A commercial jingle, ubiquitous on Las Vegas television when I was a lad, advertising the virtues of the financial institution known as Nevada Savings. Yessir, it's big! It's safe! It's friendly! If you love Nevada, you'll bank here! You do love Nevada, don't you, punk?

The song was so insidious that for quite some time I thought it was the official state song. I still sing it aloud whenever I cross the state line.

I love Nevada
You love Nevada
Yessir, livin' in Nevada's mighty
Fine, fine fine.

And when it comes to savings
The big, safe, friendly way,
It's Nevada Savings every time!
