|Lyrics:||There’s a city of sin that doesn’t sleep at night
With a road that runs right through it
And you can hit it big if you play it right
Up and down the Vegas strip
It’s a city of skin and show ‘n ‘tell
But boy you gotta keep it nice
And you can make it big, but it’ll give you hell
If you wanna roll those dice
Where else could it be?
What else could I mean?
Yea, its goin down
I tell you friends
This is my kinda of town
If jacks and sevens are the cards you choose
You better double down on splits
Get to 21, if you win or lose
Man, you gotta roll with it
Its champagne wishes, and caviar dreams
When you’re dancing with a lucky lady
So fly on in, cause you might win
Yeah Im talking bout Vegas baby!

Said Dave: "I enjoy making a living making music as there is something always new to learn. If you know one instrument, you can learn another. If you know how to engineer one style, you can always learn another. My main question I ask myself when writing and making music is "what gives you goosebumps". The mechanics of songwriting and engineering can get quite technical, however at the end of the day its what makes you feel something."
