The Lyrics

Then again, neither are the Carpenters. This song is another one about CBGB: Las Vegas, the laughing stock of the punk rock community.
Las Vegas isn't puuuunk to meeee
Torn jeans and pooower choooords
Ramones get up and sing "Gaaaaabba Heyyyy!"
It just isn't punk

Wayne Newton's singing songs toniiiight
At Circus Ciiiircus, duuuuuuudes
We start with Blondie and leeeeearn to rooooock
Whoa, no! It isn't punk

Is CBGB gonna gamble it?
Taking the punk rock greats awaaaaay
Will all the bands be Elvis lookalikes?
Will Roy & Siegried play all daaaay, with Blondiiiie?

Since when is Vegas puuuunk? Long whiiiile?
So much Ramones are deeeead
They'll find a place for the New York Dolls?
You call Las Vegas punk?

Did I just mention punk rock's New York Dolls?
Watchin' the signs all go awaaaay
You won't see CB's at the Bowery
When Halloween comes soon in daaaays, you know it, you know it

A Marshall cranked to one? We smile
And laugh off booooth our heads
You crank to ten playin' poooower choooords
Now that's what I call puuuuunk!

Great idea, contrasting the Carpenters and punk. 555

I'm just trying to visualize the New York Dolls and Blondie trying to do a lounge lizard act. LOL! Joey Ramone is spinning.

Where could CBGBs go in Vegas? Harrah's? No, too many Midwesterners. Flamingo? No, Toni Braxton's figure is all over the windows on the Strip side. New York New York? YES!!!! Rita Rudner will be leaving NYNY soon, so CBGBs could take her place.
