The Lyrics

As I said a few days ago, I was in Vegas last weekend and the sight of Las Vegas at dawn, which I think is quite beautiful, stirred up this tribute. Who knows, I might even send this tribute to the Nevada Dept of Tourism -- see what they think
Woke up, it was a Vegas morning and the first thing that I heard
Was a voice shrieking in the hallway, "You miserable bastard"
You gambled away kid's college fund, then had a bimbo caper
Oh, don't you stay, you will rue this day
Cause I'm serving divorce papers

Woke up, it was a Vegas morning and the first thing that I see
A dude in my room with a magnum and it's pointed straight at me
"You begged for time to pay gambling debts, then you gave me a shuck and jive"
Oh you best pray, or get up and pay
And you might leave this room alive

Now the curtains open on the antics of last night
And the rooms are filled with anguished cries
And vases fly, and spouses lie
Trying to put things right

Woke up, it was a Vegas morning and the first thing that I knew
There were bros sprawling in the hallway and I'm lying in my puke
And the headache roared in like a tidal wave, was dulling all my senses
Oh won't I learn, it's pain that you earn
When you party in present tenses

Now the bill is owing for my antics on the Strip
I'm an old man in my fifties now
Must take a vow, to learn somehow
That I'm too old for this sh*t
Oh baby, too old to
Wake up to a Vegas morn-EEENG!

Your pacing is way off. Might want to tweak it a little before you send it to the Nevada Department of Tourism.

Don't remember the original well enough to comment on the pacing. As they say "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas". But now there is a new casino just a couple of miles from where I live, so folks don't have to fly out to the desert to lose the rent and retirement fund. How convenient.

Patrick, the OS is from early in Joni Mitchell's career and is a richly upbeat and evocative description of living in the Chelsea district of NYC -- so much so that the word around the campfire is that the Clintons named their daughter after this song. This, of course, clashes with the thrust of my song, which is the aftermath of getting too carried away in Vegas

Nice one Lennie. Clever choice of OS and funny. I spent a few days in Vegas once, with my wife and two young daughters: put coins in the machines - coffee machines; walked the length of the strip at midnight, lay by the pool at Circus Circus, all you can eat buffets for $5. My wife got accosted by creepy guys saying 'We were meant to meet'. Kind of an adult neon Fantasyland, cheap and memorable and quite a contrast to Zion Canyon where we'd just been. Thanks for the memories. Guess it's changed, huh?

If you fly into Vegas and stay at a pricey hotel like the Rio, it can get a little expensive. The buffet there was $20. And the taxis gouge the hell out of you -- $30 for a trip to hotel that's right behind Caesar's Palace to the airport, And yes, Vegas has gotten much more crowded -- there are 50,00 hotel rooms on the Strip now
