"Las Vegas and Me"

http://schicksville.com/Music/Vegas-JLS-MIX.mp3

Lyrics: Cal Francis DiFalco

Music: John Lawrence Schick

Sung by Myles Loud

 

Don’t wanna hear, about hard luck stories
Don’t cry to me about your life and the worries
I’m living free, no, I’m in no hurry
You know, Las Vegas and me

Don’t criticize, in this town there’s no rules
Go fantasize, roll the dice, play it cool
Don’t dramatize, don’t be playing the fool
You know, Las Vegas and me

I’m a swayer, I’m a stayer
Call my bluff and I’ll play ya
I’m a faker, I’m a shaker
I’m your private heaven breaker

(Hey Johnny, hit me again, looking for that ace)

You know, Las Vegas and Me

So don’t be surprised, when your head is a spinning
Don’t improvise, when you think you are winning
I’ll tell you why, this is just the beginning
You know, Las Vegas and Me

’Cause I’m a swayer, I’m a stayer
Call my bluff and I’ll play ya
I’m a faker, I’m a shaker
I’m your private heaven breaker

You know, you know, you know, Las Vegas and me!

Ha!!  What a fun song, very cool.  Excellent, lyrically and musically!  Oh, and let's not forget the vocalist, you went with the right man on this one!  He did a fantastic job on it. :cool: :cool: :cool:

Very nice! Has a bit of a 50's flavour to it... solid effort: both vocals and piano!

Sounds like it was written with Sinatra in mind :)

Thanks everyone!

Actually this was earmarked for Tony Bennett. We sent a copy to his son Dae. It's difficult getting singers like Diane Krall, Tony Bennett, etc, to record new songs. Most of their songs come from the "Great American Songbook". But it was worth a shot.

Thanks again, John :cool:
