  • You gotta help me out
    It's all a blur last night
    We need a taxi 'cause you're hung-over and I'm broke
    I lost my fake id but you lost the motel key
    Spare me your freakin' dirty looks
    Now don't blame me
    You roll the cash out
    And get the hell out of town

    [Chorus]
    Don't be a baby
    Remember what you told me
    Shut up and put your money where your mouth is
    That's what you get for waking up in Vegas
    Get up and shake the glitter off your clothes, now
    That's what you get for waking up in Vegas

    Why are these lights so bright
    Oh, did we get hitched last night, dressed up like Elvis,
    Why, am I wearing your class ring?
    Don't call your mother
    'Cause now we're partners in crime

    [Chorus]

    You got me into this
    Information overload, situation lost control
    Send out an S.O.S.
    And get some cash out
    We're gonna tear up the town

    Don't be a baby
    Remember what you told me
    Remember what you told me
    Remember what you told me
    Told me, you told me, you told me
    Shut up and put your money where your mouth is
    That's what you get for waking up in Vegas

    Get up and shake the glitter off your clothes, now
    That's what you get for waking up in Vegas
    That's what you get baby, shake the glitter, shake, shake, shake the glitter
    Give me some cash out, baby
    Give me some cash out, baby Writer/s: ANDREAS CARLSSON, KATY PERRY, DESMOND CHILD
