Story Behind the Song

Santa tires of life at the North Pole and decides to let it all ride in Las Vegas instead.

Lyrics

Santa wrote his resume
his shop was in a disarray
used a snowglobe for an ashtray
wants to leave it all behind

He thought that he would try his luck
his savings fit a coffee cup
he's tired and he's had enough
of all this stupid cheer

hitch a ride to the desert
trades his suit for a sweatshirt
it's got to get better
This year Santa's all in

The flashing lights the ringing bells
it's like some sort of Christmas hell
surrounded by the ne'er-do-wells
they've got nowhere else to go

everyone has got white hair
everyone fills up their chair
it's like Santa's sitting everywhere
but no one knows it's him

He started with the penny slots
three lemons and a jackpot
Lady Luck and Jack Frost
are putting on a show

this year it's not snowing
three kings are showing
the stack is growing
this year Santa's all in

The queen of hearts, the Ace of Spades
by midnight wearing lampshades
making nice with chambermaids
and staying up till dawn

The cocktails and the cigarettes
he's checked the odds, he's placed his bets
he's doubling down on all regrets
he's never going back

this year it's not snowing
three kings are showing
the stack is growing
this year Santa's all in
