From the “Human Menagerie” LP.

Lazy stage-star; wanna be a raver
You’ve gotta make it all happen insane
Crazy raver; wanna be a big star
You’ve gotta make it all happen again
You want it easy but you don’t understand
They’ll crush your diamonds in a one-night stand
You’ll be a “Biggie” then you’ll be a “nobody-at-all”
So while you’re there you’d better show us a ball
And wear your sequins or wear nothing at all
Take us to heaven with our backs to the wall
The climbing’s hard but it’s easy to fall
Oh! here’s a monkey with a message for us all
Go be a Crazy Raver, oh! oh! yeah
Go be a Crazy Raver

Maybe lady; wanna be my baby
Go to heaven in your satin and lace
Crazy baby, gotta dress so shady
Then come and meet me in some far-out place
We’ll go together like water and sand
Be seen together walking hand-in-hand
A pair of swells who’ve got nothing to do but romance
You’ll be a rhapsody, The Belle o’ the Dance
Become a stir and play the public nuisance
Ascend a stairway up to Paris in France
Become the lady of the Dietrich stance
Then pick the one of your nouveau fancy
And be a Crazy Raver
And be a Crazy Raver
