Blinded by the Light Lyrics

Blinded by the light
Revved up like a deuce,
Another runner in the night

Blinded by the light
Revved up like a deuce
Another runner in the night

Blinded by the light
Revved up like a deuce
Another runner in the night

Madman drummers bummers
Indians in the summer with a teenage diplomat
In the dumps with the mumps as the adolescent pumps his way into his hat
With a boulder on my shoulder
Feelin’ kinda older
I tripped the merry-go-round

With this very unpleasin’
Sneezin’ and wheezin’
The calliope crashed to the ground
The calliope crashed to the ground!

But she was…
Blinded by the light
Revved up like a deuce
Another runner in the night

Blinded by the light
Revved up like a deuce
Another runner in the night

Blinded by the light
Revved up like a deuce
Another runner in the night

Blinded by the light
Revved up like a deuce
Another runner in the night

Some silicone sister with a manager mister told me I got what it takes
She said “I’ll turn you on sonny to something strong, play the song with the funky break”
And go-cart Mozart was checkin’ out the weather chart to see if it was safe outside
And little Early-Pearly came by in his curly-wurly and asked me if I needed a ride
Asked me if I needed a ride!

But she was…
Blinded by the light
Revved up like a deuce
Another runner in the night
Blinded by the light

She got down but she never got tired
She’s gonna make it through the night
She’s gonna make it through the night

[Bridge]
But mama, that’s where the fun is
But mama, that’s where the fun is
Mama always told me not to look into the eye’s of the sun
But mama, that’s where the fun is

Some brimstone baritone anticyclone rolling stone preacher from the east
Says, “Dethrone the dictaphone
Hit it in it’s funny bone, that’s where they expect it least”
And some new-mown chaperone
Was standin’ in the corner, watching the young girls dance
And some fresh-sown moonstone
Was messin’ with his frozen zone, reminding him of romance
The calliope crashed to the ground

But she was…
Blinded by the light
Revved up like a deuce
Another runner in the night

Blinded by the light
Revved up like a deuce
Another runner in the night

[The following two sections are sung simultaneously]

(Madman drummers bummers, Indians in the summer with a teenage diplomat)
Blinded by the light
Revved up like a deuce
Another runner in the night

(In the dumps with the mumps as the adolescent pumps his way into his hat)
Blinded by the light
Revved up like a deuce
Another runner in the night

(With a boulder on my shoulder, feelin’ kinda older, I tripped the merry-go-round)
Blinded by the light
Revved up like a deuce
Another runner in the night

(With this very unpleasin’, sneezin’ and wheezin, the calliope crashed to the ground)
Blinded by the light
Revved up like a deuce
Another runner in the night

(Now Scott with a slingshot finially found a tender spot and throws his lover in the sand)
Blinded by the light
Revved up like a deuce
Another runner in the night

(And some bloodshot forget-me-not said daddy’s within earshot save the buckshot, turn up the band)
Blinded by the light
Revved up like a deuce
Another runner in the night

(Some silicone sister with a manager mister told me I go what it takes)
Blinded by the light
Revved up like a deuce
Another runner in the night

(She said “I’ll turn you on sonny to”)
Blinded by the light
(“something strong”)

She got down but she never got tired
She’s gonna make it through the night

Story Behind Song: Blinded By The Light by Manfred Mann’s Earth … teamrock.com

“…Manfred Mann might agree. He might even suggest that he made a better career out of Dylan than Dylan did in the 60s, and a better career out of Springsteen in the 70s than Springsteen did. Manfred took Dylan’s Mighty Quinn to No.1 and If You Gotta Go, Go Now to No.2 – neither of which Dylan bothered to release as singles at the time – and scored a US No.1 in 1976 with Springsteen’s Blinded By The Light – something Springsteen has never done.

Manfred first heard Blinded By The Light on Springsteen’s debut album, Greetings From Asbury Park – or rather, he missed it. ..
Manfred had bought the album on the recommendation of a Philadelphia radio DJ. He was one of a modest number of people to buy it – certainly not enough to trouble the chart compilers. Top of his potential singles list was Spirits In The Night, which he recorded in 1975, but which failed to make any impact. The following year he turned his attention to Blinded By The Light for Manfred Mann’s Earth Band’s The Roaring Silence album.

“The original version – which didn’t get on to the album – was very long and elaborate, quite different to what you hear now,” he says. “I spent ages fiddling with it, and eventually realised that if we cut out the stopping and starting at the end of every verse then we could get somewhere. I knew there was some magic in it, particularly at the end with the two voices singing the verse and chorus together.
..”
