The Lyrics

This is the OS I was lucky enough to be assigned by some evil genius. You can see the original HERE.
Vegas Or Bust…Just For Fun

Well, way out in the West I know a vacation place
Broads and booze is what I like to chase
I'm hoping all my debt I can erase
By winning at blackjack tonight
Ready? Play!

5, 10, dealer’s 20, bet is raised 30, waitress looks 40, patrons seem shifty, “date” is named “Trixie”, champagne costs 70, dealer just can’t wait he, “hits me” with 9 and, now I’m down…100

Vegas Or Bust…just for fun

Peanuts, pretzels, shots of gin
When I’m here I play to win - ("WIN!")

Oh, alright, I'll try a new game
It’s called Seven Card Stud, Bud
Here I go.

5, 10, chips a’ plenty, one card is showin’, “all in” I’m goin’, next card is turnin’, money I’m burnin’, stomach is churnin’, wrong cards I’m discernin’, lesson I’m learnin’, for an Ace I’m yearnin’, took a dive…again…I’m left with one 20


A dog has a tail and a rose has a stem
I need to find an ATM

Once again my wallet’s thicker
I think I’ll start pounding down some liquor
Need to see some girls pole dancing
To the strip club now I’m prancing
Lap is ready, let me in… now!

Paying dancers with fives is a good way to keep things alive. In fact, if you’re placing the bills in her g-string and you’re holding a wad of fives, her g-string might sag from all of the fives, you've spent.
Ok, just watch how I do it, now.
Pull on that g-string...
One fiver for each song that plays...
All Set…Steady…Now!

Now…I’m…seein’ plenty
“We’ve got a problem, sir, for more skin the cost is 20
That happens in the back
All Set…Ready…Let’s Go!”

Now…somewhere we’re gettin’…ready for pettin’…then she yells
“Thirty-five ?”
That’s the “cover”... each night
Price to get in is 35

Okay, just let me get this straight.. Now, when I pay for your dancing , it’s 20 per tune, but because I’m over 50, can I use my AARP card so that when we’re finished you’ll owe me 10 ?...

So…I…hand her 20…g-string I’m fillin’…she seems so willin’…music is pumpin’…my leg she’s humping…
“Seven and Seven…right?
That's twelve dollars”
Five drink min. costs 60
That’s how it works…

Now you may wonder that if I’m paying so much for each dancing number, my stash could then soon be zero; but if it costs me five large, in an odd way, it’s still worth the price to me

Ok, now let me pick one song…how ‘bout In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida
‘Cuz it’s a long one.
Drums playing…
Time For…Solo… Now!

Spend…another 20, dancing is dirty, dancer is flirty, lap she is grindin’, underware bindin’, Dockers are shredin’, legs she begins spreading, bouncer screams…
Threatens to…break all my fingers.

“What made you pick a seventeen minute oldies tune ?
You can’t do that, man”
Anyway, it’s 5:17, you’re 86ed

See, that happened one night in Vegas.. And I still had some money…15 ones, and a well-worn pocket of nickles…you know what I did…right?

I walked into the nearby diner
Filled with drunks and filthy china
And…I…ordered bacon, eggs they were makin’, rolls I was takin’, coffee was brewin’, chili was stewin’, it was just heavenly, I know that I’ll never…have more fun if I…live to be…100.

Vegas or bust…Just for fun

(Look of amazment on my face) O MY GOD!!! You did it!!! You turned this lousy at best "School House Rock" song into a song about going to a Strip-Club in Vegas! Talk about pulling a complete 180 on who the song appeals to. This awesome!
alvin - March 28, 2008 - Report this comment two favorite parts was the AARP bit and the "in-a-gadda-da-vida" lap dance...that would work out to about a buck a minute...extra credit for tarnishing a children's song

Thanks Aggy, Matty and alvin. This one was tough but fun,
I have to go to work. I'll be back with better comments late tonight.

Fantastic, and I echo Alvin's assessment re the rib-tickliest bits.
Matthias - March 31, 2008 - Report this comment
Not much to add here, but I think you should submit this for SOTM, because this was one of the funniest songs I've read in awhile, plus this song is so difficult I don't think Weird Al himself could have pulled this song off.

(SOTM) This is excellent. Well done!

(Challenge) HO...LY....FREAKIN...FRACK. I don't know how you did this, IB. This has got to be one of the most impressive bits of writing I've seen in a LONG while. Just....magnificent. 555+++++++

SOTM - The security code says 656, I guess that means it was close to Hell making this parody.

Holy s***, this is insanely epic. TMGLTMSIOMO: "I’m over 50, can I use my AARP card so that when we’re finished you’ll owe me 10?" LMAO.

I'm glad I forced you to add this one into SOTM. Good doesn't start to describe the epic humor and overall quality which is this parody.

(SOTM-Mar08) IB - You must have gotten out of there with your shirt - since most eateries will not serve if you have no shirt or shoes. You know the drill. This was over the top - well done Invsaboy.

Superb - talk about saving the best till last. Way too many good lines to mention. Keep it up, IB :-)

See above, this would be impossible to record

(SOTM) See above! And I second Jack's comment about recording it - tongue in a knot, anyone?

SOTM- Ah, Schoolhouse Rock. Sure brings back memories. Very well done, IB!
McKludge - April 30, 2008 - Report this comment
SOTM - This was damned impressive. With all the detail here, it sounds like you've spent enough time in Vegas. Now lets see some more Schoolhouse Rock parodies (Conjuction Junction, Good Good Eleven, just a Bill).

Well, you dominated this month, you already have my comment--and it hasn't changed a bit in my opinion since my first read, oh yeah--that's right, they don't . . .hilarious work IB.

(ABC) Still think this is one of the most impressive writes to be completed on the site to date. . .
stuart mcarthur - July 09, 2008 - Report this comment
(ABC) fantastic rhyming IB, and story-telling - I'm at a disadvantage in that I don't know the OS and my browser won't let youtube play it because of some faulty java setting that I haven't been able to fix - but it's kudos and 5s because clearly you nailed the parody from all the other praise here and the SOTM gold ferchrissakes - and when I fix the problem, I'm coming back to check this one out properly - 555
Stuart McArthur - July 15, 2008 - Report this comment
hi IB - finally manged to get my youtube working by redownloading flashplayer on mozilla - phew - this is amazing originally for the fact that you took an OS like this on, let alone some of your subs - I got lost on the pacing sometimes but that's because of the speed of the thing, not your subs - great imagination to find a parallel storyline, and some inspired subs like "Anyway, it’s 5:17, you’re 86ed" - looks like this will go down in amiright classicland

Well I'm new here as you know IB, so I'm just getting around to this one. I love Vegas and I loved your parody. Three of a kind wins this hand, 5-5-5.

Even though the link doesn't work anymore, this has to be one of the most clever parodies on this site.

If anyone wants to check out a real site classic try this one. It really needs to be read with the song playing to get the full effect.
Danielle - October 29, 2018 - Report this comment
Oh my God, that was too funny! I grew up with Schoolhouse Rock as a kid so I didn't need to hear the OS, I already had it in my head as I read it. Best part was the end "And... I... ordered bacon..." hahaha. MADtv already did some SHR parodies, but I'm gonna write one later today that I think will be as good as this one!
