   Blinded by the light
Wrapped up like a noose another rumor 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






------ guitar solo ------
Mama always told me not to look into the eye of the sun
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 eyes 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 its 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}
1)



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
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

 With this very unpleasin', sneezin' and wheezin, the 

calliope 

crashed to the ground





~ With a boulder on my shoulder, feelin' kinda older, I 


tripped the merry-go-round~













~ Now Scott with a slingshot finally found a tender spot and throws his lover in the sand
~ And some bloodshot forget-me-not said daddy's within earshot save the buckshot, turn up the band





~ Some silicone sister with a manager mister told me I go what it takes
~ She said "I'll turn you on sonny to something strong"




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