Blinded by the light Lyrics

Manfred Mann’s Earth Band

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

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 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

Blinded by the light
Madman drummers bummers,
Indians in the summer
Revved up like a deuce,
another runner in the night

With a teenage diplomat
Blinded by the light
In the dumps with the
mumps as the adolescent pumps
Revved up like a deuce,
another runner in the night
His way into his hat

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

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

Now Scott with a slingshot
finally found a tender spot
Revved up like a deuce,
another runner in the night
And throws his lover in the sand

Blinded by the light
And some bloodshot
forget-me-not said daddy’s
within earshot
Revved up like a deuce,
another runner in the night

Save the buckshot,
turn up the band
Blinded by the light
Some silicone sister
with a manager mister

Revved up like a deuce
another runner in the night
Told me I got what it takes
Blinded by the light
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
