The Lyrics

These times are lackin'
Good old Ratpackin'
Les Brown and smooth big bands..
Cool Frank, Dean, and Sammy
One triple whammy,
..Sinatra At The Sands!

Can't beat those "Sixties"
Doo wop and strip tease
Fun came with less demands..
Ann Margaret was 'Diva'
Vegas had Viva!
..Sinatra At The Sands!

Twirled hula hoops, Chubby was "Twistin"
And Tiny Tim took a bride...
Ali knocked out Sonny Liston
And life was just one big ride..

Lifebuoy and Lava,
Just wish I'd have a
Time machine in my hands..
Back there, I'd travel
To Drive Ins and gravel
And Sinatra At The Sands!

Ballads and blues, cages of "Go Go"
Color Tv got it's start
World on our string, like a YoYo
Frank sang and acted his art...

Lifebuoy and Lava,
Just wish I'd have
Time machine in my hands
Back there, I'd travel
To Drive Ins and gravel
And Sinatra At The Sands!

Sinatra At The Sands!!

Sinatra At The Sa-a-annnnds!!!

(Ring a ding ding! Bring on the broads..)

I think the Las Vegas version of the Sands still stands on desert sands, but the Atlantic City version is being demolished, only the hotel tower remains, which is probably going to need an implosion. I saw Frankie Valli at the Desert Inn when I went to Vegas, and now that's gone. Family-friendly Vegas? Say it ain't so, Frank! (Or Frankie!)
