  • Gonna sell my car and go to Vegas
    'Cause somebody told me
    That's where dreams would be
    Gonna sell my car and go to Vegas
    Finally see my name upon the Palace marquis

    Gonna quit my job and move to New York
    'Cause somebody told me that's where
    Dreamers should go
    I'm gonna quit my job and move to New York
    And tattoo my body with every Broadway show

    Listen up now honey, you're gonna be sorry
    Can't get out from under a sky that is falling
    And you say
    No fame no money I'm nobody
    The way I'm running has sure got me down
    On my knees
    But next stop, Vegas please
    I gotta get to Vegas
    Can you take me to Vegas?

    I'm gonna sell my house and cross the border
    'Cause somebody told me dreams live in Mexico
    I'm gonna sell my house I got to lose ten pounds
    And cross the border
    And make sweet love upon the white sandy shore

    Listen up now honey, you're gonna be sorry
    Can't get out from under a sky that is falling
    And you say
    No fame no money I'm nobody
    The way I'm running has sure got me down
    On my knees
    But next stop, Vegas please

    It's always just around the corner or you're
    On your way to somewhere
    That is bigger or better,
    If you could only get there
    It's never your fault you can't start your
    Own winning streak
    But I'd hate to lose you to the fortune you seek

    I'm gonna lose my mind and sail the ocean
    'Cause somebody told me there were
    Cherry blue skies
    I'm gonna fix my mind with a final destination
    And have a deep sleep upon a sweet dream
    I'll never realize, no

    Listen up now honey, you're gonna be sorry
    I can't get out from under a sky that is falling
    And you say
    No fame no money I'm nobody
    The way I'm running has sure got me down
    On my knees
    And next stop, Vegas please
    Can you take me to Vegas?
    I need to see Vegas
    Can you take me to Vegas? Writer/s: SARA BAREILLES
