventures / it’s home to beer and Nancy’s boots

walk on me, Sinatra
