Annotationen

Es war der Organist der Gruppe, Paul Revere Dick, der namensgebend für diese Band war. Die «Raiders» (Plünderer, Räuber) sind ein freches Wortspiel mit der historischen Begebenheit des Mitternachtsritts («Midnight ride») des berühmten Namensvetters, Paul Revere. Revere war ein Silberschmied und Buchdrucker aus Boston zur Zeit des amerikanischen Unabhängigkeitskriegs. Er war Mitglied der «Söhne der Freiheit» und der «Boston Tea Party» und tat sich als Patriot hervor, indem er am 18. April 1775 den Mitternachtsritt («Midnight ride») von Boston nach Lexington und Concord unternahm, um die dortigen Einwohner vor den herannahenden britischen Truppen zu warnen. Der Name der Band funktionierte ab 1965 auch als eine explizite Antwort auf die British Invasion.

Lyrics

Yeah! Well, I had to leave town because of Uncle Sam's deal, ha ha ha yeah Well, I guess my good lovin' done lost its appeal Because when I come back I heard the bad bad news They say our big romance has been gettin' abused Now tell me true, don't lie to me Have you been step, step, step, step, step, step, steppin' out on me? I've got ways of findin' out if you've been steppin' out on me It'll do me good and I'll give you a piece of my mind I told you once, I told you twice Stop your cattin' around or else I'll put you on ice I'm tellin' you baby what I want you to do Stop your messin' 'round, I'm gonna step out on you Hey! Hey! Hey hey hey! If I can't be your one & only man Well I'm goin' to your dad and give him back your hand yeah Then I'll call the preacher, tell the choir stay home Ha I guess you're the kind of woman that's just bound to roam Now tell me true, don't lie to me Have you been step, step, step, step, step, step, steppin' out on me? Tell the truth, child; you've been steppin' out on me I gotta know in my heart if you've been steppin' out on me I'll be checkin' with all your friends if you've been steppin' out on me Better tell me the truth honey; have you been steppin' out on me? Yeah I'm gonna check; no more stuff or I'll be steppin' out on you (more talk, fading out)
