The Lyrics

Someday I'm going to put together a Blackjack team with a large bankroll and we will take Las Vegas by storm! .....It could happen. ;-)
We all came out to Vegas
In the scorching summer sunshine
To play Blackjack with advantage
Put our cash on the line
Mandalay and the Plaza
Had the best games around
But some morons with a big team
Burned the games to the ground
Smoke on the tables, a dire time to die
Smoke on the tables

They burned out our Blackjack games
They died with a mournful sound
Suits and goons were running in and out
Kicking dudes off the grounds
When the roust was over
We had to find another game
High time was running out
It did no good to point the blame
Smoke on the tables, caught fire from the guy
Smoke on the tables

We ended up at the Grand Hotel
Creeping in to the lion’s lair
But with some decent rules and some bigger bets
We had advantage there
With a few good counts, and a few old tricks
We made a game, no sweat
No matter what we win out of this
I know, I know we'll never forget
Smoke on the tables, our fire not denied
Smoke on the tables

Last year someone tried to organize a world record event: the most guitarists simultaneously playing "Smoke on the Water" at the baseball park in Kansas City, Kansas. I volunteered to participate. I don't own a guitar, but I do have a flare gun. They did not think that was funny.

Wish I had had some smoke on the tables the times I was out there, but it was not to be. Good parody and use of OS on this one.

Another "Blackjack" themed parody from you! I hear that most smoke infested places are one of the most popular hot spots around! Some lounges and casinos I used to go prohibit smoking for awhile due to the fire from someone's cigar! You also ought to put a Blackjack team together as well! Sssssmmmokin' parody! 5's!

Hehe... Can't count cards, but Christie Marie and I can wear slinky evening gowns and diamonds and sit with you in the casino while you play... kind of like 007... (0021?) Or is that only for poker games? :D

Patrick: many chords can you play on a flare gun? ;-)

Player stands, thanks for v/c!

T1K: Thanks and better luck next time.

Christie: Smokin' comments, thanks. Um, Fiddlegirl has volunteered you for a little job :-D

Fiddlegirl: A little arm candy works for blackjack as well as poker. You are on the team!'ll have to bring your own diamonds, hehe. ;-)
