The Lyrics

I'm heading back to Las Vegas at the end of next month, so it's time to get warmed up with some blackjack/gambling parodies. Remember folks, if you want to win in Vegas, play blackjack. And if you want to win at blackjack, learn how to count cards. Luck will only take you so far and will always run out in the end. The trick is to count cards without looking like you're doing it, so keep a low profile and don't draw attention to yourself. Everything you do in a casino is being captured by a security camera somewhere, so be sure to smile. ;-)
I wanna make a little bet
I'm gonna watch my money grow
When you get the final tally
Keep me off the T.V. shows
If you wanna make the money
You gotta take a little hell
If you wanna win in Vegas
You better play your blackjack well

I never felt the need to cheat
It only puts you in a hole
You can always make a rally
If your mind can take control
If you wanna keep your secret
You better hide your little tells
If you can't escape detection
You better never ring their bells

I always thought it would be easy
I always thought that I'd have fun
But I slid down to the valley
Before I found out how it's done
If you wanna try an angle
It only works for just a spell
If you wanna roll a seven
You're gonna throw your chips to hell

If you wanna win in Vegas
Then you must escape detection
If you wanna roll a seven
Then you'll never win in Vegas...

What's bet in Vegas doesn't have to stay in Vegas!

Always liked the OS, and since I'm a veteran of many trips to Lost Wages, I certainly appreciated your descriptions. I'm a roulette guy myself, knowing full well the odds are way stacked. Here are three $5 chips. Double-down if you can.

You'll '"bet" I give you 5's! Another enjoyable "blackjack" parody from you, 21! Love the "escape detection" lines in your song. One of my friends won $1000 in blackjack, but unfortunately got robbed as soon as we left the Showboat casino. Good luck in Vegas!

Mark: I hope you win your "bet", thanks for comment!

OMR: I try to stay out of Hell as much as possible. ;-)

Christie: Thanks for vote & comment, never be a showboat with your cash! But too bad for your friend.

AFW: Thanks, man.

Great job on one of my favorite OSes. I know I've said this before, but I cannot gamble without leaving the casino or even a bar or restaurant with video-poker, slot, keno or video lottery machines or any combination thereof, flat broke. Of course, the fact that I spend a lot of time around roulette, craps, keno, slots and offtrack horse and greyhound betting for gambling might have something to do with that. Good luck in Vegas, and here's $555 to get you started.
