The Lyrics

The Sahara / Casino / lounge, showplace of many entertainment greats of the past, and open since 1952, has recently closed it's doors.
A great casino, "Jewel of the Desert"
It had an entertainment flair,
You could not find anywhere
George Burns would soft shoe,
Charo would cha-cha
Liza Minelli's vocals led
Shirley Bassey knocked 'em dead..
Don Rickles worked his tease,
Insults from him would please
It was in...to be in Sin City,
For cel-eb-rit-ies..

In Las Vegas (Ve-!) At The Sahara (At the Sahara)
Quite often played, Miss Vaughan, sweet Sarah (where?)
In Las Vegas (Ve-!) At The Sahara
Top acts made splashes..between cymbal crashes,
In Las Vegas....Sahara's lounge

Sinatra sang there,
Frank and his Ratpack,
No pack like that pack, grand heydays
Quips and jokes and party ways..
A lifetime later, spirits still echo
Of that carouse that wowed the crowd,
Wild applause was long and loud
Memories are souvenoirs
From those great golden years..
Now shut down..never to re-open
..So long, bravo cheers..

In Las Vegas (Ve-!) At The Sahara (At the Sahara)
Where they made up..Dean Martin, Jerry, (friends)
In Las Vegas (Ve-!) At The Sahara
They closed it down, now..in Vegas town, now
An era ends

A great casino, hotel, and showplace
There just was no place..you could go
That would host a better show..
Like Bobby Darin, and Buddy Hackett
Johnny Carson appeared there
And George Carlin sparked the air
Louis Prima, Keely Smith
Wayland, Madame, he was with
The Duke Of Ellington,
And Tina Turner's buns
For all the Icons..all the Star bygones,
Sahara was the one..

In Las Vegas (Ve-!) At The Sahara (At the Sahara)
Where they'd unite..Dean Martin, Jerry, (friends)
In Las Vegas (Ve-!) At The Sahara
It's all closed down, now..in Vegas town, now
An era ends

An era ends
