Put on my raving shoes and I boarded a plane
Touched down in the land where the skies were blue
In the middle of the pouring rain
Everybody was happy, energy shining down on me
Yeah, I've got a first-class ticket, been as good as a boy can be

I'm raving, I'm raving
I'm raving til' the sweat drops fall down off me
I'm raving, I'm raving
But do I really feel the way I feel?

Yeah
Come on
Yeah

Put on my raving shoes and I boarded a plane
Touched down in the land where the skies were blue
In the middle of the pouring rain
Everybody was happy, energy shining down on me
Yeah, I've got a first class ticket, been as good as a boy can be

I'm raving, I'm raving
I'm raving til' the sweat drops fall down off me
I'm raving, I'm raving
But do I really feel the way I feel?

Yeah, come on, wicked, wicked, wicked
Give it up now, give it up now, give it up now
Yeah

I'm raving, I'm raving
I'm raving til' the sweat drops fall down off me
I'm raving, I'm raving
But do I really feel the way I feel?
But do I really feel the way I feel?

    General CommentThis is a cover of Mark Cohn's minor 1991 hit "Walking in Memphis".

    Mark Cohn had a "spiritual awakening" when he went to Memphis, the home of Carl Perkins, and all the other blues and country musicians that influenced the creation of rock&roll. But does he really feel that way, or he so overwhelmed that he's not sure what he's feeling?

    Scooter has a "spiritual awakening" every time they dance like maniacs with thousands of other sweaty people. But do they really feel that way, or is it just that pill they took on the way in?

    I never liked the original song when it came out, but after hearing Scooter's take on it… well, I definitely appreciate the catchiness of Cohn's piano riff, but I still think his song was pretentious, soppy, and silly. I'd rather be silly on purpose and rave til the sweat drops fall down off me. HP and the boys made a much better use of his riff.

    Compare the lyrics to the original:

    Put on my blue suede shoes / Put on my raving shoes
    And I boarded the plane / And I boarded a plane
    Touched down in the land / Touched down in the land
    Of the Delta Blues / Where the sky's so blue
    In the middle of the pouring rain / In the middle of the pouring rain
    W.C. Handy / Everybody was happy
    Won't you look down over me / Energy shining down on me
    Yeah, I got a first class ticket / Yeah, I've got a first-class ticket
    But I'm as blue as a boy can be / Been as good as a boy can be

    Then I'm walking in Memphis / I'm raving, I'm raving
    Walking with my feet ten feet off of Beale / I'm raving til' the sweat drops fall down off me
    Walking in Memphis / I'm raving, I'm raving
    But do I really feel the way I feel? / But do I really feel the way I feel?
