The Lyrics

We’ve all been there, no?
Put on my big boy shoes and I
boarded the plane
touched down in the land where the gamblers lose
while they’re singin that sad refrain

need some good nose candy
but i know it won’t be free
yeah I’ve got a first class ticket
and a dealer who’s waiting for me

Got arrested in Vegas
They picked me up on the street and I started to squeal
Arrested in Vegas
You never want to feel the way I feel

Guy was dressed as Elvis
Guy I thought I knew
followed him down to the street of freemont
then I scored a gram or two

Now the police I did not see them
What they wanted i knew damn well
Now I’m a pretty little thing
Waiting for my king
Here in the holding cell

I Got arrested in Vegas
They picked me up on the street and I started to squeal
Arrested in Vegas
You never want to feel the way I feel

they will stab you if they’re able
you’ll smell urine in the air
a crazy scene - they’ll be glad to see you
‘cause you haven’t got a prayer
boy you’ve got no prayer in Vegas

There’s a guy they call Soprano
was in the aryan brotherhood
and they brought me down to see him
and he grabbed me where I stood
I was so outnumbered
yet I fought with all my might
he said tell me are you my new man-child?
and I said … guess I am tonight

arrested in Vegas
They picked me up on the street and I started to squeal
Arrested in Vegas
You never want to feel the way I feel

arrested in Vegas
They picked me up on the street and I started to squeal
Arrested in Vegas
You never want to feel the way I feel

Put on my big boy shoes and I
boarded the plane
touched down in the land where the gamblers lose
while they’re singin that sad refrain

touched down in the land where the gamblers lose
while they’re singin that sad refrain

I haven't been there, but apparently too many have, judging by the amount of 1-bombs. 5s
